It has moved down the development pipeline and casting is in full flow. We now know that *Game Of Thrones* veteran [Richard Dormer](https://www.empireonline.com/people/richard-dormer/) will lead the cast as Ankh-Morpork City Watch commander Sam Vimes, with Adam Hugill, Jo Eaton-Kent, Marama Corlette, Lara Rossi and Sam Adewunmi also in the ensemble for _The Watch_.","Eaton-Kent will be dwarfish forensic alchemist Sergeant Cheery, Hugill's playing idealistic new recruit Constable Carrot, while Corlette is on as the mysterious Corporal Angua, tasked with Carrot’s training. Rossi is the formidable Lady Sybil Ramkin, last scion of Ankh-Morpork’s nobility (and Vimes' wife), while Adewunmi is the wronged Carcer Dun, who is out to take control of the city.","\"I’m so thrilled to be part of this brilliant madness and mayhem,\" Dormer said. \"I was immediately drawn to the multitude of layers to Sam Vimes, and I find the dynamic between him and his band of disenfranchised comrades very compelling.\"","Simon Allen is the head writer for the show, with [Craig Viveiros](https://www.empireonline.com/people/craig-viveiros/) in the director's chair.
