Song of Fire & Ice TV Series

American cable company HBO have acquired the rights to make a TV series of George R R Martin's A Song of Fire & Ice, according to It'll be scripted by David Benioff and D. B. Weiss.

Martin is quoted:

"They tried for 50 years to make 'Lord of the Rings' as one movie before Peter Jackson found success making three, [...] My books are bigger and more complicated, and would require 18 movies. Otherwise, you'd have to choose one or two characters."

You can also see more of Martin's own comments on his livejournal.

I really, really hope that one of the cable companies in Ireland pick this up. I can't wait to see it.
