HBO's Game of Thrones concludes its eighth and final season this Sunday, but what will the creators of the D.B. series be? Do Weiss and David Benioff do the next? In addition to a new trilogy of Star Wars films for Disney, Weiss and Benioff are currently in the studio looking for great "overall" offers.
According to Deadline, Weiss and Benioff met as many as six "big media companies" for new general "agreements" that would cover TV, film and streaming projects. Those that are said to be in the mix are HBO, Disney, Comcast, Netflix, Amazon and Apple, according to Deadline.
Obviously, Weiss and Benioff have already partnered with HBO and Disney for Game of Thrones and Star Wars, respectively, in order to influence the negotiations. According to Deadline, the duo are not trying to "rush a decision". Given the great success of Game of Thrones, it certainly seems that Weiss and Benioff certainly have bargaining power.
Overall offers can be very profitable. For example, comedy legend Michael Schur would be paid $ 25 million a year to stay at NBC, while Gray's creator Anatomy, Shonda Rhimes, paid $ 100 million for his overall deal on Netflix.
In addition to the Star Wars series, whose first film is scheduled to premiere in 2022, Weiss and Benioff are working on the controversial HBO Confederate program.
As for Game of Thrones, the final episode airs this Sunday, May 19 on HBO. For more information on the show, you can take a look at the review and summary of GameSpot of episode 5, "The Bells".
