Stephen: Game of Thrones creators to helm Star Wars movie
There was finally some positive news for Game of Thrones showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss this week: They will be making the next Star Wars movie. As Gizmodo reports–while much of the internet was busy trashing the duo over their latest GOT choices–Disney chairman Bob Iger announced Tuesday that Benioff and Weiss will be writing and producing a Star Wars movie set for 2022. Iger told the audience at MoffettNathanson Media & Communications Summit, “We did a deal with David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, who are famous for Game of Thrones, and the next movie we release will be theirs. And we’re not saying anything more about that.” Theirs will be the next film after this December’s Star Wars: The Rise of the Skywalker.
