Dungeons & Dragons (2000)
"I'm pretty sure WB are going to have to fire me if they want me to leave Nightwing.
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…..

Now, that’s not exactly confirmation that the movie is definitely happening,

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.
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.
Sources familiar with the situation suggest Chris McKay
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,
McKay will be busy, having also signed on to helm Warner Bros. and DC’s Nightwing movie, as well as his producer duties on The Lego Movie Sequel.
Variety also reveal that Michael Gillio will be on scripting duties, with Hasbro’s Brian Goldner and Stephen Davis producing.
All things being well, McKay will roll the dice on Dungeons & Dragons, 17 years since the lamentable Jeremy Irons/Marlon Wayans version, for a July 23rd 2021 release date.

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.
The filmmaker behind The Lego Batman Movie is in negotiations to helm Dungeons & Dragons for Paramount, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed. The film, based on the tabletop role-playing game, has a release date of July 23, 2021.
Dungeons & Dragons was previously adapted by New Line Cinema in a poorly received 2000 film starring Jeremy Irons. In recent years, the property was at the center of a legal battle over its film rights, with a 2015 settlement appearing to have paved the way for Warner...
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.

Directed by John Francis Daley & Jonathan Goldstein (“Vacation“), the premise for this one is pretty simple: competitive gamers get way in over their head, when a murder mystery party gets a bit too real.

“Dungeons & Dragons sparked a lifelong desire to create stories in me that’s never really gone away,” said writer Zub. “Dungeons & Dragons is all about exploration and engaging the unknown that lurks around every corner. I love the feeling of exploration that sword & sorcery stories provide. Evil At Baldur’s Gate is our fourth D&D mini-series with this cast and is a great way to jump on board and join in the adventure!
