HBO’s Game of Thrones will not film in Atlanta, Georgia.
Following the news of that United Kingdom’s film industry is coming to and thanks to Brexit, rumors swirled that HBO’s hit TV series Game of Thrones was going to film in Georgia. Unfortunately for aspiring Atlanta actors and crew members, HBO reveals they will not be moving from the UK to film the final two seasons of GOT.
“We do not anticipate that the result of the EU Referendum will have any material effect on HBO producing ‘Game of Thrones’,” the network said in a statement. In fact, the show, now in its sixth season, continues to recieve government funding form the UK, including from Northern Ireland Screen, which provides government financial aid to local businesses.
Rumors started after Thursday’s vote that the $10 million per episode series would lose EU funding, but the Northern Ireland Screen said it does not use European Union money to find the series.
