The film stars Chris Pine, Michelle Rodriguez, Regé-Jean Page, Justice Smith, Hugh Grant, Chloe Coleman, Jason Wong, Daisy Head, and Sophia Lillis. Regé-Jean Page is known for Shonda Rhimes’s wildly popular Bridgerton on Netflix, the actor wrapped his part in the first week of August.

The film's release date has also changed significantly; it was originally scheduled for July 23, 2021. The release date was then pushed back to May 27, 2022, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and then to November 19, 2021, to accommodate the release of Mission: Impossible 7. The release date was pushed back to March 3, 2023, earlier this year (current release date).

I mean, based on the track record of D&D movies, the batting average isn't good. I'm hopeful for this one, but my expectations are tempered.

I've been saying for years that IMO the best kind of D&D movie would be structured as a heist rather than as a quest. Fingers crossed that I didn't wish on a monkey's paw and it turns out to be true!

My understanding is that him getting producer credit dates back to the resolution of the lawsuit that went on when this movie was first announced however many ages ago that was.

Wow! Courtney Solomon is a producer. What kind of deal did he get with TSR all those years ago that he gets a producer credit on this, and I guess all DnD movies?

Yeah, we've never had crappy movies based on, say Marvel characters, that later on were redone and turned in to a multi billion dollar franchise.
But there's a big difference between Marvel and D&D as IP. Marvel is story, characters, and narrative. D&D is a game.
At best, it would be like a video game movie adaptation - Resident Evil, Sonic, or Double Dragon. But at its worst, it would be like a board game adaptation like Battleship or Rock 'em Sock 'em Robots - and we saw how well those "game to movies" adaptations worked.

I remember how excited I was about the first movie. I'm still hurting.

Can't be hurt again.
My clearest memory of seeing Dungeons & Dragons in the theater was thinking that when a Wayans brother dies in a movie and the film goes DOWNHILL after that point, something has gone horribly wrong.

Note that I have since completely changed my outlook re: the Wayans brothers, but the memory is still etched in my brain.

A ridiculously good deal. Solomon's aunt, Lorraine Williams, was in charge of TSR at the time and gave her nephew a deal too good for a seasoned producer, much less someone with Solomon's lack of experience. Nepotism, gotta love it!

EDIT: Turns out I was misremembering . . . Solomon was friends with Flint Dille, who was related to Williams. Solomon wasn't.

Sure, there were some pre-MCU stinkers, but we also had Blade, X-Men, the original Hulk TV show, Raimi's Spider-Man. With D&D, it's like if all the prior movies were the Reb Brown Captain America.

Don't get me wrong, I want them to knock this one out of the park. I am just keeping my expectations low so I'll hopefully be pleasantly surprised.

I've never heard that the two were related. It would certainly explain how an inexperienced kid got the job.

What was really irritating, was that the TSR promotion for the movie cast Solomon as a plucky kid daring to dream big, walking into TSR's offices and asking for the entirety of D&D's movie rights, with no experience but an impressive pitch . . . . . and it was just nepotism.
