The project has a planned release date in 2021
Apparently, Wizards of the Coast hasn’t given up on its dream of a big-budget Dungeons and Dragons movie. A release date was recently announced for a new movie, though it won’t be for quite some time yet.
Dungeons and Dragons hasn’t done that well with its past movie attempts. One may be surprised to learn that the last DnD film was released in 2012, as I certainly was, having known only of the 2000 and 2005 films. None of these enterprises have made it to theaters.
But the latest Dungeons and Dragon movie might. Partnering with Paramount Pictures on the project should enable Wizards to get the 2021 title some much-needed attention.
Of course, we aren’t likely to hear anything for a while. Previously, there was news that Ansel Elgort was in talks to play the movie’s lead, but this doesn’t seem to be the case anymore. There’s no word yet on the premise of the movie, though hopefully it can capture something of the classic experiences fans cherish of the game.
At present, the Dungeons and Dragons movie releases on July 23, 2021.
