'Game of Thrones' Creators No Longer Attached to 'Star Wars' Trilogy

By

First, they dropped out of a Comic-Con panel to avoid facing angry fans. Now, Game of Thrones showrunners D.B. Weiss and David Benioff are leaving an entire trilogy of Star Wars movies they were supposed to be helming because they are apparently too busy. 

But just days ago, the two participated in a panel at the Austin Film Festival in which they pretty much admitted to having no idea what they were doing when they made Game of Thrones, enraging fans and industry pros alike. That, coupled with the complete disaster that was the original Game of Thrones pilot has led many to believe they were actually fired from the Star Wars project.
