David Benioff and DB Weiss, the two creators of Game of Thrones, will change course for their next television project: they will work for Netflix on the adaptation of a literary science fiction saga.
If George RR Martin validated the very controversial decisions concerning the shortening of the seasons of Game of Thrones or the behavior of Daenerys, the fact remains that David Benioff and DB Weiss, the authors of these decisions – and co-creators of the series – are still often attacked for having taken them! Hopefully these grievances will be faded with their new TV project. The duo is indeed developing a science fiction series adapted from the Chinese literary saga: The Three Body Problem. A saga taking place over several generations and various planets since it tells the story of humanity’s first encounter in the 60s with an extraterrestrial civilization.
A pharaonic project reminiscent of that of Game Of Thrones with its many characters and its various filming locations which required rigorous logistics. Netflix will be the broadcaster of this unprecedented and expensive series – arguably one of the most expensive of the streaming platform – which will focus on the entire trilogy: The Three Body Problem, The Dark Forest and Immortal Death. At the helm of this ambitious program, Benioff and DB Weiss therefore but also Brad Pitt via his Plan B production house. No shooting date has yet been announced but given the difficulty of the project, there is no doubt that it will take several years before the first episode is discovered!
