David Benioff and DB Weiss, showrunners for Game of Thrones, are taking charge of a Star Wars project in the future after Game of Thrones concludes, and now a new report from Star Wars News Network claims that a contact who has worked on every Disney Star Wars film has revealed some insider information.

According to them, Benioff and Weiss' film could potentially start filming this autumn, the first in the series for the pair. The source apparently claims to be "95% confident this is accurate" and says that the project "is not the Rian Johnson trilogy, it is the Game of Thrones guys' first movie, and it is set during the Old Republic, as Disney wants to open up the Star Wars timeline and appeal to a more 'Game of Thrones' style audience."

"So the timeline is hundreds of years prior to the Skywalkers, so think almost Star Wars meets Lord of the Rings," they add. "Filming starts in the Fall and art departments are in design phases now as the script is being finalised. That is all I know but I am 95% confident that this is accurate."

Of course this is just one source and isn't confirmed at all, so take it all with a hefty pinch of salt for now.

Would you like this rumour to be true though?
