Settlers of Catan Movie on the Way From Sony

  • Sony is working on a Settlers of Catan movie

But it is "being eyed as a potential franchise starter".

Now it looks as if Sony is planning on capitalizing on the board game's popularity and bringing it to theaters.

"Catan" is just the latest board game to move to the big screen, joining "Battleship", "Ouija", and of course, the cult classic "Clue". Meanwhile, Blaise Hemingway will be drafting the screenplay.

At present, it's believed that the film will be produced by Gail Katz (Air Force One, The Perfect Storm), Dan Lin (It, Sherlock Holmes, The Lego Movie), and Jonathan Elrich (Netflix's Death Note). Personally I think most of the fun is in the gameplay and not really the world, but if they can make a full-length movie about emojis, someone will probably pull out something decent with Settlers of Catan. The Settlers of Catan game has seen worldwide success, selling more than 25 million copies across 38 different languages.

"We're excited to be working with Sony to bring the iconic world of Catan to life", Katz said in a statement. He added that he was also a huge fan of the game and he believed on the endless opportunities that the movie will inspire its viewers, Entertainment Weekly reported.
