“The Fault in Our Stars” and “Divergent” hunk Ansel Elgort is in early negotiations to star in the cinematic reboot of the “Dungeons and Dragons” fantasy franchise at Warner Bros. Pictures.
The story follows a warrior and his band of mystical creatures as they embark on a dangerous journey to find a mythical treasure. Actor Vin Diesel has previously expressed interest in being part of the film as he has been a fan of and played the game for over two decades.
Rob Letterman directs the project from a script by David Leslie Johnson (“The Conjuring 2”). Brian Goldner and Stephen Davis, Courtney Solomon, Allan Zeman, and Roy Lee are producing. Elgort most recently wrapped work on Edgar Wright’s “Baby Driver”.
