Battle Over ‘Dungeons & Dragons’ Movie


Well boy’s and girls, it looks as if it is going to be a long time before we are allowed to enjoy another Dungeons & Dragons film.


According to, Sweetpea Entertainment filed suit for a partial dismissal of the infringement suit filed by Wizards of the Coast against Sweetpea regarding its plans for a film based upon the Dungeons & Dragons franchise. The planned Warner Bros. film is to be based upon D&D  precursor Chainmailnot Dungeons & Dragons, the motion alleges.


Evidently, the Warner Bros. film with Sweetpea is one of two planned Dungeons & Dragons films. The other, by Universal Studios, is currently in the works with Wizards of the Coast parent company Hasbro. Additionally, Sweetpea likewise filmed suit last September to block the Universal Studios film.


Trial is set for March 24, 2014.


So Dungeons & Dragons fans, be patient – looks like it is going  to be a while before we enjoy a new Dungeons & Dragons film. However, if it is anything like the 2000 film Dungeons & Dragons starring Jeremy Irons and Thora Birtch, we can wait.

About Legacy of the Crystal Shard

Winter has come early to Icewind Dale. The people of Ten-Towns are on edge; with food and supplies scarce, each town looks jealously to its own survival. Beyond the walls, wolves and yetis prowl the wilds, and few travelers brave enough to venture there ever return. To the north, the Reghed tribes whisper stories of the Frostmaiden, manifested in the world to punish those who have strayed from her worship. And on the slopes of Kelvin’s Cairn, an old enemy awakens to finish the conquest he started over one hundred years ago.

Legacy of the Crystal Shard is an adventure for low-level characters and can be run either as a stand-alone adventure or as a sequel to Murder in Baldur’s Gate. The adventure allows players to explore the breadth of Faerûn’s frozen north and face old foes as well as new threats to the people of Icewind Dale.”
