Derek Kolstad, creator of John Wick, is putting together a crazy fun party for his Dungeons & Dragons movie for Paramount.

Comments

The live-action Dungeons & Dragons movie that's in development from Derek Kolstad, creator of the John Wick series, has found its party. The feature film will star Chris Pine (Star Trek), Hugh Grant (Notting Hill), Rege-Jean Page (Bridgerton), Michelle Rodriguez (Fast and Furious series), Sophia Lillis (It Part 1), and Justice Smith (Detective Pikachu) in unconfirmed roles. Grant is expected to play the villain of the movie, Forge Fletcher.

The announcement of the film came out this past January when Kolstad was tied to the project as well as Paramount and Hasbro's filmed entertainment studio, eOne, setting the stage for a television show based on the popular series later on as well.

This of course wouldn't be the first D&D movie. The first film was a box office bomb back in 2000 starring Thora Birch and Jeremy Irons, and the ones that followed being direct-to-video releases. The last movie, Dungeons & Dragons 3: The Book of Vile Darkness came out in 2012, and was mostly forgettable.

The casting news comes off the announcement that Wizards of the Coast is preparing a summer of celebration of Drizzt Do'Urden, the iconic D&D hero made famous in more than 30 novels penned by New York Times best-selling author, R.A. Salvatore.

The Dungeons & Dragons movie is scheduled for a March 2023 release.
