Dungeons & Dragons a mix of Game of Thrones, Princess Bride & more

We’ve got a new Dungeons & Dragons movie on the way that will bring the popular fantasy role-playing back to the big-screen. While speaking with Collider about All the Old KnivesChris Pine was asked if he could spill any details about the Dungeons & Dragons movie. While the actor naturally declined to discuss the plot of the upcoming film, he did say that it has some… interesting influences.

oh man. Well, what I will say is we had a hell of a fun time making it. There was a lot of laughs. The way that I’ve been describing it, it’s like game of Thrones mixed with a little princess-bridejust a smidge of Holy Grail; it’s somewhere in that ballpark. It’s a lot of fun. It’s got a lot of thrills. It’s poppy, it’s eighties heartfelt, there’s a bit of goonies in there.

Chris Pine went on to describe his character as “the ultimate party planner,“adding that he thinks”it’s going to be really good. I mean, who f**king knows, but I think we got a good shot and John and John are killer guys. They know comedy and they know heart and we had a great cast and we had a good time making it. And that’s all you can ask for.In addition to Chris Pine, the Dungeons and Dragons movie stars Rege-Jean Page (Bridgerton), Michelle Rodriguez (F9), Justice Smith (Jurassic World: Dominion), Sophia Lillis (Item), and Hugh Grant (the undoing). Jonathan Goldstein & John Francis Daley (game night) directed the film and also penned the script along with Michael Gilio.

In addition to the Dungeons & Dragons movie, there’s also a TV series in development as well. Rawson Marshall Thurber (Red Notice) has signed on to “creatively supervise” the TV series as well as write and direct the pilot and serve as executive producer. Michael Lombardo, President of Global Television at eOne, said last year that they have big plans for the franchise. “We don’t want it to just be one show so we are building out, developing out a multi-pronged approach for television, a number of scripted shows and unscripted, and we hope to be taking this out to the marketplace early next year,Lombard said. The series will serve as the cornerstone of the small-screen franchise and will also “complement” the feature film.

Dungeons & Dragons is slated to hit theaters on March 3, 2023.
