Settlers of Catan Movie in Development at Sony

Settlers of Catan Movie in Development at Sony”

"We're excited to be working with Sony to bring the iconic world of Catan to life", Katz said.

Klaus Teuber's wildly popular board game The Settlers of Catan is now being looked at as a possible movie franchise. Blaise Hemingway (the forthcoming "Playmobil") is set to write the script. Sony is reportedly hoping to make a franchise out of "Catan".

Variety reports that Gail Katz (The Perfect Storm, Air Force One) will produce after acquiring the rights back in 2015. In addition to Katz, the movie is being produced by Jonathan Eirich, who previously produced Netflix's Death Note, and Dan Lin, who was a producer on It and The Lego Movie.

Per the outlet, Sony is fast-tracking the project with eyes on launching a new franchise. Katz acquired the rights to the board game in 2015, and Sony Pictures is now negotiating to acquire those rights. Andrea Giannetti will oversee the project for Columbia. Designed by Klaus Teuber and first sold in 1995, The Settlers Of Catan, as Wikipedia succinctly puts it, sees "players in the game represent settlers establishing colonies". 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. Numerous expansions and spinoffs for the game exist, opening up the world to seafaring and wartime scenarios, as well as some expansions that take the game into real-world historical settings or the realm of outer space. Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard are among the high-profile fans of the game, which finds players creating settlements on the fictional isle. It is also available to play on gaming and mobile platforms.

What do you think of The Settlers of Catan coming to the big screen from Sony? A short film titled The Lord of Catan starring Amy Acker (Angel, Person of Interest, The Gifted) and Fran Kranz (The Cabin in the Woods) was released in 2014 and featured a married couple taking their rivalry over a game of Settlers of Catan to apocalyptic proportions.
