Tom McCarthy (The Visitor) will direct HBO’s fantasy pilot Game of Thrones, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The assignment will reteam McCarthy with Peter Dinklage, who starred in McCarthy’s first feature, The Station Agent. Based on George R.R. Martin’s best-selling Songs of Fire and Ice novels, Thrones is described as an epic struggle for power set in a vast and violent fantasy kingdom.
