No details are given for the plot of this new Dungeons & Dragons movie, but it will be the first feature film based on this property since Jeremy Irons appeared in Newline’s adaptation in 2000. The rights to the Dungeons & Dragons film appear to have been allowed by Warner Bros. to take control after years of court battles and a 2015 reconciliation. Ansel Elgort had an early discussion with the star. Things changed after Paramount signed a production and distribution agreement with Hasbro, the owner of Wizards of the Coast. This news makes a little more clear about their plans. Former Marvel Studios executive Jeremy Ratcham is participating as an eOne producer and will be shown in theaters on May 27, 2022, following a delay due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
