The directors for the final six episodes of Games of Thrones have been revealed by US TV network, HBO.

Miguel Sapochnik, David Nutter and creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss are the four names unveiled.

The Hollywood Reporter says Benioff and Weiss will direct the final ever episode of the show.

David Benioff directed Walk of Punishment from season three, while D.B. Weiss was in charge of Two Swords from season four.

The pair have also written the majority of the 67 episodes broadcast so far.

Miguel Sapochnik has been in charge of some of the most epic scenes from the show, including the season six double finale of Battle of the Bastards and The Winds of Winter as well as season five's Hardhome.

David Nutter was behind the camera for The Rains of Castamere, which was season three's unforgettable Red Wedding episode, as well as The Dance of Dragons and Mother's Mercy - the final two episodes in season five.

Variety is also reporting that HBO is increasing the budget for the final six episodes of Game of Thrones.

That means each instalment will cost an estimate $15m (£11m).

Netflix spent around $10m (£7.4m) on The Crown and The Get Down.

The budget may be higher because producers will have to include dragons, giants, the dead and even direwolves.

It's also reported that all six episodes in the final season will be feature-length.

The longest one so far was the final episode of the seventh series, The Dragon and the Wolf, which was nearly 80 minutes.

Game of Thrones isn't set to return until at least the end of 2018 or the beginning of 2019.
