Chris Pine, known for Wonder Woman and Star Trek, is in talks to star in the upcoming Dungeons & Dragons movie.
According to Deadline, Pine and his team are negotiating a deal for the actor to star in the live-action film based on Hasbro’s popular role-playing game from Wizards of the Coast.
Jonathan Goldstein and John Francis Daley are writing and directing the flick who are known for penning Spider-Man: Homecoming and directed Game Night starring Jason Bateman and Rachel McAdams.
Dungeons & Dragons is at Paramount, where Star Trek finds its home, so Chris Pine should fit right in (maybe he'll play a fighter/paladin).
Hasbro/eOne and Paramount are jointly producing and financing the movie, with eOne distributing in the UK and Canada, and Paramount distributing in the rest of the world.
Dungeons & Dragons has been around since 1974 and has spawned video games, an animated series, and a movie back in 2000, and a TV movie sequel in 2005.
It's noted Paramount is hoping for a strong start for what the studios hope will be a new franchise launch.
Chris Pine has Wonder Woman 1984 coming out Christmas Day in theaters and on the HBO Max streaming service where he returns as Steve Trevor.
