Did You Know?

Personal Quote:

[on the 'Game of Thrones' series] Wiser network heads might have said 'You can't kill Sean Bean nine episodes into your show'. Guess what? The lead dies. That's why HBO is HBO. They break all the rules.

Trivia:

Has several projects at various stages of development, including his own script "Alpha" at DreamWorks and several adaptations. Marc Forster, currently working off Benioff's script "Stay", is developing "Alpha" to direct. See more »
