Seis estudios se encontraban batallando para el acuerdo con el duo de escritores y productores de #GameOfThrones hasta que en fin #Netflix obtuvo el mismo. 👀 Hasta ahora no hay detalles de los posibles contenidos que pudieran llevar #Benioff y #Weiss al servicio de transmisión en línea, solo que el acuerdo incluye películas y series y ronda por los 200 millones de dólares. 🤯 No sé si soy yo, pero estos dos como que le están diciendo que sí a muchas cosas, están escribiendo la próxima trilogía de #StarWars y ahora esto, mejor si se concentran en un proyecto antes de pasar al otro. Sin contar que están de ambos lados de la guerra, #Disney y ahora Netflix. 🙂 Esperemos se inventen algo interesante. ⚪️ #SeventhArt #SeventhArtStudio

“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,” added the GoT masterminds.
