First-Person Shooter Knockoff Meets Flaacid Oliver Stone. Terrific. What a Way to Kill a Franchise!

Variety: “HBO has acquired the rights to turn George R.R. Martin’s bestselling fantasy series ‘A Song of Fire & 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.”


  1. Eeeeee. They would be better off to have Martin write ALL the screenplays. He worked on the ’80s Twilight Zone revival and was a producer and writer for Beauty and the Beast, so TV writing is no mystery to him.
