Some of you may remember the Dragon’s Lair arcade game (I’m not quite ancient enough myself, but I did play the SNES version) from the early ’80s. It featured ground-breaking graphics for its time, was notoriously difficult to clear, and has since inspired several comic books and a short-lived animated series.
Now, THR reports that Ryan Reynolds (Deadpool, Green Lantern) is in talks to play the lead in a live-action Dragon’s Lair movie for Netflix. Though not confirmed in the trade’s write-up, it’s assumed he’d play the game’s main character Dirk the Daring.
Further details are sparse, but we do know that Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark screenwriters Dan and Kevin Hageman will pen the script.
