Get ready to break out the 20-sided die.

Rob Letterman is set to direct a Dungeons & Dragons movie for Warner Bros, from a script written by Wrath of the Titans scribe David Leslie Johnson, THR has confirmed.

Hasbro’s Brian Goldner and Stephen Davis will produce, along with Courtney Solomon and Allan Zeman of Sweetpea Entertainment, as well as Roy Lee.

The project endured some major hit points when the film rights to the classic role-playing game were caught up in a legal battle.

Hasbro, which now owns the company that first published Dungeons & Dragons in 1974, and Sweetpea Entertainment, which exercised an option on film rights in the 1990s and later sold those rights to Warner Bros, eventually reached a settlement last August. After which, Warner Bros. began to move forward with the project.

Letterman helmed DreamWork's Shark Tales and recently directed Columbia's Goosebumps adaptation, which grossed $148 million at the international box office.  

He is repped by WME.
