Lego Batman filmmaker may direct Dungeons & Dragons
The animator-director is touted to direct the film under the Allspark Pictures banner
Director of The Lego Batman Movie, Chris McKay, is in talks to direct Dungeons & Dragons. Michael Gillio will be penning the script, while American multinational toy and board game company, Hasbro's Brian Goldner and Stephen Davis will be producing it.
The film will be one of the first projects to go into production for the newly-created Allspark Pictures. Launched last October, the production company aims to transform itself into an industry player to rival Marvel Studios.
Hasbro's lines of toys and games include Mr. Potato Head, Monopoly and My Little Pony. Its products have inspired films with varying degrees of success in the past.
