Chris Pine has been very busy this year from working on Wonder Woman 1984, Don't Worry Darling, and more. He is now in talks to star in the newest Dungeons & Dragons.


A Fight for the Rights

In 2000, New Line produced the first film adaptation of Dungeons & Dragons starring Jeremy Irons, the voice of Scar from The Lion King (1994).

Since then. the game whose rights are controlled by Hasbro have been in a legal battle between multiple production companies attempting to adapt the game for a modern film. In 2015, it looked as though Warner Bros were set to produce the film starring Ansel Elgort, widely known as Gus from The Fault in Our Stars (2014).

That didn't seem to pan out as now the rights are granted to Paramount who has a production and distribution deal with Hasbro.

Directors Jonathan Goldstein and John Francis Daley
