WWP, Silver fire up ‘Dragons 2’

Shingle, Studio Hamburg unite for game sequel

BERLIN — Studio Hamburg’s international production arm WorldWide Pictures (WWP) is partnering with Joel Silver’s Silver Pictures on the sequel to “Dungeons and Dragons” and with Keystone Entertainment on family drama “Chestnut: Hero of Central Park.”

Warner Bros. has picked up “Dungeons and Dragons 2” for distribution Stateside and in selected international territories. Gerry Lively is helming the pic, which is to be shot in Europe this year.

Miramax will handle U.S. distribution of Robert Vince’s “Chestnut,” about two orphans and their canine pal who become local New York heroes overnight. The film was shot in Vancouver last year.

Pics follow WWP’s debut feature last year, Irish comedy “The Boys from County Clare,” which is being handled internationally by Overseas Film Group/First Look Media.

Launched in 2001, WWP utilizes a private investment fund to back English-lingo projects budgeted at between $5 and $20 million that already have a foreign sales company and a U.S. distributor attached in addition to a bankable minimum revenue guarantee.
