The 2023 Dungeons & Dragons film was another in a long line of adaptations that brought the tabletop experience to people, and for that we are forever grateful.
Since Stranger Things, D&D has lost its overly nerdy inaccessibility sheen, and since then we’ve seen the film Baldur’s Gate 3 and others make the medium accessible to more players. It’s not just D&D either, as Cyberpunk 2077 started out as a tabletop title before becoming a defining RPG game.
But now it looks like tabletop RPG titles could be coming even more into the public consciousness, as the Honor Among Thieves star has spoken about his hopes for a sequel.
Chris Pine is confident there will be more Dungeons & Dragons films
It looks like fans’ hopes for another live-action Dungeons & Dragons film won’t be entirely dashed after the mediocre box office results of Honor Among Thieves, as Chris Pine has hinted that he’s heard that another film is coming.
In conversation with GamesRadar+, Pine has mentioned the chance of the films coming back – and he expects it could happen. This comes after Paramount+ confirmed a direct-to-order spin-off series in February 2022 and the directors discussed a possible expanded franchise.
Pine sat down to talk about Disney’s Wish as his next film and says of another film: “I’ve heard rumors about it, but I don’t know anything yet. But I’m pretty confident it can happen.”
Pine wants to be in more D&D films
In the same conversation, Pine didn’t beat around the bush when it came to his intention to return as Edgin – when asked if he would come back, he simply said: “absolutely.“Well, that’s settled then.
It could be a bit of a gamble Paramount Pictures CEO Brian Robbins previously said this diversity A sequel would be possible, but only with a smaller budget. Honor Among Thieves earned $208 million on a budget of $150 million, meaning there wasn’t much margin.
We’d be happy to see hPine star in a new D&D movie again, to be honest – after all, the nerds who played the tabletop game before it was cool deserved it. Thanks to Stranger Things, but Pine et al. I’ll take it from here.
