The new Dungeons and Dragons movie cast adds a Regé-Jean page
The cast of the new Dungeons and Dragons The film continues to grow and this time Paramount Pictures looked to one of Netflix’s recent hit shows to find its latest star. Régé-Jean Page is one of the stars of Bridgerton, the Gossip Girl-a period romance produced by Shonda Rhimes, and just before he stepped in to animate Saturday Night Live This weekend, he now plays a role in the fantasy adventure film based on the role-playing game of the same name.
The Hollywood Reporter reported that Regé-Jean Page has struck a deal to play a starring role in the new Dungeons and Dragons film casting. The page joins a strong line-up which currently includes Star trek franchise manager Chris Pin, Fast and furious franchise co-star Michelle rodriguez, and Jurassic World supporting star of the franchise Justice Smith. Page appears to be the only one not committed to a big, successful franchise, but if all goes well for Paramount that is about to change.
Details on the Dungeons and Dragons film are thin at the moment. Although it is known that the game takes place in a world full of treasure hunts, hundreds of mythical creatures, deadly battles, powerful magic and everything you could wish for in a fantastic setting, which is not clear, this is the exact story that this movie tells. This means that the movie could be set entirely in the fantasy world or incorporate gameplay from Dungeons and Dragons himself, perhaps bringing actors into the fantasy world in a Jumanji kind of situation. Regardless of the situation, the film will apparently take a subversive approach to the game, whatever that means.
Because the details are thin, we do not know in which role Régé-Jean Page will play Dungeons and Dragons, That is. In fact, we don’t have any details on the characters. any announced cast members will perform. However, we do know this movie is destined to have an ensemble cast, so there are likely some other key names waiting to be revealed.
We also know Game night director duo Jonathan goldstein and John Francis Daley will helm the movie, and they’ve updated a previous version of the script that originally came from Michel Gilio. Knowing what the duo did with Spider-Man: Homecoming in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, I can’t wait to see what they can do in the fantasy genre.
New Dungeons and Dragons the film is produced by Jeremy Latcham via eOne, the entertainment arm of toy maker Hasbro, which also Brian Goldner set to produce. Hasbro / eOne and Paramount Pictures will produce and finance the film together.
