JOHN WICK Writer Derek Kolstad Tapped To Develop Live-Action DUNGEONS & DRAGONS Series

It looks like Hasbro and eOne are doubling down on Dungeons & Dragons, as in addition to a live-action film starring Chris Pine, they're also in the early stages of developing a live-action TV series.

The Hollywood Reporter has learned that Paramount & Hasbro-backed eOne have enlisted Derek Kolstad (John Wick; The Falcon and the Winter Soldier) to write and develop a live-action Dungeons & Dragons television series

The studio is currently working on a variety of other projects with multiple different writers which are also set in the larger D&D universe, including a live-action Dungeons & Dragons movie, which is expected to begin production at the tail-end of this year and will star Primetime Emmy-nominee Chris Pine (Star Trek Beyond; Wonder Woman) in the lead role. 

While plot details are anyone's guess, the Dungeons & Dragons roleplaying game is about storytelling in worlds of sword and sorcery. It shares elements with childhood games of make-believe. Like those games, D&D is driven by imagination. It’s about picturing the towering castle beneath the stormy night sky and imagining how a fantasy adventurer might react to the challenges that scene presents.

Kolstad is, of course, best known as the mastermind behind the John Wick franchise and also wrote the upcoming action crime drama Nobody starring 3x Golden Globe-nominee Bob Odenkirk (Better Call Saul; Breaking Bad). He's also one of the writers behind Marvel's The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, and is in the process of developing the John Wick spinoff series The Continental as well as a Hitman show.
