McKay is also currently tied to the Nightwing movie currently in development.

Nightwing Movie May Get Delayed for 5 Years or More

Last week, it was reported that Nightwing and The Lego Batman Movie director Chris McKay had entered talks to direct Dungeons & Dragons for Paramount, which the studio has already issued a July 23, 2021 release date for. While that news was certainly exciting for D&D fans, it also got DC fans wondering about the status of Nightwing, since Dungeons & Dragons will most likely be his next project, meaning, with the three years he'll spend on Dungeons & Dragons, and likely an additional two years to make Nightwing, it could be five years until we see Nightwing in theaters, although no production plans have yet to be confirmed for either movie. When one fan suggested that Chris McKay might be leaving Nightwing on Twitter, though, the director responded, making it clear that he's still attached to direct Nightwing.

"I'm pretty sure WB are going to have to fire me if they want me to leave Nightwing.

Nightwing director reaffirms his commitment to the Dick Grayson solo movie

Almost a year ago to the day, it was announced that The Lego Batman helmer Chris McKay would be bringing Dick Grayson to the DC Extended Universe with a live-action Nightwing movie.

McKay has provided fans with regular social media updates about his plans for the former Boy Wonder, but the movie was one of several Dceu titles absent from Warner Bros.’ subsequent DC movie slate announcements, and with the filmmaker signing on last week to direct a new Dungeons & Dragons movie, questions have been raised about the status of the Nightwing movie.

Well, McKay has now moved to reassure fans that he remains committed to the project, with the directing sharing the following update on Twitter:

I’m pretty sure WB are going to have to fire me if they want me to leave Nightwing…..

'Nightwing' Director Touted for 'Dungeons & Dragons'

Director Chris McKay (The Lego Batman Movie; the upcoming Nightwing) is now in negotiations to direct a new version of Dungeons & Dragons, based on the classic role-playing game. The movie will be the first from a new production company that wants to become a rival to Marvel Studios, according to Variety. First published in 1974, the game revolves around characters who embark upon adventures in a fantasy world. Its popularity grew steadily over the years, leading to a television series in the 1980s and finally a film version in 2000 (pictured at top; watch trailer below). That was followed by a sequel for television in 2005 and a third installment that went direct to video in 2012. The new, big-screen version will be written by Michael Gillio. It's been in...

Dungeons and Dragons Remake Wants Nightwing Director
The Dungeons & Dragons movie may have found its director. What started as a tabletop roleplaying game in the 70s is being eyed as a major franchise, with Hasbro and Paramount teaming up to make it happen. With the movie locked in for a 2021 release date, the search for a director is on and now it looks like they have their sights sight on The Lego Batman and Nightwing director Chris McKay. No deal has been closed yet, but the director is currently in negotiations with the studio. Michael Gilio is set to pen the script.

Hasbro and Paramount extended the scope of their partnership late last year and will be teaming to bring more of the toy company's properties to the big screen outside of the Transformers movies, which may be getting a reboot after Bumblebee is released later this year. Though, that's a little unclear at the moment.

Chris McKay in Negotiations to Dm ‘Dungeons & Dragons’ Movie for Hasbro/Paramount

While Warner Bros. and DC Comics fans are waiting to see if Chris McKay's Nightwing picture gets off the ground, the director of The Lego Batman Movie is rolling the dice on another project.

Joe installment and the first Micronauts picture.

Nightwing Movie Seemingly “Years Down The Line” As Chris McKay Circles Dungeons & Dragons

Looks like Dick Grayson will have to wait a few more years for that big-screen debut.

With Paramount now ready to roll the dice on its long-in-development Dungeons & Dragons movie – as of yesterday, Chris McKay is in negotiations to direct the fantasy flick – it appears Warner Bros. has shelved its nascent Nightwing spinoff for the foreseeable future.

