AceShowbiz - The first look at the characters from "Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves" in costume has been revealed at San Diego Comic-Con 2022. At the movie event, footage of characters played by Chris Pine, Rege-Jean Page and more cast members was displayed.
Chris' character seems to be a bard, shredding on a lute before shredding the air with a sword. As for Rege-Jean, he has a dagger, a sword and a heavy suit of armor as it seems that he may be playing a rogue.
Michelle is likely playing a warrior, which fits her typical performance style. Justice and Sophia's characters will be the ones to bring the magic, while Hugh's character seems to be a sagacious professorial type.
Paramount Pictures will pull the curtain back on "Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves" during a Comic-Con Hall H panel on Thursday afternoon, July 21. Various cast members and directors Jonathan Goldstein and John Francis Daley are expected to make appearances.
Based on Hasbro's "Dungeons & Dragons", the Paramount and eOne feature is being produced by Jeremy Latcham, Brian Goldner and Nick Meyer, with executive producers Denis L. Stewart, Goldstein, Francis, Chris, Zev Foreman and Greg Mooradian.
While the film is a fantasy, Chris has hinted at a rather light-hearted tone, stating that it draws inspiration from "Game of Thrones", but also from works like "The Princess Bride", "Monty Python and the Holy Grail" and "The Goonies".
"There was a lot of laughs. The way that I've been describing it, it's like 'Game of Thrones' mixed with a little 'Princess Bride', just a smidge of 'Holy Grail'. It's somewhere in that ballpark," the 41-year-old actor explained. "It's a lot of fun. It's got a lot of thrills. It's poppy, it's eighties heartfelt, there's a bit of 'Goonies' in there."
Chris further teased, "My character, he's the ultimate party planner. I think it's going to be really good. I mean, who f**king knows, but I think we got a good shot and John and John are killer guys." The "Star Trek" actor added, "They know comedy and they know the heart and we had a great cast and we had a good time making it. And that's all you can ask for."
