What are the movie details?
The upcoming movie is written by Jonathan Goldstein and John Francis Daley, who directed the 2018 action-comedy film named ‘Game Night.’ The rights holder for Dungeons & Dragons is Paramount Pictures and Hasbro, where they are producing the film, and the latter will be distributing it in the United Kingdom and Canada. The movie is in the line of works for quite some time now, whereas earlier it was originally inherited by Warner Bros. and New Line Cinema. The earlier production would have Ansel Elgort in the lead role; however, things didn’t turn out the way they were intended to in the very beginning, and now the rights reside in the hands of Paramount Pictures and Hasbro.
Some extra details to dig deeper: The Chris Pine version will not be the first movie adaptation of Dungeons & Dragons. The first-ever adaptation of this game was made in 2000, a British-American action-adventure fantasy film whose direction was done by Courtney Solomon and written by Carroll Cartwright and Topper Lilien. The movie was entirely based on the same name’s role-playing game, and now the movie is receiving a brand new adaptation again.
After the 2000 adaptation, two more sequels followed: Dungeons & Dragons: Wrath of the Dragon God (2005) and Dungeons & Dragons 3: The Book of Vile Darkness (2012). However, the sequels failed to make any marks and didn’t even make it to the theatres properly.
