Thus, Sony sees vast potential, and has hopes of constructing a possible multi film franchise from the game's world. There's also teh OG board game flick, Clue, the 1985 whodunit movie starring Tim Curry.

Right now, the big news is that The Settlers of Catan, or just Catan (it was recently rebranded) is heading to the big screen courtesy of Sony.

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). Their team is joined by John Eirich and together they'll be working from a script by Blaise Hemingway.

Perhaps, the movie producer feels privileged by the opportunity to share " Settlers of Catan" with billions of people around the world.

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

There's no denying that The Settlers Of Catan is a very popular property - it's believed that the game may have sold close to 20 million copies worldwide. "As huge fans of the game, we're struck by the endless possibilities of stories that it could inspire".

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

No official release date has been announced for Settlers of Catan.

The award-winning boardgame by Klaus Teuber focuses on the fictional island of Catan, where players compete over the natural resources to create the dominant civilization.

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. Players assemble a modular island, which means that every game is a little bit different, and start building settlements and roads.
