They’re casting for it, at least. I may be getting old; the article assumes that I of course know who Ansel Engort is – and I don’t, particularly. Or, more accurately, I kind of know; I just don’t really care, much.
Let me be honest with you: I don’t know whether you can put together a meaningful, decent, while still generic Dungeons & Dragons movie. I could believe that you could sustain a good flick by drawing from Greyhawk, or Forgotten Realms, or – listen for the people going ‘ooh’ – Ravenloft. But generic D&D is, well, generic fantasy at this point. Why buy the license if you’re just going to reference the rules-set?
