Deadline is reporting that Warner Bros. has acquired the rights to make a movie about the popular role-playing fantasy game, Dungeons & Dragons. Come find out who penned the script for WB.
According to Deadline, Warner Bros. has gotten ahold of the movie rights for Dungeons & Dragons.
The studio is actually quite far along in the development of the project, as it will use a script by Wrath Of The Titans and Red Riding Hood scribe and Frank Darabont protege David Leslie Johnson.
The film will be produced by Roy Lee ("The Lego Movie") and Courtney Solomon. Courtney, should be familiar to D&D fans, as Courtney was the director of a previous D&D film, that starred Jeremy Irons. Wait, Jeremy Irons was in a Dungeons & Dragons film? My how the mighty have fallen.
For WB, the plan to make every effort to turn Dungeons & Dragons into their next Harry Potter-like franchise. With the popularity of other fantasy films and shows, like HBO Game Of Thrones it's not hard to see why WB feels this is the time to tap into the genre.
