Warner Bros has acquired the rights to film a Dungeons and Dragons movie reboot.

Wrath of the Titans writer David Leslie Johnson has signed on to work on the script, according to Deadline.

The studio is reported to be "quite far along" in the project, adapting a script that was originally based on Gary Gygax's D&D precursor Chainmail.

A 2000 Dungeons and Dragons film starring Thora Birch, Jeremy Irons and Justin Whalin was a critical and commercial flop.

It nevertheless went on to spawn two straight-to-dvd sequels - 2005's Wrath of the Dragon God and 2012's The Book of Vile Darkness.

The 2000 film's director Courtney Solomon will produce with The Lego Movie's Roy Lee. »
