Last year it was announced that a Dungeons & Dragons film was in development, with Jonathan Goldstein and John Francis Daley writing the script.
But, since then there hasn’t been any significant updates on the project. Until now, as Goldstein has teased the script.
Just the front page, but it does confirm that the duo has indeed penned the screenplay, as well as handling the directing duties. With Daley and Goldstein usually handling action/comedy projects, it will certainly be interesting to see that they do with something like Dungeons & Dragons.
The pair had been attached to direct the Flash film for Warner Brothers, but as with most of these projects, things changed and it left It director Andy Muschietti in the director’s chair. So, hopefully the two are ready for the scale of something like Dungeons & Dragons. Perhaps they will even approach the film in a Jumanji style, where the characters are aware that they are playing a game, rather than the way in which 2016’s Warcraft tried to bring the game’s world to life.
Dungeons & Dragons is currently slated for release on November 19th, 2021.
