A year before Peter Jackson took people to Middle Earth in “The Lord of the Rings”, “Dungeons & Dragons” hit theaters. Starring Jeremy Irons and Marlon Wayans the film was a critical and financial disaster. But WB has the rights and is bringing it back to the big screen. And it’ll happen fast since the studio is using a completed script called “Chainmail” and converting it to work in the DD universe. Bad news is the screenwriter, David Johnson, wrote “Wrath of the Titans” and “Red Riding Hood”.
