HBO reveals Game of Thrones Season Five directors
HBO has revealed who has been chosen to direct the upcoming Game of Thrones’ season, and there are more new-names on the list than returning favorites. If you enjoyed Neil Marshall’s epic moments on television including the battle at “Blackwater” or the latest Season Four events of “Watchers on the Wall,” then you might be disheartened to hear that he won’t be coming back.
Also not returning is Michelle MacLaren or Alan Taylor, who between the two of them put together ten-episodes of the popular series to-date.
With more Emmy nominations than any other series, we do know that HBO has been on a hot-streak when choosing directors, so we are putting our faith in the network’s decision that these new-names will rise to the challenge of recreating an even more dramatic and surprising Westeros.
The one returning director is David Nutter, he is responsible for four-episodes of the popular series so far, and he will be joined by the following directors next season.
Here’s the list:
Episodes 501 and 502: Michael Slovis (episodes of AMC’s Breaking Bad and NBC’s Law & Order: SVU)
Episodes 503 and 504: Mark Mylod (episodes of Showtime’s Shameless and HBO’s Entourage)
Episodes 505 and 506: Jeremy Podeswa (episodes of HBO’s Boardwalk Empire and Showtime’s The Tudors)
Episodes 507 and 508: Miguel Sapochnik (episodes of Fox’s House and Fringe)
Episodes 509 and 510: David Nutter
