Game of Thrones to Shoot in Iceland in November

By Iceland Review

The crew of the popular U.S. television series Game of Thrones is expected to come to Iceland for filming in November, as they did last year. This time the scenes for the series will mostly be shot around Lake Mývatn in Northeast Iceland.

In November 2011, shooting mostly took place by Svínafellsjökull glacier in Southeast Iceland. However, as snowfall is more likely in the north, the crew decided on a different location this year, reports.

Filming is scheduled between November 12 or 13 and November 27 or 28 and up to 70 Icelanders will be cast as extras. More than 200 people will work on the project.

Another large film crew is expected to come to Iceland later this month for the shooting of Thor 2. They will stay here for one week and almost 400 people will be involved in the project.
