Rege-Jean Page in Dungeons and Dragons | National life

Rege-Jean Page was cast in ‘Dungeons & Dragons’.

The ‘Bridgerton’ actor is said to have signed up for Paramount’s upcoming blockbuster film based on the popular fantasy RPG. Chris Pine, Michelle Rodriguez and Justice Smith also revealed this earlier this month.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Page will star in the feature film, though his part – and the plot of the film – has yet to be revealed.

Game Night duo Jonathan Goldstein and John Francis Daley will team up to direct and they will also write the latest version of the script based on an earlier draft by Michael Gilio.

The details of the plot have been kept secret for the time being, but the film is said to be “subversive with the game”. It was previously alleged that the film would focus on a warrior’s dangerous mission to find mythical treasure.

Jeremy Latcham is producing for eOne, Hasbro’s entertainment arm, while Brian Goldner is producing for Hasbro.

Dungeons & Dragons was designed by Gary Gygax and Dave Arneson and first published in 1974 by Tactical Studies Rules, Inc. (TSR). It is a tactical war game played with miniature mythical characters and platforms to create armies, kingdoms and weapons and polyhedral dice and are used to resolve random events.

The game was previously brought to the big screen in a 2000 film starring Marlon Wayans, Zoe McLellan and Jeremy Irons. However, the film was shot by critics and flopped at the box office.

Page, 31, rose to fame on the Netflix series ‘Bridgerton’ as the Duke of Hastings, and the show’s popularity made him the next James Bond.

Recently, however, he refused to rely on speculation.

He quipped, “‘Bridgerton’ is the only ‘B’ word I get to say – I won’t be talking about the other ‘B’ words!”
