Producers Have Acquired TV & Film Rights for ‘Settlers of Catan’

- Advertisment - Save on Great LDS Gifts

Producer Gail Katz (The Perfect Storm, Air Force One) has acquired the film and TV rights to the bestselling multiplayer strategy game The Settlers of Catan.  The game, created by Klaus Teuber, has sold over 22M board versions worldwide in 30 languages and 50 countries. It also counts downloads in excess of 1.6B. The Settlers of Catan revolves around players creating a dominant community on the fictional island of Catan.  Settlers must outwit one another amidst fierce competition for the island’s scarce resources.

“I’ve been wanting to see an adaptation of the game for years, ever since my Catan-obsessed college-aged kids introduced me to it,” said Katz in a statement.  “The island of Catan is a vivid, visual, exciting and timeless world with classic themes and moral challenges that resonate today.  There is a tremendous opportunity to take what people love about the game and its mythology as a starting point for the narrative.”
