The creators of "Game of Thrones" are taking on a new project in a galaxy far, far away.
Lucasfilm announced yesterday that David Benioff and D.B. Weiss will write and produce a new series of "Star Wars" films. The series will be separate from the previously announced Rian Johnson trilogy and the Skywalker saga.
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." Filming of the show's eighth and final season will reportedly begin in August, with the season set to air sometime next year.
