Hugh Grant and Sophia Lillis are set to join the cast of Paramount's untitled film adaptation of the popular tabletop and video game 'Dungeons & Dragons'.
Hugh Grant has been cast as a villain in the adaptation directed by Jonathan Goldstein and John Francis, reports Variety.
The film also stars Chris Pine, Michelle Rodriguez, Justice Smith and Bridgerton star Rege-Jean Page.
Based on Hasbro's wildly popular game franchise developed by Wizards of the Coast, the 'Dungeons & Dragons' adaptation will dive into the game's magical world of elves, humans, bards, orcs — and of course, dragons.
However, it remains to be seen if the film's storyline will take place entirely in the game's fantasy world or involve the game-playing aspect.
More than 40 million fans have interacted with or played D&D since it was first published 46 years ago, including video games and livestream entertainment on Twitch and YouTube.
Grant recently starred in HBO's hit show 'The Undoing' and is currently in production on Guy Ritchie's latest project, the action thriller 'Five Eyes,' which marks their third collaboration.
