Warners can play Dungeons & Dragons again

Warner Bros studio has worked out a deal with rights holders Hasbro and producer Courtney Soloman’s Sweetpea Entertainment to partner on a new film based on the long-running game world.

A few years ago, Warners decided to go ahead and try to conjure up its own take, working with Wrath Of The Titans/Red Riding Hood writer David Leslie Johnson’s script Chainmail – itself based on a more obscure game crafted by Dungeons designer Gary Gygax. They would have him re-work it, so that it can focus on the ideas from the main title before it had locked down rights from Hasbro. That company instead chose to push ahead on a film deal with Universal, and Warners began talking to Solomon and Sweetpea about using their rights instead. Hasbro didn't agree. It seems these days, the studio and the toy giant have made a deal.It allows Warners to work their magic with the movie. 

Warners Bros appear confident, now that it can finally proceed. “We are so excited about bringing the world of Dungeons & Dragons to life on the big screen,” Greg Silverman, Warner Bros. president of creative development and worldwide production said in a statement. “This is far and away the most well-known brand in fantasy, which is the genre that drives the most passionate film followings.  D&D has endless creative possibilities, giving our filmmakers immense opportunities to delight and thrill both fans and moviegoers new to the property.”

I really hope they do it good and make the fans proud, because that is one epic game, that needs an amazing movie.
