Ryan Reynolds in Talks to Star in Dragon’s Lair Film for Netflix


Quote:
Ryan Reynolds is in talks to star in and produce a live-action feature adaptation of the ’80s arcade game “Dragon’s Lair” for Netflix.

Roy Lee will produce through his Vertigo Entertainment with Trevor Engelson of Underground Films. Don Bluth, Gary Goldman and Jon Pomeroy are also producing. Reynolds will produce through his Maximum Effort production company.

Dan and Kevin Hageman, whose credits include “The Lego Movie” and “Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark,” are attached to write the script. “Dragon’s Lair” put players in the shoes of Dirk the Daring as he attempted to rescue Princess Daphne from the dragon Singe and the wizard Mordroc.

“Dragon’s Lair” was originally released for arcades in 1983 by Cinematronics. The game used laserdisc technology and offered superior graphics and feature film quality animation from Don Bluth Studios.

Reynolds, best known for starring in the two “Deadpool” movies, teamed with Netflix on the action movie “6 Underground” and has been shooting Netflix’s “Red Notice” with Gal Gadot and Dwayne Johnson. Reynolds is also starring in Liosngate’s upcoming “The Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard” with Samuel L. Jackson and Salma Hayek.

“Dragon’s Lair” would mark the third recent video game-related project for Reynolds following last year’s “Pokemon: Detective Pikachu” and this summer’s upcoming “Free Guy.”

Obviously "The Rona" is not all we have to fear in 2020.

Only if you have to continually insert quarters because he dies repeatedly.

So random. Do people even know what Dragon's Lair is?

It does seem kind of random. What would be cool would be to see them use the Bandersnatch technology to let you pick which way he is going to go.

I dunno, I think Reynolds needs to stick to playing Deadpool and those snarky type of characters. Dirk the Daring doesn't seem his speed.

Penny Arcade described it as a "a real blockbuster".

The thing is that it wasn't the story that people loved about Draon's Lair, it was the visuals in comparison to everything else we saw in arcades at the time. I suppose I could understand doing a full animated movie in Don Bluth's style but it seems that the target audience here is kind of small.

With animation targeting adults on the rise in the US, I'm actually surprised they're not tackling this as an animated project.

It could actually prove to be a less expensive venture, when everything is said and done.

Of all the old laserdisc games, Dragon's Lair despite being likely the most famous of them, wasn't a very good game.
