Re: Warners to reboot "Dungeons & Dragons" movie

My first thought was this was natural competition for Duncan Jones' Warcraft movie. It'll be interesting to see how that turns out - and tying it to LOTR and Harry Potter is a bit more relevant the nine billion superhero movies that sprout every time I turn my back.

They're just thinking of using the D&D brand for a different movie. There's not much to D&D anyway, it's just vanilla fantasy.
D&D's license covers dozens of different settings, including pretty much any major variety of fantasy one would care to name.

Their most popular setting - Forgotten Realms - is defined as the most vanilla, though, and is the most likely locale for a film.
