A fresh attempt to make a hit movie franchise out Dungeons & Dragons is arriving from Warner Bros...
Even the most ardent Dungeons & Dragons fan isn't likely to have sat through the 2000 movie starring Jeremy Irons and concluded that it was a keeper. At a point when Lord Of The Rings and Harry Potter were firing fantasy cinema to box office and critical gold, Dungeons & Dragons endured a critical slaughtering and a box office return of $33m worldwide. The direct to DVD film that followed did not really improve matters.
However, it's now been revealed that Warner Bros is readying another attempt to bring Dungeons & Dragons to the big screen, in no way influenced by the fact that The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey overcame middling to good reviews to earn $1bn at the global box office.
This time, the screenplay for the movie has been penned by David Leslie Johnson. »
