Mice and Mystics is the next in a line of board game inspired movies coming up in the next few years. Sony is working on a Settlers of Catan movie, which now has a storyline, so feel free to check that out. There is ANOTHER Dungeons and Dragons movie to release in 2021. Ryan Reynolds is developing a new Clue movie with the Deadpool writing staff. And with Asmodee taking their first steps into Hollywood with the new Asmodee Entertainment Division, everyone is speculating what they must be working on. Fingers crossed for Arkham Horror.
While I’m sure this film team is great at their respective jobs, there is an awful lot of horror in their list of credits. It’s seems like an odd choice, but that’s just my opinion. I’m not saying anything about what to expect one way or another, it’s just an interesting observation.
… … Also Elf.
So, what do you think about this development team?
