McKay is reportedly in talks with Paramount Pictures to direct a live-action Dungeons & Dragons movie.

Michael Gilio will rewrite the script by David Leslie Johnson, and the film will be produced by Stephen Davis, Brian Goldner, Roy Lee, Courtney Solomon and Allan Zeman. Also, within the established DC Bat-movie universe, we will be getting at least two spinoff solo films which Bat-fans in particular are very interested in: Joss Whedon's Batgirl and McKay's Nightwing.

Dungeons & Dragons is the role-playing fantasy adventure game first created in the 1970s in which players are characters in an ongoing fantasy story.

According to a new report from Variety earlier today, McKay is now in talks with Paramount Pictures but negotiations have yet to be finalized. The film has been in development since 2015, but the lawsuit between Hasbro and Sweetpea Entertainment over sequel rights to the movie adaptation of the game delayed the film's progress.

Nightwing movie director Chris McKay agrees with a fan's assertion that the hero's eyes when masked should be white, as in the comic books. When last we heard, the property was dropped from Warner Bros., (Which included writing work from great up-and-coming talents like Lindsey Beer and Geneva Robertson-Dworet, who have both recently signed on to the Silver & Black movie) and had moved over to Paramount. An earlier Dungeons & Dragons movie was released in 2001, but it was a commercial failure and poorly received by critics.

This long-delayed film is coming out nearly twenty years after the critically panned (yet oddly beloved) Dungeons & Dragons in 2000. There's now no information regarding the film's star cast.
