: New Trailer For Spike Lee's TV Adaptation
Netflix has released the official trailer for Spike Lee's remake of his groundbreaking 1986 film She's Gotta Have It . She's Gotta Have It will debut globally on Netflix on Thanksgiving Day, November 23, 2017 .

Dan Lin and Jonathan Eirich, the "LEGO" movie maker, are also slated to produce the upcoming film adaptation. According to the trade, the Catan movie is being fast-tracked by Sony in hopes it can launch a film franchise.

You'll have to excuse our Adele paraphrasing, we're just excited to hear that Sony Pictures is in negotiations to acquire the rights to adapt the internationally popular board game The Settlers of Catan into a feature length film. The project will be overseen by Andrea Giannetti (Inferno, Passengers) for Columbia. Numerous expansions and spinoffs for the game exist, opening up the world to seafaring and wartime scenarios, as well as some expansions that take the game into real-world historical settings or the realm of outer space. 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. Designed by Klaus Teuber and first published in Germany in 1995, The Settlers of Catan has players filling the roles of settlers on the island of Catan, with each attempting to build and develop holdings while trading and acquiring resources. "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".
