The screenwriter they're using isn't exactly known for being involved with good or all that successful films, though admittedly its almost impossible for the writing to be as bad as it was in the first one. The real sign that this will suck, besides just that it's a DnD movie, is that they actually went ahead and got people involved with the original to be involved with this one.
I was just about to post the same.

Do not write a "Dungeons & Dragons movie". Name the movie "Lords of Waterdeep". Slap D&D or "Forgotten Realms" on the movie poster, but make the movie about the political houses in a large town set in a fantasy world. Use the setting, not the system.
