''John Wick'' writer Derek Kolstad has come on board to write and develop a live-action series based on fantasy role-playing game ''Dungeons & Dragons''.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Entertainment One and its parent game company Hasbro are backing the series.

Designed by Gary Gygax and Dave Arneson, ''Dungeons & Dragons'' first became popular as a board game in late 1970s and 1980s. It allows participants to create their own characters and engage across a variety of in-game adventures, from finding treasure to exploring strange new places to battling monsters, all under the oversight of a Dungeon Master, who serves as the director and storyteller of the game.

''Dungeons & Dragons'' is also currently being adapted by Paramount into a feature film featuring ''Wonder Woman'' star Chris Pine. Entertainment One is working with multiple writers to develop various projects set in the fantasy universe.
