Another Dungeons and Dragons live-action adaptation in works

The series is being developed by writer Derek Kolstad, who is known for the John Wick franchise

Published: 17th January 2021

Yet another Dungeons and Dragons adaption is on cards, and this time, Derek Kolstad, a writer known for the John Wick franchise, will reportedly write and develop a series based on the popular game.

The growth of the adventure dice game during the pandemic has clearly been noticed by creators, as this is the second adaptation announced in the last two months. Three Dungeons and Dragons films have been released from 2000 to 2012. The latest one to get added to the list stars Chris Pine and is being directed by Jonathan Goldstein and John Francis Daley. The film is expected to be out in 2022. 

Kolstad, who is currently writing Marvel's The Falcon and the Winter Soldier series on Disney+, will create the Dungeons and Dragons series for Habro's eOne film studios.

The role-playing game was first published in 1974 by game designers Ernest Gary Gygax and David Arneson. Its popularity has grown ever since and it is arguably one of the largest role-playing franchises in the world.
