David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, the creators of “Game of Thrones” are slated to create a new “Star Wars” movie series.
The two are expected to write and produce the series, which will be separate from the main saga. A timeline has not been given for when the new movies will be produced.
“In the summer of 1977 we traveled to a galaxy far, far away, and we’ve been dreaming of it ever since,” Benioff and Weiss said in a joint statement. “We 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.”
