+ - HBO aquires rites to 'Song of Ice and Fire'

Submitted by jimfinity
jimfinity (849860) writes "HBO has picked up the rites to start a series based on George R. R. Martin's popular fantasy series 'Song of Ice and Fire.' From the article ( http://www.variety.com/article/VR1117957532.html?c ategoryid=14&cs=1 ):

"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."

Martin's journal (http://grrm.livejournal.com/11326.html) also has some comments about the series."

According to the latest official figures, 43% of all statistics are totally worthless.
