English actor Hugh Grant has been casted in the upcoming Dungeons & Dragons movie by Paramount and eOne. Jonathan M. Goldstein & John Francis Daley, the duo behind the comedy-thriller hit Game Night, will direct the film which is set to be released in May 2022. Grant joins a huge production that features other famous Hollywood names: from Chris Pine (Wonder Woman) and Michelle Rodriguez (Fast & Furious), to young stars like Sophia Lillis (It) and Regé-Jean Page (Bridgerton).
Dungeons & Dragons’ film adaptation will keep the spirit of the role-playing game, by incorporating fantasy creatures and humans, treasure hunts and all the aspects that made the original game iconic.
