Game of Thrones creators’ Star Wars gig likely renders Confederate as “unlikely to see the light of day any time soon if ever”
Although there’s no official word that the controversial slavery drama from David Benioff and D.B. Weiss has been shelved, Nellie Andreeva notes that their Star Wars gig “immediately raised serious doubts about the fate of Confederate, which was supposed to be their follow-up project to GOT, with production set to ‘begin following the final season of Game Of Thrones.’” Star Wars will likely tie up Benioff and Weiss for years, making them unavailable to work on Confederate.
