Washington:Chris McKay, who has helmed ‘The Lego Batman Movie’, is in talks to direct ‘Dungeons & Dragons’, which is based on a popular board game from a toy company. Michael Gillio will be penning the script. Brian Goldner and Stephen Davis are producing it.
The movie will be one of the first projects to go into production for the newly-created AllSpark Pictures. Launched last October, the production company aims to transform itself into an industry player to rival Marvel Studios.
The company’s lines of toys and games include ‘Mr. Potato Head’, ‘Monopoly’ and ‘My Little Pony’. Its products have inspired films with varying degrees of success.
