It’s not the first time the role playing game has taken to the big screen, although a 2000 movie starring Jeremy Irons bombed terribly. After that it got trapped in legal limbo while there was a fight over the film rights, but now that’s been sorted Warner Bros. has been keen to get a big budget fantasy based on the franchise going.
Not too much is known about the specifics of the movie, but Deadline adds, ‘Dungeons And Dragons is a fantasy adventure centering on a warrior and his band of mystical creatures as they embark on a dangerous journey to find a mythical treasure. It’s known that Vin Diesel has also expressed interest in being part of the film as he has been a fan of and played the game for more than 20 years.’
Rob Letterman (Monsters Vs. Aliens) is set to direct.
