Dark elves, fighters/magpies and the like may soon be on the TV near you all thanks to the director of the movie Red Notice Mr. Rawson Thurber.
Polygon reports that a potential Dungeons & Dragons TV series will soon be in production. Red Notice writer and director Rawson Marshall Thurber was reportedly by the hugely popular Netflix movie.
D&D has a rich and successful history in video games. Unfortunately, this cannot be said of the moving image. A 2000 movie starring the great Jeremy Irons is famous, and I didn’t just come across D&D: Wrath of the Dragon God and D&D: The Book of Vile Darkness, which doesn’t appear on both sides with rough diamonds and more like diamonds. more rough diamonds in the rough state that the reason to bring Thurber into the game.
That hasn’t stopped Wizards of the Coast from taking another bite of the apple, this time in an environment where genre shows are through the roof. Previous statements by Wizards, also reported by Polygon, suggested that the series could adapt the story of Drizzt Do’Urden, a former Dark Elf soldier and 34-year-old protagonist of the Forgotten novels.
Well, I loved Drizzt as a child, but in the year of Our Lord 2022, he has an irritable and contradictory wing, two more swords, beautiful leather armor, weird eyes, the greatest swordsman in the world ™ who rules the Neighborhoods and is a Polish monster hunter. , who loves to bathe. It’s hard to imagine that Drizzt’s adaptation could compare favorably with Netflix’s brilliant win, and there are even rumors of Drizzt where various talents were linked to the project.
Aside from the Dark Elf, I’m not sure who could do a D&D adaptation. Perhaps it could focus on Elminster, Ed Greenwood’s sexually active Gandalf ego mutation, or perhaps the gord of the Thief, Gary Gygax’s main thief, Greyhawk. Whatever path Wizards and Thurber take, another sci-fi/fantasy item adaptation is coming and there’s nothing you can do about it.
