The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed what fans have been speculating for weeks. HBO’s new fantasy series, helmed by Dan Weiss and David Benioff, has signed Brian Kirk to direct two of the season’s nine episodes. Kirk has previously directed episodes of Showtime’s Dexter and The Tudors. Kirk is also from Northern Ireland, where much of ‘Game of Thrones’ will be filmed.
Production on Thrones was originally slated to start at the end of this month but has been delayed until July 26th.
