Game of Thrones creators David Benioff and Dan Weiss are preparing to leave HBO for their upcoming projects, reaching a serious fan base for all seasons. According to media reports, the duo’s next address will be Netflix, Amazon or Disney’s digital platform, which will soon be available. However, the situation is not clear at this time.
In recent weeks, the Hollywood Reporter said the two were close to signing with Amazon, but Netflix had taken its place in the competition with a very attractive offer. Disney, on the other hand, approached the duo with a film and series projects that will be broadcast on Fox television. Because let’s remind you that Benioff and Weiss are working with Disney for the new Star Wars trilogy. That seems to make the Disney possibility a little stronger.
Sources said the two were seeking a $200m deal. Benioff and Weiss plan to surpass the deal made by Lisa Joy and Jonah Nolan, the creators of Westworld, which signed with Amazon for $150 million. The two will agree to the new company with the money they want to start their own production companies.
Although disappointing in the final season of Game of Thrones, it was a record for 32 Emmy awards awards ceremonies, and the first film in the new Star Wars trilogy, written by the duo, will be released on December 16, 2022.
