'Game Of Thrones' Producers Have Found A Genius Way To Stop Story Leaks

'Game Of Thrones' Producers Have Found A Genius Way To Stop Story Leaks

As Game of Thrones approaches its eighth and final season, fans are desperate to know how it's going to end. There are hundreds of forums and webpages dedicated to fan theories - the more bizarre the better - and, of course, sharing the latest 'leaks'.

A few weeks ago, shortly before season seven wrapped up, HBO was hacked and 1.5 terabytes of data were stolen, including closely guarded GoT scripts. Shortly after announcing the hack, the group, which called itself Mr Smith Group, told Mashable: "Be ready for GoT S& E6 &E7 as soon as possible."

Now, the show's producers have come up with a genius plan to make sure the ending stays secret until the finale airs - they're filming multiple endings, so even cast and crew won't know how the story ends.

According to the Morning Call, HBO programming president Casey Bloys gave a talk at Moravian College last week in which he said: "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."

Showrunner Dan Weiss was so secretive he wouldn't even confirm plans were in place for multiple endings, commenting: "We don't even want to tell you because if we do then somebody will figure out how to circumvent the things that we're doing." Good plan.

Other shows, including The Sopranos, filmed multiple endings to ensure spoilers were kept to a minimum, but they were aired at a time when large-scale hacks didn't really happen, so how effective it will be remains to be seen.


Let's hope it works. I'm all for a good fan theory, but I hate show-ruining spoilers.
