"Game Of Thrones" showrunners find Lovecraft after "Star Wars" rescue

In the wake of "Game of Thrones", the showrunners - David Benioff and DB Weiss - haven't exactly covered themselves in glory. Karyn Kusama, who directed the latter two movies, will also reportedly serve as an executive producer on the Lovecraft project. There doesn't seem to be many details about the project just yet, but Deadline has heard that the film revolves around the horrifying question: "What is H.P. Lovecraft wasn't making it up?"

Partly biography of Lovecraft and partly fantasy, the comic describes the author as having really managed to make contact with evil from within another dimension, thus posing that monsters really exist.

"We've had a handsome run with HBO for more than a decade and we're grateful to everyone there for always making us feel at home", Benioff and Weiss said in a statement to IGN.

There have been several documentaries and movies based on the works or inspired by the life of H.P. Lovecraft.

According to Deadline, Phil Hay and Matt Manfredi will write the script, the same creative team that was responsible for "Aeon Flux" and "Ride Along".

After losing their Star Wars trilogy due to their contract with Netflix, the Game of Thrones creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss have found their next.

However, Weiss and Benioff eventually locked themselves into a nice, juicy Netflix deal - but before that kicks in, they've got "Lovecraft".

It sounds like it's still very early days for the Lovecraft movie from Weiss and Benioff.

News of the Lovecraft feature comes shortly after the in-demand duo announced they were stepping down from their planned series of Star Wars films, as a result of other commitments in their busy schedule.
