A synopsis for the film reads: “A charming thief and a band of unlikely adventurers undertake an epic heist to retrieve a lost relic, but things go dangerously awry when they run afoul of the wrong people.
“Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves brings the rich world and playful spirit of the legendary roleplaying game to the big screen in a hilarious and action-packed adventure.”
Unveiling the trailer at today’s Comic-Con panel, directors Jonathan Goldstein and John Francis Daley talked about their personal history with the Dungeons & Dragons game.
“I have been an avid player since I was 14 years old when I acted on the show Freaks & Geeks,” Daley told the audience. “Anyone who plays D&D knows it’s not just a game. It is the feeling you get when you play the game” (via The Hollywood Reporter).
Based on Hasbro’s Dungeons & Dragons game, the Paramount and eOne feature is produced by Jeremy Latcham, Brian Goldner and Nick Meyer, with executive producers Denis L. Stewart, Goldstein, Daley, Pine, Zev Foreman and Greg Mooradian.
Speaking about what fans can expect from the plot, producer Latcham said: “There is a lot of questing in the movie, I can tell you that,” while Daley added: “There are a ton of Easter eggs loaded in there.”
