List Rules Vote up the best TV Shows and Movies written by David Benioff.

Most likely best known for co-creating and writing Game of Thrones, David Benioff has a long and diverse career as a novelist, screenwriter, and television writer. Although, his filmography is not only comprised of heavily themed dramas as you might expect. Marvel fans might even be a bit surprised to realize he was one of the writers behind X-Men Origins: Wolverine. His writing credits also include "Flowers for Charlie," an episode of the long-running comedic series It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia. But which of these projects is his best?

Maybe 25th Hour will make it to the top of the list as he wrote and adapted the novel the movie is based on. Only time will tell, but with so many David Benioff TV shows and movies to choose from, there is certainly something on this list for everyone.

So, vote up your favorite projects and check back for more David Benioff movies and TV shows as they are released and added to this list.
