. According to Variety, its just among several D&D projects presently underway – apparently Hasboro film studio eOne is likewise in speak about a Dungeon & & Dragons job – although Kolstads treatment “is anticipated to craft a story that will record vital elements of the franchise through a live-action lens”.
As you may well expect, very little else is yet learnt about the task – Variety states “details on where Kolstad plans to take the storyline or how he plans to expand the franchise have actually not yet been exposed” – but its thought it wants to capitalise on the boost in new D&D fans that started playing during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Although it was initially hypothesized that the production would reunite Chernobyls Craig Mazin with director Johan Renck, its now thought Renck needed to drop out because of a scheduling conflict.
HBO greenlit the new tv adjustment of The Last of Us at the end of last year. The job is progressing under the watch of Mazin and the games author Neil Druckmann, along with PlayStation Productions, Word Games, and, of course, Naughty Dog.
