Earlier this February it was reported that Game of Thrones creators, David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, were confirmed to work on some upcoming Star Wars projects. Outside of the announcement no further details were revealed at the time. Today it has been reported that they will be working on the next Star Wars film that is set to release in 2022.
Disney’s CEO, Bob Iger had this to say about their involvement on the project.
“We’re hard at work already, but we felt three years was the proper amount of time to not only take a breather and reset, but to gear up for the next film’s release,” Iger said. “We did a deal with David Benioff and Dan Weiss, who are famous for ‘Game of Thrones’ and the next movie that we release will be theirs, and we’re not saying anything more about that.”
The film will be the first of the “new trilogy” that was announced within Disney’s newly revealed release schedule.
No other details are confirmed at this time so stay tuned for updates.
