HBO:冰与火之歌

在chud.com看到消息,hbo已经买下冰与火之歌系列的电视改编权.大概以每部书一季一共七季的方式推出.杀人如麻的乔治rr马丁说到:"有人花了五十年时间试图用一部电影拍出魔戒,最后彼得积逊发现用三部比较合适.我的小说比它更加庞大和复杂,我琢磨着全部搞定怎么也要他十八部。不然的话,你就只能拍一两个角色的主线."David Benioff 和Weiss将会作为全系列每季每集的剧本和制作,不过马丁自己好像也会写一部分剧本.

目前没有关于上档时间或者演员方面的消息.史塔克家的几个主要角色的年纪都很小,不知道他们会以什么方式挑选扮演者,最好是按年龄换演员----如果像哈里波特那样眼睁睁看着演员长大的话,估计撑不到马丁写完的时候.

HBO turns 'Fire' into fantasy series
By MICHAEL FLEMING

HBO has acquired the rights to turn George R.R. Martin's bestselling fantasy series "A Song of Fire and Ice" into a dramatic series to be written and exec produced by David Benioff and D.B. Weiss.

"Fire" is the first TV project for Benioff ("Troy") and Weiss ("Halo") and will shoot in Europe or New Zealand. Benioff and Weiss will write every episode of each season together save one, which the author (a former TV writer) will script.


The series will begin with the 1996 first book, "A Game of Thrones," and the intention is for each novel (they average 1,000 pages each) to fuel a season's worth of episodes. Martin has nearly finished the fifth installment, but won't complete the seven-book cycle until 2011.


The author will co-exec produce the series along with Management 360's Guymon Casady and Created By's Vince Gerardis.


Martin's series has drawn comparisons to J.R.R. Tolkien, because both are period epics set in imagined lands. But Martin has eschewed Tolkien's good-vs.-evil theme in favor of flawed characters from seven noble families.


The book has a decidedly adult bent, with sex and violence comparable to series like "Rome" and "Deadwood."


"They tried for 50 years to make 'Lord of the Rings' as one movie before Peter Jackson found success making three," Martin said. "My books are bigger and more complicated, and would require 18 movies. Otherwise, you'd have to choose one or two characters."


Aside from writing the most recent draft of "Halo," Weiss recently adapted the William Gibson novel "Pattern Recognition" for WB and director Peter Weir.

Benioff and Weiss were repped by CAA and Management 360.
