Michelle Rodriguez and Justice Smith join the Dungeons & Dragons movie

Michelle Rodriguez (Fast and Furious films) and Justice Smith (Pokemon Detective Pikachu) are set to star alongside Chris Pine in the new film adaptation of Dungeons & Dragons, Hasbro’s popular game franchise from Wizards of the Coast. Hasbro/eOne and Paramount are jointly producing and financing the feature, with eOne distributing in the UK and Canada and Paramount in the rest of world.

Johnathan Goldstein and John Francis Daley will direct and write the script based on a draft by Michael Gilio. Jeremy Latcham is producing through his deal with studio eOne, Hasbro’s entertainment arm. Hasbro’s Brian Goldner is also producing.

Plot details behind this latest take on the game are being kept under wraps, but I imagine they will include dungeons and/or dragons…although knowing the way Hollywood sometimes goes, there is always a chance that neither of those things will be in the final film.

Dungeons & Dragons is a leading fantasy entertainment franchise, fueled by the imagination of storytellers around the world. More than 40 million fans have interacted with or played D&D since it was first published 46 years ago, including via video games and livestream entertainment on Twitch and YouTube.

I play a lot of Dungeons and Dragons and have suffered through some of the earlier films based on the game. I really hope they get this film right or, at the very least, half-decent, but so far I am not really feeling it.

Will it follow a band of adventurers in a fantasy realm working their way from Level 1 newbies to full-blown heroes. Or will we begin on Earth and people end up getting sucked into an alternate dimension as they did in the old cartoon?

What do you want to see in a Dungeons & Dragons movie?

Rodriguez is repped by CAA, David Markman and DLA Piper. Smith is repped by WME, The Kohl Group and Sloane, Offer, Weber & Dern.
