Dungeons And Dragons: Regé-Jean Page To Join Cast For Film Adaptation At Paramount

The Hollywood Reporter is exclusively reporting that Regé-Jean Page is the latest name to join the cast of Paramount’s upcoming film adaptation of the popular role-playing game Dungeons and Dragons.

 

The plot details for this upcoming adaptation are currently being kept under wraps, and the THR report is making it known it’s unclear whether this will be a fantasy film set within the world of the game or incorporate the storytelling and game-playing aspects.

 

A film version of Dungeons & Dragons has been on the cards for a number of years, but due to a rights dispute that led to a court battle lasting several years, studios have tried and failed to get it off the ground running, though a film adaptation did come out from New Line in 2000 starring Jeremy Irons, earning $33.8m worldwide with its $45m budget.

 

Hasbro/eOne and Paramount are co-producing and co-financing the film, with eOne distributing the film in the UK and Canada while Paramount will distribute the rest of the world. Jonathan Goldstein and John Francis Daley are attached to direct the project as well as write the script based on a draft penned by Michael Gilio. Jeremy Latcham will serve as producer on the project.

 

Regé-Jean Page will join a cast that includes Chris Pine, Michelle Rodriguez and Justice Smith. The studio are aiming to begin production on the project in late spring in Belfast.
