Since its inception, Dungeons and Dragons, or DnD as fans like to call it, has always dominated the tropes of mainstream media and popular culture. From inspiring most contemporary role-playing games (RPGs) to being streamed by Twitch and YouTube users, the billion-dollar tabletop game franchise has grown by leaps and bounds to the present-day behemoth that is loved by millions.
So, it came as no surprise when fans were elated about Paramount Pictures rebooting the DnD film franchise. The director duo of Goldstein and Daley was hired to spearhead the project with a slated release date of March 3, 2023.
What Is the Dungeons and Dragons Movie About?
Delayed thrice due to the Covid pandemic, the Dungeons and Dragons movie is set to revolutionize the fantasy-adventure genre with its over-the-top visual effects and groundbreaking storytelling.
Talking about the story, not much is known about the plot of DnD except that it is set in the fictional world of the tabletop game. The movie will take viewers through the adventures of an escaped thief and his barbarian companion played by Chris Pine and Michelle Rodriguez, respectively.
Rodriguez is Letty from the Fast and Furious franchise while we all know about Chris Pine, right? The Star Trek star is famous for his dedicated acting methods and has his own die-hard fanbase, known as the Pine Nuts, swooning over his good looks. The Golden Globe Award winner, Hugh Grant, is set to play the antagonist.
So, as you can see, the Dungeons and Dragons movie is not at all short of a star-studded cast. These actors will be delivering an adventure-filled performance in the backdrop of Irish fields and mountains. While fantasy movies primarily take advantage of CGI and props for storytelling, let’s not forget about the stunt-filled action sequences that will truly be bringing this epic world to life.
The Stunts Behind Dungeons and Dragons
As you must be aware, most film and televisions projects hire stunt coordinators to choreograph and perform the stunts in the production. From budgeting the stunt scenes to performing them, a team of stunt performers keeps the cast safe and ensures that every action scene, no matter how dangerous, is performed with the utmost safety and realism.
Paramount has hired the legendary stunt coordinator, Pete Miles, who will be working closely with members of our very own team of Total Stunts in providing the stunts for the film. If you don’t know who Pete Miles is, well, he is the guy behind the action scenes of Hobbs & Shaw and Quantum Solace of the James Bond series.
So, whether it is the gunfight scenes featuring Mr. Bond or the epic car chase scenes that have become synonymous with the Fast & Furious franchise, Pete Miles has choreographed it all and he is here to bring realism to the Dungeons and Dragons movie.
