Sony is working on a Settlers of Catan movie

The Settlers of Catan first released in 1996 as a game that brought players into the roles of settlers who are each attempting to build and develop their holdings, while acquiring (or bartering) resources to build things. 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. Fast forward two years, and Variety now reports that Sony Pictures is in talks to acquire the rights and adapt The Settlers of Catan as a movie. Andrea Giannetti will oversee the project for Columbia. 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. I haven't played the game myself, but as Catan has sold more than 25 million copies in 38 languages, there's clearly a massive fan-base behind the franchise, but, will they turn out for a possible feature-film? "It's not every day that you have the opportunity to work in a world beloved by millions of people, and expand its story for the screen".

Through its original release in 1995, "Settlers of Catan" gained honors from the Germany critics and was named as the "Most Prestigious Game of the Year" award victor. Since then, it has branched out into hundred of additional expansion and companion games while Catan tournaments have popped up around the world.

"Settlers of Catan" is undoubtedly one of the most coveted games since it was released in 1995.

The multiplayer strategy game even gave rise to a novel and several video games across various platforms, including PC, Xbox, PlayStation 3, iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch, BlackBerry and Android phones.

What do you think of The Settlers of Catan coming to the big screen from Sony?

The game, which was originally designed by Klaus Teuber, has the goal of creating a dominant community in the ever-changing island of Catan.
