‘Game of Thrones’ creators set sights on Chinese sci-fi trilogy 

LOS ANGELES: The creators of television’s “Game of Thrones” are to adapt a best-selling Chinese science-fiction book trilogy for a Netflix series.

Netflix said this week that the English-language adaptation will cover all three of the award-winning Chinese novels — “The Three-Body Problem,” “The Dark Forest,” and “Death’s End,” written by Liu Cixin.

“Liu Cixin’s trilogy is the most ambitious science-fiction series we’ve read, taking readers on a journey from the 1960s until the end of time, from life on our pale blue dot to the distant fringes of the universe,” David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, the creators and executive producers of television’s hit medieval fantasy series “Game of Thrones,” said in a statement.
