Game of Thrones has now passed the series of books it is based on, A Song of Ice and Fire, in terms of storyline, and naturally, many of us have a lot of questions about what is going to happen. Now, the author of the books, George R. R. Martin, isn’t really keen on answering the fan questions, but the showrunners of Game of Thrones, executive producers David Benioff and Dan Weiss, aren’t as bad. They’re now scheduled to speak at the South by Southwest Festival (SXSW)!
The South by Southwest Festival (SXSW), scheduled to be held in Austin in March, is a big event which brings together various fields like tech, film, television, journalism, business, literature, and more. It started in 1987, and this year’s speaker list includes the executive producers of Game of Thrones, David Benioff and Dan Weiss. The press release read :
“David Benioff and D.B. Weiss (Entertainment Influencers) – David Benioff works as an author and screenwriter. D.B. Weiss is a writer and the author of Lucky Wander Boy. Both Benioff and Weiss co-creators and executive producers of the Emmy Award-winning Game of Thrones for HBO.”
The conference will be held from March 10-19, and considering how the filming should be finished by then, we might get to see some interesting material floating around. The pair could use this opportunity to reveal an exact release date, or some footage from Season 7 maybe? It would be a ripe time to drop a trailer, definitely. We will just have to wait and watch.
Either way, they will be getting a lot of audience questions at the event. We hope some of our own are answered by proxy.
