Joe Mangeniello is back – he has a passion for Dragonlance, and a script.
In this interview he expands on the interview he did with MTV a few months back:
“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.”
It sounds like he’s got his heart and his priorities in the right place. He popped in on the official D&D podcast to talk about how the game and acting earlier this year, he’s sat in with the Critical Role team, and he participated in the Stream of Annihilation event this month.
It’s obvious he really loves D&D, and wants to do well by the community. I hope that the popularity of the game, and tabletop in general, can help him garner some investors. In the mean time you’ll be able to see Joe in the next season of Force Grey – Lost City of Omu – that starts up in a few weeks.
Do you want to see this movie get made?
