Joe Manganiello Wrote A DUNGEONS & DRAGONS Script
Did you know that Joe Manganiello was a big Dungeons & Dragons fan? Me neither! In an interview with MTV’s Happy Sad Confused podcast, the Magic Mike star revealed he has a script for a potential Dungeons & Dragons film. Isn’t that kinda awesome?
Apparently, he went to a Dungeons & Dragons creative summit to talk with their creative team (They’re called Wizards of the Coast in case you were wondering.) in order to talk shop. He went to talk about how to shape the film, how it should go, etc. He goes on to say this about it:
“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.”
Hey, you have to applaud Joe. He took a passion of his and made it into something tangible and creative. Writing a feature ain’t easy, and it sounds like he put a lot of thought into it.
Although he wrote the script for himself, he is shopping it around in case you were wondering. He stated that he’s “talking to the right parties”. However, there is already a Dungeons & Dragons film in development with rumours that Ansel Elgort might lead, and unfortunately, there is already a script written. But hey, there could still be a chance Joe could be involved in some way.
What do you think of the thought of a script written by Joe Manganiello for D&D? Do you think he plays with Vin Diesel? Did you know that Vin Diesel loved him some D&D too? Let us know what you think in the comments!
