Ansel Elgort in early talks to star in Dungeons & Dragons

Ansel Elgort Dungeons & Dragons

Unfortunately I've gone through my life without playing, observing, or really understanding much at all about Dungeons & Dragons. My only exposure to the franchise comes from the much ridiculed feature film adaptation of the same name which starred Jeremy Irons on a steady diet of ham and scenery. Thankfully a new DUNGEONS & DRAGONS film from GOOSEBUMPS director Rob Letterman is in the works which should hopefully serve as a better translation of the game.

A star for the upcoming film may have already been found as Deadline is reporting that Ansel Elgort (THE FAULT IN OUR STARS) is currently in early negotiations to star in the project. With the DIVERGENT franchise winding down, this could be the next big step for Elgort. David Leslie Johnson (THE CONJURING 2) penned the script for the film which Warner Bros. considers to be "top priority." As for Elgort, he recently completed work on Edgar Wright's BABY DRIVER in which he stars as "a talented, young getaway driver who relies on the beat of his personal soundtrack to be the best in the game. But after being coerced into working for a crime boss, he must face the music when a doomed heist threatens his life, love and freedom." BABY DRIVER is set for a March 17, 2017 release.

Make sure to check out our own Jason Adams' special DUNGEONS & DRAGONS installment of Awfully Good in order to fully appreciate just how...interesting...that first attempt at DUNGEONS & DRAGONS really was.

This could either be good or bad. My only exposure to D&D was only the BioWare Forgotten Realms videogames (Baldur's Gate, Icewind Dale, the awesome Neverwinter Nights), but I think any fantasy franchise can be epic if they trim down the lore and keep the story simple and understandable.

Is D&D even still a thing? I thought Warcraft kinda killed it off.
