Meanwhile, Entertainment Weekly is reporting that Miguel Sapochnik will direct two or three episodes of Game of Thrones' six-episode final season, potentially suggesting that those are the action-heavy episodes that will depict the big climatic battle of the series. Adding to that, series co-runners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss plan to direct episodes this season too, making the short list even shorter.
And then there's Benioff and Weiss, who THR reports will likely be helming the Game ofThrones series finale. He was the visionary behind episodes like the infamous Red Wedding episode "The Rains of Castamere", as well as the finales for Season 3 and Season 5.
Sapochnik made his Game of Thrones debut with the Season 5 episode "The Gift", followed by the now-iconic "Hardhome", also from the fifth season.
According to Variety, HBO Is expected to up the cost of Game of Thrones production, setting aside $15 million for each episode of the fantasy mega-hit's final episode on the network.
The longest one so far was the final episode of the seventh series, The Dragon and the Wolf, which was almost 80 minutes.
HBO is now in pre-production for the final season of Game of Thrones.
But if you want even more of the world of Westeros, then make plans to attend the Game of Thrones Live Concert Experience on September 8, 2018, at the SAP Center in San Jose. While the two have been prolific writers for the show, they've only directed two episodes in the past: season three's "Walk of Punishment" (where Jaime is disfigured) and the season four premiere "Two Swords".
Benioff and Weiss' lack of reps behind the camera shouldn't be a concern.
No matter which episodes are given to which director, fans can sleep easy knowing the final installment of this beloved series is in extremely capable hands. In addition, drama series tend to get more expensive as cast and crew members' salaries increase with each contract negotiation.
The return of Sapochnik is significant because there will be many more massive battles in the six remaining episodes on the show.
With only six episodes to go and an undead horde (plus one ice-dragon) marching their way south, it's certain that Game of Thrones is calling in Sapochnik to deliver at least one balls-to-the-wall battle.
