Dungeons and Dragons The series is ready to breathe fire again.
First time in over 20 years Dungeons and Dragons the film is in production. Paramount today officially announced the project’s official title, cast, and release date. Film `s name Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves. (This is his official logo above.) Starring Chris Pine, Michelle Rodriguez, Rare-Jean Page, Justice Smith, Sophia Lillis and Hugh Grant. Directed by Jonathan Goldstein and John Francis Daley, whose previous films include Vacation and Game nightThe film will premiere in March 2023.
Paramount certainly hopes for a better result than the previous one Dungeons and Dragons a film that was released in theaters in 2000. Directed by Courtney Solomon and starring Justin Waylin, Marlon Wayans, Thora Birch and Jeremy Irons, this movie received terrible reviews and failed at the box office. (Example review excerpt from A.O. Scott in New York Times: “The stew, unfortunately, is exactly what the new film looks like, not only thematically, but also visually. It’s chock-full of computer-generated special effects so hazy it looks like they were created during a power outage.»)
Despite the failure of the original film, Dungeons and Dragons remains the gold standard among RPGs to this day. Now almost 50 years D&D has generated over $1 billion in sales and has supposedly seen a surge in players and interest in recent years. So this reboot of the franchise could come at just the right time.
Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves scheduled to open in theaters on March 3, 2023.
