Based on Gary Gygax and Dave Arneson's iconic role playing game "Dungeons & Dragons." First adapted for the small screen as an animated television series in 1983, "Dungeons & Dragon" hit theaters with a 2000 live-action version directed by Courtney Solomon. The film was neither a critical nor financial success, but it did lead to a telefilm sequel with 2005's "Dungeons & Dragons: Wrath of the Dragon God" and a direct-to-DVD followup with "Dungeons & Dragons: The Book of Vile Darkness" in 2012. Johnson's screenplay is said to have started its existence as an adaptation of Gygax and Jeff Perren's "Chainmail," a 1971 game that preceded D&D. With the rights to the more famous game now at Warner, the script is being rewritten to encompass the broader and more well-known fantasy universe.
