McCarthy, Dinklage to re-team for pilot
The Station Agent collaborators Tom McCarthy and Peter Dinklage are set to work together again on the HBO fantasy pilot
Game of Thrones.
The Hollywood Reporter said McCarthy has signed on to direct Dinklage in
Thrones, a small-screen adaptation of George R.R. Martin's popular
Songs of Fire and Ice novels.
David Benioff and D.B. Weiss wrote the pilot script and will serve as executive producers.
Thrones is slated to begin in the fall in Belfast, Northern Ireland, the entertainment industry trade newspaper said.
