The Hollywood Reporter is… well, reporting, that Paramount and Hasbro/eOne are beginning casting on a Dungeons & Dragons feature film and begging the groundwork for a television series. To pen the script and develop the pitch for a live-action series, the studios have turned to John Wick writer/creator Derek Kolstad. This is just part of eOne’s efforts to transform the popular RPG game into an entertainment franchise as the studio is said to be working with multiple writers to develop various projects in the fantasy universe.
Kolstad wrote the original John Wick series as a spec called Scorn. He would then go on to work on both sequels and is currently working on the Marvel Studios upcoming Falcon and the Winter Solder series for Disney+.
