Warner Bros. has reportedly acquired the rights to make a movie based on the popular Dungeons & Dragons role-playing game which i personally loved since i was a kid.

IGN writes: “According to Deadline, the studio is already far along in the project’s development and is using a script by Wrath of the Titans and Frank Darabont protege David Leslie Johnson. Called Chainmail, the current screenplay — loosely based on an obscure game similar to D&D — will soon be reworked to fit the new Dungeons & Dragons feature.

The LEGO Movie’s Roy Lee and Courtney Solomon will produce the film. (Solomon, as it happens, also directed the not-so-successful 2000 D&D movie starring Jeremy Irons.)

Warners is no stranger to big, sweeping sword-and-sorcery titles, what with HBO’s Game of Thrones and Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit. Such as it is, Dungeons & Dragons is a big priority at the studio, which is now reportedly going out to filmmakers to direct.”

I’m just hoping it doesn’t suck as much as the 2000 film.
