What’s that sound? Listen. Hear it? Oh yes, it’s your childhood wincing. Standard practice for Hollywood now is their insistence on not leaving any stone unturned. Or any popular culture phenomenon without a reboot. On that note, it’s been confirmed that Warner Bros. have purchased the rights to Dungeons and Dragons in order to kickstart a rebooted film franchise.
David Leslie Johnson, who penned Wrath Of The Titans, is supplying the script. Johnson is to rework another script of his, Chainmail, which itself is based on the 1971 game which predates Dungeons and Dragons. Now that Warner Bros. have bagged the rights to a more profitable franchise, he’s rewriting it as a Dungeons film. He’ll not be out of his genre element either, as he’s previously delivered screenplays for Red Riding Hood, The Walking Dead and Orphan.
