Nightwing Director Chris McKay In Talks For Dungeons & Dragons Movie

Paramount Pictures, Hasbro Studios and their newly formed production division Allspark Productions are reportedly in negotiations with The LEGO Batman Movie's Chris McKay to direct the Dungeons & Dragons reboot. AllSpark Pictures is meant to be the launching point for a line of Hasbro branded film projects, with the intention to rival the box office power of Marvel Studios.

A report from Trailer-Board revealed that according to their sources, Nightwing is "less of a priority."This explains McKay reportedly shifting focus to another project for the studio".

Dungeons & Dragons is the role-playing fantasy adventure game first created in the 1970s in which players are characters in an ongoing fantasy story. This aspect was also suggested by McKay himself in the previous months but should he go full speed ahead with the Dungeons & Dragons movie, the interruption might end up resulting in a delay for Nightwing. An earlier Dungeons & Dragons movie was released in 2001, but it was a commercial failure and poorly received by critics. Certainly, hiring McKay is a step in the right direction, as he proved with The LEGO Batman Movie that he is able to squeeze all types of references into a cohesive story.

Paramount Pictures and AllSpark Pictures are backing the movie, which will work from a screenplay by Michael Gillio. He ensured fans that they can expect something really big from the collaboration of DC, Geoff Johns, and the Warner Bros team.
