Warner Brothers has acquired the film rights to the immensely popular role playing game, Dungeons & Dragons.

They already have a script from Wrath Of The Titans and Red Riding Hood’s David Leslie Johnson, which was entitled Chainmail and based on a game that preceded D&D, also created by Gary Gygax, before he teamed with Dave Arneson to make the billion dollar game that is Dungeons & Dragons. It will be changed to suit D&D.

The studio is making the franchise a priority, and is searching for directors to bring the project to a new direction. Roy Lee and Courtney Solomon are producing the movie. Obviously, D&D has gone the film route before, but the less said about the 2000 film, and its two direct to DVD follow ups, the better. »
