"Game of Thrones" to begin filming this fall

This isn't political in nature, but is still damned cool none the less.

The Song of Ice & Fire series by George R.R. Martin is being developed as a television series by HBO. The plan is for each book of the series to take a season's worth of episodes, in the style of "Rome" and "Deadwood".

The pilot episode was just scheduled to begin filming this fall in Northern Ireland.

Casting hasn't started yet, but there are rumors that Adrian Paul (from the Highlander series) will be cast as Ned Stark, and Peter Dinklage as Tyrion Lannister.
