New 'Star Wars' on the cards?

Game of Thrones creators David Benioff and Daniel Brett Weiss are set to write and produce a new series of Star Wars films. According to reports, these new films are not to be tied to the ongoing Skywalker saga of the Episodes movies or be connected to the trilogy being developed by film-maker Rian Johnson. "David and Dan are some of the best storytellers working today," said Kathleen Kennedy, president of production house.

It is a major project for both Benioff and Weiss, who have become stars in their own right after the massive success of the fantasy TV series.
