Game Of Thrones Cast Won’t Have Access To Season 8 Scripts As HBO Tightens Security

16 October 2017 9:38 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

For years, Game of Thrones has retained the rather unfortunate title of TV’s most-pirated show. But during season 7, things threatened to spiral out of control.

Not only did HBO’s international partner leak episode 4, “The Spoils of War,” two days ahead of schedule, but the network itself was crippled by a massive security breach, when 1.5 terabytes of data was stolen. Subsequent reports later confirmed that the two incidents were entirely unrelated but by that stage, the damage was already done, and season 7’s penultimate instalment, “Beyond the Wall,” was posted online prior to HBO’s initial broadcast.

It turns out Thrones fans needn’t worry about HBO repeating the same mistakes during the crucial eighth season though, as Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Jaime Lannister) told Scandinavian talk show Skavlan (via Fansided) that he won’t have access to season 8’s scripts, and will instead learn his lines through an earpiece.

13 October 2017 2:23 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Game of Thrones” is going to great lengths to protect leaks for its upcoming eighth and final season. Following the HBO hack earlier this year, the cast will not receive scripts and will instead wear earpieces and listen to the lines that they are to deliver, according to cast member Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Jaime Lannister). “We’re not even going to get the script,” he said on Scandinavian show “Skavlan.” Also Read: 'Game of Thrones' Showrunners Will Direct Series Finale Coster-Waldau explained that the actors in the first few seasons would typically receive a hard copy of scripts before shooting episodes. »

Sneaky Game Of Thrones Set Pic Seemingly Confirms Tormund’s Fate

12 October 2017 2:38 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

If you live in hope that Tormund Giantsbane and Brienne of Tarth will rekindle their “love affair” with Game of Thrones season 8, we have good news: Kristofer Hivju has been spotted in Belfast, the show’s home base, as filming on the eighth and final season gets underway.

First reported by BuzzFeed (with a tip of the hat to Instagram user ‘@ketel_cat’), it’s understood many of the show’s key players have been spotted moseying around Northern Ireland’s capital – Emilia Clarke (Daenerys Targaryen), Kit Harington (Jon Snow Aegon Targaryen), Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Jaime Lannister), Pilou Asbæk (Euron Greyjoy), Iain Glen (Jorah Mormont), Isaac Hempstead Wright (Bran Stark), and Jacob Anderson (Grey Worm).

But of all the many famous faces hitting the Belfast streets, it’s Kristofer Hivju that has generated the most excitement. That’s because his Tormund was last seen fleeing the Night King in season 7’s grand finale, »

Backup Media Group has upped current COO Guillaume Lirondiere to become a partner in the Paris-based company, along with co-founders David Atlan-Jackson and Joel Thibout.

Jean-Baptiste Babin, one of Backup Media Group’s founding partners, will be stepping down from his operational role at the company by the end of the year to take another high-profile industry job.

“I am so proud of what we have achieved over the past 15 years, and I’m convinced Backup’s slate will carry on shining with ambitious films which hit the market strong,” said Babin.

Game of Thrones: Prequel Series Likely to Air in 2019 or 2020 Says George Rr Martin

3 October 2017 10:18 PM, PDT | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

It's all in the game. As the Game of Thrones TV show heads towards its eighth and final season, HBO is working like a dragon is breathing fire down its neck, in order to set up its five (as of now) potential Game of Thrones spinoffs -- specifically in the form of prequel series. Author George R. R. Martin says Bryan Cogman, who has worked his way up the ranks from script coordinator, all the way to supervising producer of the original series has boarded one of the prequels as writer and will share a co-creator credit with none other than Martin, himself. An HBO fantasy drama, Game of Thrones stars Peter Dinklage, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Lena Headey, Emilia Clarke, Aidan Gillen, Kit Harington, Diana Rigg, Sophie Turner, and Maisie Williams. The cast also includes Alfie Allen, John Bradley, Gwendoline Christie, Liam Cunningham, »

Game Of Thrones Actor Rubbishes Talk Of HBO Shooting Multiple Series Finales

2 October 2017 7:30 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

HBO shooting multiple endings for Game of Thrones season 8? Don’t count on it.

Three weeks ago, HBO programming president Casey Bloys hinted that the show’s creative players had drawn up plans for numerous finales in order to keep a lid on spoilers. This heightened caution can largely be traced back to season 7, when a high-profile leak and internal gaffe led to multiple episodes being posted online ahead of schedule. And yet, Game of Thrones‘ viewership still managed to scale new heights.

With the eighth and final season, though, it’s clear that everyone involved is pulling to create something truly special, after HBO announced its roster of directors for Game of Thrones season 8. But at least according to Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, who plays the redeemed Jamie Lannister on the hit fantasy drama, filming multiple finales to negate spoilers is a “really stupid” idea, as it would cause the show’s production budget to sky-rocket. »

‘The Simpsons’: ’Game of Thrones’ to ‘Lord of the Rings,’ Every Fantasy Reference in the Packed Premiere

1 October 2017 5:30 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Even though “Game of Thrones” fans are in for a very long hiatus before its final season, “The Simpsons” filled the void by paying homage to HBO’s fantasy epic on Sunday night. The animated series’ Season 29 premiere is set in an alternate world called “The Serfsons,” in which fantasy references abound from popular TV shows, movies, novels, video games, and RPGs.

First, it’s important to make the distinction between any general Medieval or fantasy reference and an actual homage to actual properties like “Lord of the Rings” or “Game of Thrones.” Even though J.R.R. Tolkien is accepted as the father of modern fantasy (high fantasy specifically), he did not invent the genre, and therefore many hallmarks of the genre – such as flying fire-breathing dragons – seen in the episode are not credited to any particular source. »

Sunday’s (29th!) season premiere of The Simpsons transported viewers to a fantasy world where Hobbits are on the menu, Narnia‘s Aslan moonlights as a door-to-door evangelist and Genital Smurfs are among the fastest-spreading STDs in all the land.

Nikolaj Coster-Waldau on Climate Change, Trump and Jaime Lannister's Chances of Survival

18 September 2017 9:08 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

The season 7 finale of Game of Thrones showed a rip-roaring argument between Cersei and Jaime Lannister, with Cersei threatening to have her brother/lover killed for not obeying her. We were left with Jaime heading North, to fight in the Great War.

During an appearance yesterday in Manhattan, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, who plays Jamie, said he doesn’t know if his character will survive to the end of season 8, which begins filming in October: “No idea, I don’t have a clue.”

The war over Westeros aside, Coster-Waldau is focused on preserving the world we all inhabit.
