'Game of Thrones' creators back out of 'Star Wars'

Posted online

"Game of Thrones" creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss have walked away from a deal to create the next "Star Wars" trilogy.

Benioff and Weiss instead plan to focus on upcoming projects that are part of a $200 million deal with Netflix.

"We love 'Star Wars,'" Benioff and Weiss said in a statement. "When George Lucas built it, he built us, too. Getting to talk about 'Star Wars' with him and the current 'Star Wars' team was the thrill of a lifetime, and we will always be indebted to the saga that changed everything. But there are only so many hours in the day, and we felt we could not do justice to both 'Star Wars' and our Netflix projects. So we are regretfully stepping away."
