A new interview with David Benioff and Dan Weiss from the TCA press tour has been posted over at AdWeek. In it, David & Dan reveal that they were initially sent these books to do as feature films. Upon reading them, they quickly realized doing so would be impossible and “an act of vandalism” so they decided to pursue HBO. In the interview, they also talk about the overall theme of the story and try to shut down a “gate” before it even begins.
