'Game of Thrones' Season 8: Directors Revealed for the Final Season

'Game of Thrones' Season 8: Directors Revealed for the Final Season”

Weiss will be directing the final episodes of Game of Thrones.

Though fans pretend to watch Game of Thrones for the detailed ancestry, fantasy motifs and forbidden romances, we all know deep down that watching someone have their head brutally lopped off is the real draw of the show.

According to a post in The Hollywood Reporter, Miguel Sapochnik and David Nutter will be joining showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss in directing the final six episodes of Game of Thrones.

After seven seasons of twists, turns, dragons, and zombies, the final six episodes of Game of Thrones are on the horizon. In fact, three of the five highest rated Game of Thrones episodes on IMDB were from by Sapochnik, the battle director who boasts "The Battle Of The Bastards", "The Winds of Winter" and "Hardhome" from the top five.

While you're here.Why not hit play on the video below to let funnyman Fred Cooke woo you with his sexy French accent, Dara Dynamite ditches the Speedos to become a Kingsman, Mayo band Flat Out put the woe of the All-Ireland Final behind them to perform the Magic Cover and Justine Stafford takes to the streets to find a date for the Debs. The duo have only directed one episode of the series, Season 4's opener "Two Swords" (which was credited to Weiss per DGA rules stating no co-directing credits), but they are a constant on-set presence as they write all of the scripts before filming begins, so it's not like they're new to this.

The names will be familiar to fans of the series, and encouraging as well, with these directors having presided over some of the most dramatically important episodes of the series so far.

But neither of those guys will direct the series finale. The decision continues a tradition of creators of acclaimed serialized cable dramas helming their own finales - such as David Chase for The Sopranos, Vince Gilligan for Breaking Bad, and Matthew Weiner for Mad Men. He's only directed four episodes of the show, and three of them have been among its best.
