The Dungeons & Dragons film begins to move forward as it casts a high profile Hollywood Chris for its lead role. Chris Pine has officially signed on to star in the live-action film based on Hasbro’s classic role playing game.
Deadline reports that Hasbro/eOne and Paramount will jointly finance the film, with eOne distributing in the UK and Canada, and Paramount the rest of the world. The film is currently set to shoot in Belfast for the first quarter of next year.
Johnathan Goldstein and John Frances Daley (Game Night, Spider-Man Homecoming) are attached to direct. Jeremy Latcham is producing through his deal with studio eOne, Hasbro’s entertainment wing.
A potential Dungeons & Dragons film has been in development limbo for years. The project has spent time in court over rights disputes. Warner Bros and New Line attempted to bring the franchise to the screen but to no avail. The original game was released 46 years ago and has seen 40 million players from across the world.
Pine is set to star in Wonder Woman 1984, which is out in theaters and on HBO Max December 25, 2020.
Not only are they back to our screens at home but they are once again lighting up the big screen at the theater nearest you.
Hawkeye seems to be striking the perfect balance between Christmas magic and the grounded MCU development necessary for an original Avenger.
It turns out even Disney cannot quite figure out the formula to solve the industry’s massive problem with streaming services.
