HBO, which last fall filmed a pilot for a TV series based on George R. R. Martin’s A Song of Fire and Ice fantasy novels, announced today that they are moving ahead with the project, called A Game of Thrones, after the first book in the series.
The cast includes Mark Addy, Sean Bean, Peter Dinklage, Jennifer Ehle, Iain Glen, and Lena Headey.
