Regé-Jean Page, the star of the Netflix series The Chronicle of the Bridgertons, joins the cast of the Dungeons & Dragons reboot, in which he will play the lead role.
Since the release of the Netflix series The Chronicle of the Bridgertons, the name of Regé-Jean Page has been on everyone’s lips. After seeing his name join the long list of contenders to succeed Daniel Craig in the James Bond saga, the young actor has just been hired by Paramount to play the main role of the Dungeons & Dragons reboot. He thus joins Chris Pine, Michelle Rodriguez and Justice Smith already announced in the cast of this new film adaptation of the famous medieval-fantasy game created in the 70s by Gary Gygax and Dave Arneson.
Directed by Jonathan Goldstein and John Francis Daley (the writers of Spider-Man: Homecoming), the feature film comes from the universe of the Dungeons and Dragons role-playing game, and more precisely from the campaign world of the Forgotten Realms. The duo of filmmakers reworked the last version of the script based on the one previously written by Michael Gilio. Announced several years ago, the project was previously to be directed by Rob Letterman, led by Ansel Elgort and produced by Warner Bros. No details on the plot have yet been revealed but the feature film is already announced in our cinemas for May 25, 2022.
As a reminder Dungeons & Dragons has already been the subject of three feature films: Dungeons and Dragons by Courtney Solomon with Justin Whalin, Marlon Wayans and Jeremy Irons (2000) and its sequels Dungeons & Dragons, supreme power and Dungeons and How to Train Your Dragon 3 – The Book of Darkness directed by Gerry Lively.
