The creators of the widely followed TV series Game of Thrones, David Benioff and D. B. Weiss, are set to produce another TV show based on renowed franchise “Star Wars”.
Benioff and Weiss are set to write and produce a series of Star Wars
Stars Wars fans would borrow no worries about authenticity and continuity, since the new films will exist separately from the Skywalker saga and the new Rian Johnson trilogy currently in development.
Benioff and Weiss said in a joint statement that they “are honored by the opportunity, a little terrified by the responsibility, and so excited to get started as soon as the final season of Game of Thrones is complete.”
HBO’s controversial Benioff and Weiss project “Confederate” was
previously touted as their immediate follow-up to Thrones, so it very well could be back-burnered or, given the deluge of hate against its premise, scrapped.
