'Settlers of Catan' movie adaptation reportedly in the works at Sony

Settlers of Catan Movie Adaptation Sony

According to Variety, Sony will develop the game into a feature film with the hope of potentially starting a franchise.

The Settlers of Catan is only the latest in board game-to movie adaptations. It's a German board game which has players compete in forming civilizations and building roads.

However, Uber's cars will remain available until the legal process is exhausted - potentially a year or more. A petition launched by Uber to protest TfL's decision has gathered more than 800,000 signatures.

As it turns out, Sony is now planning a movie based on the massively popular board game, Settlers of Catan.

Those rights are now held by producer Gail Katz (AIR FORCE ONE), who snagged the feature film and TV rights to Catan over two years ago. A global phenomenon, Catan has sold over 25 million copies in dozens of languages, which means that it has destroyed approximately 25 million friendships. 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. Meanwhile, Blaise Hemingway will be drafting the screenplay.

DJI launches Zenmuse X7 camera with four lenses
Each of these lenses has f2.8 aperture and the 16mm has a built-in ND filter while the others feature a mechanical shutter. Four lenses are now available with focal lengths at 16mm, 24mm, 35mm and 50mm, all capable of resolution up to 8K.

Dan Lin, whose credits include "It" and "The Lego Movie", and Jonathan Eirich will join the producing team.

When asked about the opportunity to be working with Sony, Katz added that he is very excited to be working with the studio with their plans of bringing the world of Catan to life. "As huge fans of the game, we're struck by the endless possibilities of stories that it could inspire". While not as universal as other, less good board games (Monopoly stinks, y'all), a lot of people all over the world are familiar with this game. However, it's far from a plot-heavy game; aside from a vague mention that you are playing some of the first inhabitants of the island of Catan, there's no real story to speak of.
