The cases of Benioff and Weiss were nine digits, according to Deadline, which made headlines for the first time, such as the alleged Netflix agreements with other big names like Shonda Rhimes, Ryan Murphy and Kenya Barris. The agreement with Netflix marks the end of a contest between six studios (including WarnerMedia, Disney, Comcast, Amazon and Apple) to attract producers after the conclusion of Game of Thrones in May. According to THR, the company could grow to $ 200 million and Netflix's main competitor was Apple.
"We have had an excellent experience with HBO for more than ten years and we are grateful to everyone for always feeling at home," Benioff and Weiss said in a statement to IGN. "For the past few months, we have been talking with Cindy Holland and Peter Friedlander, Ted Sarandos and Scott Stuber for many hours, we have remembered the same images from the same movies of the 80s, we like the same books, we expect the same opportunities, Netflix He has created something incredible and unique, and we are honored to have been invited to join them. "
"We are delighted to welcome Netflix to David Benioff and Dan Weiss, lead narrator," Sarandos said in a statement. "They are a creative force and captivate audiences around the world with their epic history, and we hope to see what your imagination will bring to our members."
It is unclear whether the agreement with Netflix will affect the timing of Benioff and Weiss' work in the next Star Wars trilogy after the launch of The Rise of Skywalker later this year. The Rian Johnson trilogy is not yet scheduled. Benioff and Weiss also write a universal film about the life of Kurt Cobain and should adapt Stephen Hunter's Dirty White Boys novel for Fox / Disney.
Benioff and Weiss canceled their participation in Comic Con in San Diego last month after the end of the last season of AF063BPU Game of Thrones.
