Along with some new casting news, we also are getting some info on who will be behind the camera for season two of Game of Thrones. The Hollywood Reporter has the scoop on the director line-up for this season.
The Descent writer-director Neil Marshall will direct an episode during Season 2 of HBO’s epic period drama. The episode will mark his TV directing debut.
Marshall, whose credits include features Doomsday and Centurion, joins Alan Taylor, Alik Sakharov, David Petrarca and David Nutter as directors for the upcoming season.
Winter Is Coming: Not surprised to see the HBO vets, David Nutter and David Petrarca, in there. A bit surprised that Sakharov will be moving from cinematographer to director for season two. Will he still work as cinematographer as well, I wonder? I’lll have to look back now and see what episodes he worked on for season one and how well they were shot. As for Marshall, his credits aren’t blowing me away or anything, but I guess it is cool to get a
Hollywood feature film director in there.
UPDATE: George R. R. Martin has a blog post reacting to the Neil Marshall news, apparently he’s a big fan, and he confirms that Marshall will be directing his episode, “Blackwater.” Yeah, he’s pretty stoked.
