Game of Thrones writer-producer duo David Beniof and DB Weiss are rumoured to take on another project in a galaxy far, far away.
According to US Entertainment site TVLine, the pair's plans to work on new HBO series Confederate has been put on hold, so they can work on a Star Wars trilogy instead.
Apparently HBO programming chief Casey Bloy said:
“Dan and David are finishing up the final season [of Game of Thrones] and then they are going to go into the Star Wars universe. When they come out of that, I assume they will come back to us.
“It’s hard to say to someone, ‘You can’t go do Star Wars. They love it. It’s a childhood dream. They’ll go do that, remember why they love television and come back.”
Bloy said the deal included three films, but no further details have been revealed.
