New Game Of Thrones contracts have been signed by the core cast, with big names signing up until season 7…
We don’t often cover contract-signing news on this site, not least because it’s often very dull reading. However, this nugget of Game Of Thrones news has some interesting connotations for the future of the show.
We’ve learnt today, it would seem, that HBO is rightly confident in their hugely popular show and has planned further ahead than ever with this latest batch of negotiations with the cast.
Key players Kit Harington, Peter Dinklage, Lena Headey, Emilia Clarke and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau have all received big raises in return for signing up for three more potential seasons. Their new contracts will take them through to the end of season 7, if everything goes to plan.
Lower down on the payscale, but still nonetheless important to the future of the show, Natalie Dormer, »
HBO is not wasting time to plot the 7th season of Game of Thrones. The popular series was renewed for a fifth and sixth season this summer, with high hopes for more episodes. Now HBO is trying to lock in the cast into a contractor for their 7th season which could be a possible end game for the show. This includes Peter Dinklage, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau and Lena Headey being signed on for the yet to even be confirmed season.
This is exciting and sad news. The network has hinted that if they reach a 7th season, that would be where they end. So it will be very sad news to hear that a 7th will finally take place, which will also be an amazing feat for a series based on an unfinished book series. I am sure HBO is counting on that, but we do applaud them for trying here to prepare for it. »

The Bennet sisters from Jane Austen's beloved novel get a zombie-killing makeover in our first look at Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. Elizabeth (Lily James), Lydia (Ellie Bamber), Mary (Millie Brady), Jane (Bella Heathcote), and Kitty (Suki Waterhouse) show off their swords and knives in this image, which teases how these characters have evolved from eligible single ladies to fierce warriors.
The project is based on Seth Grahame-Smith's novel, which takes Jane Austen's characters and plunges them into a world set 70 years after the zombies first took over the planet. Pride and Prejudice and Zombies was stuck in development for several years, with David O. Russell writing the script and set to direct at one point, before Burr Steers came aboard in August.
Seth Grahame-Smith's Pride and Prejudice and Zombies has been in and out of development for years. But last month the project finally started shooting, and, thanks to EW, today we have our first look at the film in the form of a promo photo featuring the Bennet Sisters. From left to right they include Lydia (Ellie Bamber), Jane (Bella Heathcote), Elizabeth (Lily James), Mary (Millie Brady), and Kitty (Suki Waterhouse).
Fighting and killing zombies with weapons and martial arts skills isn't anything new for the characters in this story. The zombie plague has been around for 70 years by the time Pride and Prejudice and Zombies picks up. It's just in the meantime they are dealing with marriage prospects and family drama.
The book is an expanded version of the Jane Austen classic, and the film will focus on Liz Bennett, a woman on a quest for love and independence »

Who’s ready to see Elizabeth (Lily James), Lydia (Ellie Bamber), Mary (Millie Brady), Jane (Bella Heathcote), and Kitty Bennet (Suki Waterhouse) take on some “unmentionables?” Burr Steers’ book to film adaptation of Seth Grahame-Smith’s Pride and Prejudice and Zombies is currently in production and EW’s got our very first look at the sisters wielding swords and daggers. Hit the jump to take a look at the new Pride and Prejudice and Zombies image. The film is expected to hit theaters next year and also stars Lena Headey, Charles Dance, Matt Smith, Douglas Booth, Jack Huston and Sam Riley. This big screen rendition of Grahame-Smith’s book has been kicking around for a while and at one point, David O. Russell penned a script and made plans to direct as well. However, that never panned out and Steers took over instead, rewriting Russell’s script while making “realism” a top priority. »

Key “Game of Thrones” actors have commanded big raises in contract renegotiations that extend their deals through a seventh season of the hit HBO drama.
“Thrones” is in the midst of filming its fifth season, to bow in the spring. The actors’ deals previously ran through the show’s sixth season. According to Deadline, stars Peter Dinklage, Kit Harington, Lena Headey, Emilia Clarke and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau will reach the $300,000 per episode range for the coming seasons.
With “Thrones” emerging as the most-watched show in HBO’s history, it’s a safe bet that “Thrones” will be on the air through at least seven seasons. HBO gave “Thrones” a two-season renewal earlier this year.
Other members of the large ensemble are also said to have extended through season seven.

Thrones‘ main actors had been signed through six seasons of the sweeping fantasy drama. The recent renegotiation provides an option for Season 7, which hasn’t yet been greenlit but is about as certain as Drogon flambéing anything in his path.
Season 7 also is likely to be the drama’s swan song, »

Yes, George R. R. Martin, we know that every man must die. But that doesn't make the deaths on Game of Thrones any less painful to watch.

As Game of Thrones continues to shoot its Season 5 episodes, which will debut spring 2015, HBO has signed the cast to appear in a potential Season 7, which has not officially been renewed just yet.
HBO renegotiated the main stars' contracts using a tiered system that now factors in these potential upcoming episodes. The principle actors were only signed through Game of Thrones Season 6. In exchange for these Season 7 options, HBO has given everyone a substantial raise, which makes the entire cast amongst the highest paid on cable TV.
In April of this year, Game of Thrones was renewed for both Season 5 and Season 6. While this impending seventh season hasn't been green lit, it is considered highly likely given that the HBO fantasy drama is a ratings smash and an awards favorite.
Because the series has such a large and diverse cast, it had to employ this unique 'tier' system. In tier »
The fifth season has yet to air, but it's not a surprise that HBO wants to keep their most popular and lucrative show, "Game Of Thrones," running. The network has just renegotiated their contracts with the cast to include an option for a seventh season (the show is currently confirmed to run at least through season six), with a pay bump for all involved, though with a clear line in the sand between A-tier and B-tier actors. Kit Harington (Jon Snow), Peter Dinklage (Tyrion Lannister), Lena Headey (Cersei Lannister), Emilia Clarke (Daenerys Targaryen) and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau will be the highest paid thesps on the show, with Natalie Dormer (Margaery Tyrell), Sophie Turner (Sansa Stark), and Maisie Williams on the second rung. A seventh season hasn't been officially given a go-ahead, but barring some kind of disaster, it's likely to happen. [THR] Netflix isn't just making new shows for adults. The streaming »

The stars of HBO's smash series "Game of Thrones" are used to jockeying for power in Westeros, and now they'll be among the highest-paid performers on cable in the real world. The hit show's main stars were only signed on for six seasons, and they've gone through a major contract renegotiation with HBO, including pay raises and an option for season 7. The raises were decided through a "tier system," according to The Hollywood Reporter. Such "A" tier stars as Kit Harington (Jon Snow), Peter Dinklage (Tyrion Lannister), Lena Headey (Cersei Lannister), Emilia Clarke (Daenerys Targaryen) and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Jaime Lannister) will receive the biggest raises.

Although we don't know for sure that Game Of Thrones will be renewed for a seventh season, given the show's immense popularity it seems pretty much a certainty. Taking that into account, THR report that the main cast members have renegotiated their contracts and signed on for the next season with a lot of extra coin in their pickets. In fact, according to the site this new deal would make them the highest paid actors on cable TV. Here's how the tiered pay-system works according to their sources: The "A" tier — which includes actors Kit Harington (Jon Snow), Peter Dinklage (Tyrion Lannister), Lena Headey (Cersei Lannister), Emilia Clarke (Daenerys Targaryen) and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Jaime Lannister) — is paid at the highest level. The "A" tier actors are said to have renegotiated their deals in tandem. The so-called "B" tier — which is said to include co-stars Natalie Dormer (Margaery Tyrell), Sophie »
