Yet another Dungeons and Dragons adaption is on cards, and this time, Derek Kolstad, a writer well-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 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, and 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 release in 2022.
Kolstad, who is currently writing Marvel’s The Falcon and the Winter Soldier series on Disney Plus, will make the Dungeons and Dragons adaptation 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, and the game’s popularity has grown ever since. Variety, while reporting the news, stated that tens of millions of Americans have played the game, which is arguably one of the largest role-playing franchises in the world.
