Los Angeles, April 8 (IANS) Actor Joe Manganiello says he wants to make a movie based on fantasy role-playing game “Dungeons & Dragons”.
During an interview with MTV, the “Smurfs: The Lost Village” actor opened up about his efforts to make “Dungeons & Dragons” movie a reality, reports aceshowbiz.com.
“Last year with a playwright I went to Carnegie Mellon, I actually made a draft of a film, and now we’re talking to all the right parties,” said Manganiello.
“I had a two-day creative summit with the Wizards of the Coast… We had like a two-day summit about where the movie could go or TV series, products, synergy, the whole deal,” he added.
Manganiello explained what it might take to make a great fantastical movie adaptation of the popular game.
He suggested that fantasy movies had to have a “human aspect” in it.
“Obviously there’s a spectacle. There’s dragons, breathing fire and lightning. That’s the biggest draw in ‘Game of Thrones’…(but) what makes a great fantasy or superhero movie is the human aspect. It’s gotta be about something,” he said.
