Game of Thrones - Season 4 - Filming Begins Today

Filming on Season 4 of Game of Thrones begins today so I thought I would do a short production news update.

This year in addition to their central hub in Belfast the Game of Thrones film crews will be heading to Dubrovnik, Croatia and Iceland once again. However this time around instead of waiting until Winter to film they will be filming over the Summer in Iceland. Also they will be adding a new Croatia location in or around the town of Split.

The CEO of Pegasus, Snorri Þórisson, commented that GOT will be returning to Iceland in late July this year. He did not give any specific locations, but said they will be filming in the south of the country. He noted that the level of production will be similar to the previous two years with about 100-200 people involved and he made one other interesting comment. He added that they put out a casting call for 20 bald extras.

Many people speculate that they will film Iron Islands scenes this time around. The rocky shores seem to be the perfect location for filming the Kingsmoot. One suspicion is they will film in Þingvellir, Iceland where real moots were held more than 1000 years ago.

According to information from an Embassy Films casting notice filming in Dubrovnik will take place between August 20 and September 20 and then move to the new location of Split from September 20 until October 10.

The Dubrovnik Herald released a few more details on the new locations naming the cellars of Diocletian’s Palace and Klis Fortress. The article also reports that there may be additional shooting for a “desert scene” at an “abandoned quarry near Žrnovnica and the surrounding waters in the area.

Cellars of Diocletian's Palace:

Klis Fortress:

Quarry near Žrnovnica:

A lot of interesting locations that could be various regions and locations in the books. My best guess for some of the book locations being filmed would be The Fingers or new areas of The Eyrie, the cellars could be tunnels under Kings Landing or perhaps under Meereen, Klis Fortress does remind me of Meereen somewhat. Although I think it would make a good Dreadfort too. Of course they could be using the new Split locations for new areas of Kings Landing if they are running out of exterior shoot locations in Dubrovnik. The desert scene is particularly interesting. Could it be a Dornish party leaving or arriving, maybe Dany outside of Meereen, or even a dual between a snake and a dog? Others have speculated some of the locations could be Dorne or even Braavos.

What are your opinions of the new locations and what locations they may represent from the books?

About The SpoilerTV Daily Newsreel

Every day 100's of items are submitted to us and we don't always have the time to make separate posts for the news and/or there is so much that it would quickly push all other items off the homepage.

So a result we've come up with the idea of the Newsreel, which will feature smaller shows and news items as they happen.

There will be a new Newsreel each day, and as news is added we will update the post and and push it back to the top of the site so that you can see that new items have been added. A tweet of the item will also be sent to our @SpoilerTV account.

New Items will be listed at the top of the article.

This will allow us to provide more news on more shows in a much more timely fashion
About Movie News Roundup

Rather that creating lots of new posts as new info is released and fragmenting the commentary, we thought it would be a good idea for the upcoming major movies to create a single post for each major movies that will collate all the info as it's posted.

New items will be added to the top of the list as well as the post being re-posted back to the top of the homepage when a new item is added. We will additionally send out a fresh tweet alerting you of the new information.
