David Benioff and DB Weiss, the duo of creators of Game of Thrones, reached a millionaire agreement with Netflix, after receiving proposals from various streaming services and movie studios.
Thus, as the Shonda Rhimes and Ryan Murphy, the duo will develop new exclusive projects for streaming that can be films or series.
According to Deadline, the deal may have reached $ 300 million.
Benioff and Weiss will also work with LucasFilm to develop a series of films Star Wars, when the new trilogy ends, and in parallel with the projects of Rian Johnson.
Netflix with these signings is increasingly preparing for another stage in the streaming war where its hegemony is increasingly weakened by several factors. First, by competing with other services such as Prime Video which comes with a catalog of more premium productions, and also the loss of the rights of some titles to Disney, which created its own service, Disney + and will naturally take the productions with it, to the WarnerMedia with HBOMax, and with HBO as a strong competitor in closed TV, and yet another entertainment giant, Comcast which also comes with its own streaming service for Universal Pictures productions.
