Details about the film's plot and characters are still unknown, but it will likely be a fantasy story that's set in the world of the game. So far, we know that Jonathan Goldstein and John Francis Daley are directing the film. The screenplay was written by Goldstein, Daley, Michael Gilio and David Leslie Johnson-McGoldrick. Additionally, Jeremy Latcham, Brian Goldner, Courtney Solomon, Roy Lee, Allan Zeman and Stephen Davis are serving as producers.
When the movie began development in 2015, it was spearheaded by Warner Bros. Pictures and Ansel Elgort was reportedly starring. Since then, there's been a lot of back and forth with regards to filming rights (at one point, even Joe Manganiello, a huge fan of the franchise, tried to negotiate the rights to make the film). But by January of 2020, it was confirmed that Daley and Goldstein co-wrote a new script and would serve as the new directors.
Page has yet to speak out about the casting news, but now, the upcoming film is starting to appeal to fans who aren't familiar with the game. One user tweeted, "So between Regé-Jean Page, Chris Pine and Justice Smith, they are really finding new ways to make me want to see the new Dungeons and Dragons movie."
Dungeons and Dragons is set to hit theaters in 2022, but until then, we'll be patiently awaiting more details.
