Close your eyes and imagine what the writer of a D&D might look like…
… like this, apparently:
Joe Manganiello – known for his roles in True Blood and Magic Mike – has co-written a Dungeons and Dragons script. He even consulted with Wizards of the Coast to ensure he represents the classic RPG’s universe in just the right way. He talked a little bit about it in a recent interview with MTV:
“Obviously, there’s a spectacle. There’s dragons breathing fire and lightning. But what makes a great superhero or fantasy movie is the human aspect. It’s got to be about something. We root for those characters in Game of Thrones. Fellowship of the Ring was about friendship, this undying love for your friends. That’s something everyone can identify with. When a movie is about something human and real emotionally people are going to want to see. Then you get some dragons breathing fire, and hey, I’m in.”
Sounds like he’s approaching it in a serious manner and wants to make something that’s not a (total) dumpster fire. At the moment it’s just a draft, but who knows… this could happen.
But, most importantly, will it have dance scenes?
Are you be up for a new D&D movie?
