‘Game of Thrones’ Season 5 Scouting Spain Locations to Shoot
HBO’s ‘Game of Thrones‘ took a brief hiatus this past Sunday to accommodate Memorial Day festivity, launching headway through June for the final three installments of season 4, but production is already gearing up for season 5. New reports suggest ‘Game of Thrones’ will add Spain to its diverse roster of shooting locations, but to stand in as which fictional Westeros location?
Entertainment Weekly reveals that HBO’s ‘Game of Thrones’ has begun scouting locations in the Andalucia region Spain, entering “deep” in talks with a local film commission to shoot at least a portion of season 5 for 2015. It remains to be seen exactly what land (or kingdom) Spain might stand in for, but good guesses might be the lands we’ve seen less of, but have been explored a bit in George R.R. Martin‘s books, such as Dorne and Braavos.
Briefly shooting in Los Angeles last season for “The Bear and the Maiden Fair,” ‘Game of Thrones’ also shoots in a grand total of five other countries, including Belfast, Croatia (Kings’ Landing), Iceland (north of The Wall, Morocco and Malta (Daenerys’ cities)
‘Game of Thrones’ season 4 has continually broken away from the books and advanced several other storylines, making it difficult to project exactly what we might see in season 5, but what say you? Where do you think Spain might stand in for with ‘Game of Thrones’ season 5?
