Season 5 General news thread (Mark your spoilers!)
Permalink  
 

Let's use this baby here for small bits of S5 news that won't have a thread of their own.

Like the fact that the new director, Michael Slovis has previously worked on...*drum roll for completely under the radar and prematurely cancelled but fantastic TV show*  Rubicon.

So far, so good. highfive

Well well well, I loved everything about that show. This show could use a little subtlety instead of the INYOFACE direction it had most of the recent seasons. Also,

freakout?

Well, MW has said she starts shooting S5 at the end of July, so you'd think we'd get some casting news leaking out before too long. Also wonder where they will film exteriors for that?  It's always felt like it should be like Venice or Amsterdam to me but doubt that they'd want to do too much other than scene setting shots perhaps, with a lot being interiors on a set. It shouldn't be hot looking anyway, I think the place has lots of fog IIRC.

Looks like the North will be a major focus in season 5, which is great considering it's the best part in ADWD. And they're pulling TWOW material for it, too! Great stuff

I just hope D&D continue with their deviation and keep up the quality writing. And keep Michelle MacClaren out. FHRITP.

They actually went ahead and cut Arianne. Siddig and Pryce are excellent casting but my excitement for S5 has evaporated.

Keeping Dorne, in any capacity, and leaving out the Greyjoys has caused my enthusiasm for S5 to wain.

Paring down Dorne and the Greyjoys makes me happier than a pig in shit.

I was kinda meh because we are going into the two weakest books in the series....but the casting has made me yippie
But I do find the lack of any Greyjoys a bit odd.....but meh...maybe D&D know that they arent going anywhere and cut them early...who knows.

 Yeah, I don't really care anymore. They seem rather out of place even in the books. I would have liked Euron, if only to give Yara more to do.

No I wonder if he won't be partially fulfilling the role of BM (sorry, how do we spoiler tag? Can't find it on the Posting How To).

Owen Teale looks so fly, even in a ladyjacket. Never doubted he was out though, he's my prime suspect for the you-know-what. Al, the guy in the right is a fan who wanted to take a pic I assume.

 I second that.

. The exchange with Jon where he's all "let's work together and you can hate me afterwards, because that is the risk of being a leader" made him quite likable in my eyes too. Besides, there's no one else!

Ugh that would be so predictable and cliché if they use Aliser for that moment.

I'm going to half agree with Al in that it shouldn't be Thorne because Thorne is too much of an antagonistic character and that would kind of ruin the neutrality of the moment.
