Dungeons & Dragons movie filming begins
The film stars Chris Pine, Regé Jean-Page, Michelle Rodriguez, Sophia Lillis, Hugh Grant, Justice Smith and Chloe Coleman
The Dungeons & Dragons movie has officially begun filming. Director Jonathan Goldstein took to Twitter to announce the news with a picture of the clapboard with the Dungeons & Dragons logo. John Francis Daley, Goldstein's co-director, is also listed on the clapboard.
Based on the popular tabletop role-playing game of the same name, Dungeons & Dragons has been adapted several times before. The upcoming adaptation was announced in 2013 by Warner Bros, before moving to Paramount.
In December 2020, Chris Pine was roped in to headline the project. More names were later added to the project, and the film now stars Regé Jean-Page, Michelle Rodriguez, Sophia Lillis, Hugh Grant, Justice Smith and Chloe Coleman.
The director duo Jonathan Goldstein and John Francis Daley is writing a new version of the script based on a draft by Michael Gilio.
Dungeons & Dragons is co-produced and co-financed by Paramount with Hasbro and eOne. The film is slated for release on May 27, 2022.
