D&D Movie Lawsuit Proceeding

According to The Escapist, there will be no further attempts to reach an out of court settlement and the lawsuit over who has the rights to make a movie based on Dungeons & Dragons will proceed to trial September 16. Hasbro has sued Sweetpea Entertainment, the company that made the original D&D movie, stating that the rights to the D&D property reverted to Hasbro when Sweetpea failed to make additional movies within the time stipulated by the contract.

Of course, Sweetpea disagrees with this and countersued Hasbro, meaning we likely won't see an official Dungeons & Dragons movie before 2016, at the very earliest.
