Roy Lee ('The Lego Movie') will produce the project alongside Hasbro's Brian Goldner and Stephen Davis, Sweetpea Entertainment's Courtney Solomon and Allan Zeman.
David Leslie Johnson ('The Conjuring 2: The Enfield Poltergeist') has written the screenplay set in the "D&D" fantasy world of Forgoten Realms.

Pictures.
