The ‘Game of Thrones’ guys are taking over ‘Star Wars,’ so everyone can calm down now about ‘Confederate’ (because it’s never going to happen)

David Benioff and D.B. Weiss are going to produce the next series of Star Wars movies, making geeks heads explode everywhere. We don’t know how many movies they will make, but Disney did make it clear that they would be separate from the Luke Skywalker movies. This is TV news because it essentially gives them an out from actually having to make the ill-received Confederate series for HBO that nobody wanted anymore. Everyone can just walk away, and never speak of it again.

Benioff and Weiss are still working on Game of Thrones though, which began shooting in Dubrovnik which stands in for King’s Landing. And a particular actor has been spotted there. Do not click that last clicky unless you want to be spoiled!

Robert Kirkman assures us that Fear the Walking Dead will be a “much different show.” He also shot down any hope of a crossover, so put those theories away.

On second thought, Chris Carter might do an X-Files without Scully if it came to it.
