Warner Bros. Pictures, Hasbro’s Allspark Pictures and Sweetpea Entertainment are moving forward on a feature film franchise based on the role playing game Dungeons & Dragons.

The announcement was made on the same day that a ruling granted Hasbro's Wizards of the Coast subsidiary the sequel rights to the franchise.

Warner Bros. Pictures has now given priority to the project, which already has a script written by David Leslie Johnson (

The Conjuring 2, Wrath of the Titans

).

“We are so excited about bringing the world of Dungeons & Dragons to life on the big screen,” says Greg Silverman, president, creative development and worldwide production, Warner Bros. Pictures. “This is far and away the most well-known brand in fantasy, which is the genre that drives the most passionate film followings. D&D has endless creative possibilities, giving our filmmakers immense opportunities to delight and thrill both fans and moviegoers new to the property.”

) are attached as producers. Solomon and Zeman will be attached to produce all Warner Bros.-produced Dungeons & Dragons film and television productions in the future, as well.

“This is such an enormous opportunity to bring the rich fantasy setting of the Forgotten Realms to life and, together with the creative powerhouse of Warner Bros., use movies to tell the stories that have enchanted passionate D&D fans for decades,” says Stephen Davis, executive vice president and chief content officer, Hasbro. “D&D is the role-playing game that started it all, and now we have the opportunity to ignite a franchise for its legions of avid fans in a way never done before.”
