Rob Letterman To Direct DUNGEONS & DRAGONS

Trackingboard is reporting Goosebumps director Rob Letterman is set to direct the highly-anticipated adaptation of the iconic role-playing game DUNGEONS & DRAGONS for Warner Bros. Letterman will be working from a script by Wrath of the Titans scribe David Leslie Jones.

Based on the popular fantasy role-playing game Dungeons & Dragons originally designed by Gary Gygax and Dave Arneson and first published in 1974, the action-adventure tale centers on a warrior and his band of mystical creatures – including a half-dragon and a cunning gnome – as they embark on a dangerous journey to find a mythical treasure.

The film is being producing by Roy Lee of Vertigo Entertainment, along with Stephen Davis and Brian Goldner of Hasbro and Courtney Solomon through his Sweetpea Entertainment. John Middelton will executive produce for Vertigo, while Allan Zeman will executive produce for Sweetpea. Cate Adams and Drew Crevello are overseeing for Warner Bros., while Coral Wright and Josh Feldman will oversee for Hasbro. Solomon also directed the 2000 Dungeons & Dragons adaptation for New Line, starring Justin Whalin, Marlon Wayans, and Thora Birch.

No casting announcements have been made, but sources say that producers are eyeing a Vin Diesel-type for the film’s lead characters (it’s worth noting that Diesel himself is a professed fan of the game, having played it for over 20 years).

Last year, Letterman steered R.L. Stine’s cherished children’s book series Goosebumps adaptation to a solid $150 million worldwide against its estimated $58 million budget, breeding confidence in the director’s ability to handle an international franchise with a large – and potentially vocal – built-in fanbase. That could prove to be crucial, given the fact that Dungeons & Dragons is reported to be the best-selling role-playing game of all time, with over 20 million having played the game internationally and more than $1 billion in book and equipment sales. Goosebumps also showcased Letterman’s ability to handle a myriad of special effects creatures on screen, which ought to come in handy in bringing the expansive DnD world and its inhabitants to life. Letterman got his start working in animation, with additional writing and directing credits that include Monsters vs. Aliens and Shark Tale.

Morbius: The Living Vampire Film In The Works

The Spider spin-offs keep on coming! With Venom now shooting, an even more obscure character from the web-slinger's extensive comicbook past has now been unearthed, with plans for a movie. Power Rangers writing duo Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless are in talks to craft the script for Morbius: The Living Vampire.

Sony is pushing ahead with another potential Spider-movie, which, like Venom, is unlikely to be linked to the MCU. What it will boast, however, is the story of Michael Morbius, a Nobel Prize-winning biochemist who tries to cure a rare blood disease using an experimental treatment that combines electroshock therapy and vampire bats. The results are predictably catastrophic, and he's transformed into... well, the title should be a clue. He has some of the traditional vampiric qualities – he ingests blood to live, and conversely is not fond of bright light. He can fly, has superhuman strength and healing capabilities. When he bites victims and drinks their blood, his attac…

Enter For A Chance To Win Passes To See DARKEST HOUR on December 5th at 7:00 PM in Dallas

During the early days of World War II, with the fall of France imminent, Britain faces its darkest hour as the threat of invasion looms. As the seemingly unstoppable Nazi forces advance, and with the Allied army cornered on the beaches of Dunkirk, the fate of Western Europe hangs on the leadership of the newly-appointed British Prime Minister Winston Churchill (Academy Award nominee Gary Oldman). While maneuvering around his political rivals, he must confront the ultimate choice: negotiate with Hitler and save the British people at a terrible cost or rally the nation and fight on against incredible odds. Directed by Joe Wright, DARKEST HOUR is the dramatic and inspiring story of four weeks in 1940 during which Churchill’s courage to lead changed the course of world history.
