WONDER WOMAN 1984 Star Chris Pine Joins Jonathan Goldstein & John Francis Daley's DUNGEONS AND DRAGONS

Game Night directors Jonathan Goldstein and John Francis Daley remain hard at work on their Dungeons and Dragons movie, and Wonder Woman 1984 star Chris Pine is now in talks to join the upcoming project...

We've known for a while now that a Dungeons and Dragons movie is in the works, with one-time helmers of The Flash, Jonathan Goldstein and John Francis Daley (Game Night), attached to direct.

Now, The Hollywood Reporter reveals that Wonder Woman 1984 star Chris Pine is in talks to join Paramount Pictures and eOne's long delayed big budget take on the classic board game. Goldstein and Daley recently finished rewriting the movie's screenplay, but plot details are top secret. 

However, as the trade explains, "the game is known for its wargames, treasure hunts, campaigns, camaraderie, and reversals of fortune, all in a setting that combines humans, elves, orcs, and wizards. The game famously uses multi-sided dice in gameplay and is overseen by a host known as the Dungeon Master."

There's obviously no word on who Pine will play in the movie - the previous draft of the screenplay was penned by Michael Gilio - but this won't be the first time the franchise has been brought to the big screen. In 2000, New Line adapted it for a poorly received effort starring Watchmen's Jeremy Irons. 

Warner Bros. was once working on a version starring Baby Driver star Ansel Elgort, but Paramount (a studio with a production and distribution deal with Hasbro) is now intent on turning it into a money-making franchise.

The potential is certainly there, but if Warcraft proved anything, it's that it might not be an easy movie to make. With Pine possibly taking on a leading role, though, we're definitely intrigued.
