Netflix Signs Deal With Game Of Thrones Creators For A Exclusive Movie & Show

-

HBO’s Game of Thrones was the greatest, biggest, most badass and most famous TV show of the decade. And the writers that propelled the show into a household name have just signed a multi-year deal with Netflix.

The Deal Is Worth More Than You Think

It looks like Netflix wants to be the best and will stop at nothing. And that includes fighting out a bidding war to poach two of HBO’s best writers. After a long bidding war, Netflix beat out Amazon and Disney to sign the Game of Thrones creators David Benioff and Dan Weiss.

The deal, according to Netflix’s statement, includes a multi-year film and a TV series. While there’s still no official confirmation as to the amount, Deadline Hollywood reports that the writers were paid a nine figures sum to leave HBO and work exclusively for Netflix (except the ongoing Star Wars deal they have). The Hollywood Reporter also reported that the deal stands at $200 million.

In a joint emotional statement, David Benioff and Dan Weiss wrote, “We’ve had a beautiful run with HBO for more than a decade and we’re grateful to everyone there for always making us feel at home.”

They also talked about how the deal came to be and why Netflix inspires them. “Over the past few months we’ve spent many hours talking to Cindy Holland and Peter Friedlander, as well as Ted Sarandos and Scott Stuber. We remember the same shots from the same ’80s movies; we love the same books; we’re excited about the same storytelling possibilities. Netflix has built something astounding and unprecedented, and we’re honored they invited us to join them,” they concluded.

While fans are still processing that Game Of Thrones is over, these two are totally ready to start a new chapter of their lives.
