While not much is known about the movie’s plot and or how it will connect the table-top game, the Dungeons & Dragons cast is one that features some pretty big names, including none other than Regé-Jean Page in an undisclosed role. Chris Pine, Michelle Rodriguez, and Justice Smith have also been cast in unspecified roles while Hugh Grant will reportedly take on the role of the villainous Forge Fletcher, per The Hollywood Reporter. Sophia Lillis, of IT and Sharp Objects fame, will also appear in the movie, reportedly as a character named Doric.
Originally set to be released theatrically in May 2022, Dungeons & Dragons is now scheduled to open March 3, 2023 following Paramount Pictures’ massive April 2021 shakeup that saw a reshuffling of many of the studio’s movies, including Mission: Impossible 7 and Top Gun: Maverick. Production got underway in early 2021.
