Warner Bros. has acquired the film rights for seminal roleplaying game Dungeons and Dragons, according to Deadline. The project arose out of a script based on Chainmail, a medieval (eventually fantasy) miniatures game designed by Gary Gygax and Jeff Perren and released by Guidon Games. The Chainmail script was written by David Leslie Johnson, who wrote Wrath of the Titans, a couple of episodes of The Walking Dead, and Red Riding Hood. He’s also been a frequent assistant to Frank Darabont, so has learned from one of the best.
Whatever Warner Bros. does with D&D, hopefully it will be far superior to the move released in 2000.
