A New ‘Dungeons & Dragons’ Movie On The Way…

Warner Bros has acquired the rights to make a movie based on the fantasy role playing game Dungeons & Dragons

.Using a script by the Wrath Of Titans and Red Riding Hood writer, David Leslie Johnson, the project appears to be well into development for the studio. The script, Chainmail, was acquired last year as a free standing project, based on an obscure game that was also created by Dungeons & Dragons designer Gary Gygax before he and Dave Arneson launched Dungeons & Dragons. The script is being retro-fitted to sit with in the bigger game creation. The film is reportedly being produced by The Lego Movie producer Roy Lee and Courtney Solomon, who directed the 2000 Dungeons & Dragons movie, a film that stared Jeremy Irons and unfortunately did not do so well.

In this era of heightened interest in sword and sorcery genre, within Warner Bros with Peter Jacksons’ continuing adaptation of the Hobbit, as well as HBO’s Game Of Thrones, it is certain that the studio will expend the necessary resources to create a world around a well-established brand, which trough book and merchandise has generated well over a $1Billion since it was launched in 1974.
