Game of Thrones heads David Benioff and D.B. Weiss have once again managed to give a long-running story a completely piece of shit finale that leaves everyone thinking, “Well, at least that’s over.”
After nearly two years of talk about doing a Star Wars spin-off series, the duo have now reportedly parted ways with the project. The obvious reason would be that someone at Disney finally got around to that Game of Thrones ending, but the official stance is that Benioff and Weiss simply need to dedicate their time to fulfilling their $200 million development deal at Netflix. You’d swear they’d abruptly gone mad with power, destroying their connection to the very world they’d hoped to work toward building. But that would be a fucking stupid character arc.