In light of Variety’s scoop, The Tracking Board has published a follow-up report claiming Nightwing is now “years down the line” as McKay turns his attention to D&D. If true, that tells us Dick Grayson isn’t necessarily a priority for Warner Bros. – not right now, at least – with the studio firmly focused on Aquaman and Shazam!, along with direct sequels to both Wonder Woman and David Ayer’s Suicide Squad, the latter of which will be directed by Gavin O’Connor.

Lego Batman’s Chris MacKay in talks to direct Dungeons and Dragons

Author: Zehra Phelan

The Lego Batman Movie helmer, Chris MacKay is currently in negotiations with Paramount Pictures to direct Dungeons and Dragons.

The film has been a long time in development but with this move, it shows the project is now starting to gain traction. Michael Gillio is on board to pen the script with Hasbro’s Brian Goldner and Stephen Davis producing.

The project has now fallen into the hands of the newly launched AllSpark Pictures after it changed hands Warner Bros. to Paramount and eventually to AllSpark after announcing the new studio. AllSpark is said to want to transform itself into an industry player to rival Marvel Studios.

Dungeons And Dragons is a fantasy adventure centring on a warrior and his band of mystical creatures as they embark on a dangerous journey to find a mythical treasure. As of 2004, Dungeons & Dragons remained the best-known and best-selling role-playing game,

Dungeons & Dragons movie landing new director

The Lego Batman Movie's Chris McKay is the new choice to direct the Dungeons & Dragons film...

The long-smouldering new movie of Dungeons & Dragons looks like it’s zeroing in on its choice of director, with The Lego Batman Movie’s Chris McKay in talks to take on the job. The same Chris McKay who is set to direct the Nightwing film for Warner Bros and DC.

Paramount Pictures and AllSpark Pictures are backing the movie, which will work from a screenplay by Michael Gillio.

It sounds as if this one is moving relatively quickly now as well. Back in 2016, Rob Letterman had been attached to the project as director, but if McKay signs on the dotted line, then the plan will be to get the film into production in the autumn. A 2021 release date had previously been mooted.

Whether this affects McKay directing the Nightwing movie remains to be seen.

What Chris McKay’s Dungeons & Dragons Movie Means For Nightwing

With Chris McKay in talks to direct the Dungeons & Dragons movie, his Dceu Nightwing film could be facing a significant delay. It’s been almost exactly one year since it was first announced that McKay would be helming Dick Grayson’s first live-action solo movie. The project’s initial development phase hasn’t exactly been speedy; we still don’t know when the film will be released or who will star in it, nor do we have any indications on what it will be about. And as of two weeks ago, the script hadn’t actually been turned into the studio yet. McKay has long maintained that he and screenwriter Bill Dubuque were taking things slow in order to get it right, but recent reports indicate that fans may have to wait far longer than expected for Nightwing to arrive in theaters.

Silver and Black Brings in Captain Marvel and Barbie Writers

Sony's highly-anticipated Silver & Black movie, which follows Silver Sable and Black Cat, has landed two new writers, Geneva Robertson-Dworet (Captain Marvel) and Lindsey Beer (Barbie). It has not been confirmed if the writers are starting over from scratch with a page-one rewrite, or if they will be working off any existing drafts. Gina Prince-Blythewood, who signed on to direct in May, wrote the initial draft of the script, with other writers such as Christopher Yost (Thor: Ragnarok) and Lisa Joy (Westworld) also working on the sreenplay.

The latest update we had on Silver & Black was from early January, when an unconfirmed report claimed that production starts this spring, with filming primarily set to take place in the studio's production hub in Atlanta, with some scenes also being shot on location in Mexico. That report claimed production is supposedly set to run between March 5 through mid-June, but with new

‘Game Night’ Trailer: Jason Bateman & Rachel McAdams Take It Up A Notch

Having just stepping into the world of Dungeons & Dragons, I know all about the good time spirit of the weekly hang with the gang. However, for Jason Bateman and Rachel McAdams, their own “Game Night” goes out of control in this upcoming romantic action comedy thing.
