Nightwing Director Chris McKay In Talks For Dungeons & Dragons Film
The modern day and age of popular blockbuster films and television shows seems to be heavily populated with adaptations of properties once thought to be reserved only for those invested in “geek culture.” However, the Dungeons & Dragons film in the works at Paramount has taken quite some time to get off the ground. Now, it appears that the live-action adaptation of the nerd-favorite tabletop RPG classic might soon have a director, bringing it that much closer to reality. A new report indicates that Nightwing director, Chris McKay, is being sought for the Dungeons & Dragons film.
Variety has reported that McKay is in talks to direct the Dungeons & Dragons film for Paramount Pictures. He is currently working as the director of the Nightwing film under Warner Bros., and will be an executive producer for the upcoming sequel to The Lego Movie (2014). Paramount has already confirmed that Michael Gillio will write the script for the D&D film, and the producers will be Brian Goldner and Stephen Davis. The film currently has a planned July 23rd, 2021 release date.
The film is being made by Hasbro Studios under their Allspark Pictures unit, which will also be crafting films based on G.I. Joe and other classic Hasbro-owned properties. Hopefully, the crew behind the D&D film capture the true spirit of the beloved game and make its new film a critical hit.
