A reboot of Dungeons and Dragons is one step closer to becoming a reality.

Variety is reporting that Rob Letterman is on board to direct the film for Warner Brothers. The studio has remained committed to this project for some time but faced delays due to a lawsuit between Sweetpea Entertainment and Hasbro over who controlled the sequel rights.


New Line Cinema released the first Dungeon and Dragons film in 2001, and it drew mixed reviews and underwhelming ticket sales.

Rob Letterman most recently directed Goosebumps, which exceeded expectations at the box-office and has already been asked to helm the sequel for Sony Pictures.

Letterman started his directorial career in animation and is responsible for such films as Shark Tale and Monsters Vs. Aliens. His first foray into live-action films was the 2010 reboot of Gulliver’s Travels. From Gulliver’s Travels, he moved on to Goosebumps, which was his most successful live-action film to date.

Hasbro’s Brian Goldner and Stephen Davis along with Courtney Solomon and Allan Zeman of Sweetpea Entertainment will produce the movie. David Lee Johnson has already written a script. Warner Brothers hasn’t announced any casting decisions, or any release dates yet.
