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.
