HBO has had enough with the hacks and leaks that the company is willing to spend millions of dollars filming different endings to the series finale of ‘Game of Thrones.’
“I know in ‘Game of Thrones,’ the ending, they’re going to shoot multiple versions so that nobody really know what happens. You have to do that on a long show. Because when you’re shooting something, people know. So they’re going to shoot multiple versions so that there’s no real definitive answer until the end.” said HBO’s president of programming, Casey Bloys to The Morning Call.
The report also states that not even the actors will know what the correct ending is. HBO spent $100 million for season six, and about the same for season seven with only 7 episodes instead of the previous season’s 10. Since, the show films on location, has a massive crew and cast, is building up to an insane war, this will cost HBO big bucks to keep the final episode a secret. Look for season eight to cost $16 million per episode.
The final season of ‘Game of Thrones’ will be six episodes that begin filming in October with a possibility of a an 11-month shoot. The current production schedule would mean the show will not return till 2019. HBO has yet to make an official announcement.
