Chris Pine Says D&D Sequel is Likely Happening As Soon as Everyone is Free, Definitely Soon Though

Fans of the film, Dungeons and Dragons: Honor Among Thieves, recently got some good news when Chris Pine commented about the possibility of a sequel. While he didn’t come right out and say it, he did hint at the desire to make another movie as long as everyone is available at the same time.

“We’re really excited about the idea of doing another film, but we’re having a little trouble with scheduling right now,” Pine said when pressed for an update. “It’s just super tough with everyone being so busy. Like, I’m super swamped with family stuff and I know Justice Smith has his bowling league on Wednesday nights so we can’t film then.”

There was some concern as to whether or not the studio would even greenlight a sequel after a lackluster Box office performance. However, fan support and potential streaming revenue have been enough for the studio to consider it, though finding a location has proved quite the obstacle.

“It’s just hard finding a space and time that works for everyone,” said a source from Paramount. “We have one studio in Los Angeles that works most days but not on Thursdays and Fridays, and we can’t film on Mondays because Michelle Rodriquez has her quilting club on Monday nights, and Monday mornings are no good either because Chris Pine actually takes the early shift at a local soup kitchen. We could film in Atlanta but the studio over there actually doubles as a roller derby rink half the week so…”

These obstacles haven’t seemed to discourage the cast as they’re all in high spirits about making a sequel at all–ideally after the holiday season.

“Yeah, it’s really tough to get going anytime soon, what with the holidays and all,” Chris Pine said with a melancholy smile. “We couldn’t start filming last month because everyone was all over the country seeing family and the soup kitchen was packed for Thanksgiving so I was putting in extra time there, not to mention how busy it’ll be for Christmas. 

“We’ll definitely start filming again–at least I’m pretty sure we will–once schedules align. Worst case scenario we’ll just start over Zoom or Discord. Ah, wait, Regé-Jean Page doesn’t have a computer right now.”

We asked Director Jonathan Goldstein for a comment and he just told us he’d give us an official start date as soon as he was back from vacation, his online Spanish classes are over, and he doesn’t have to dog sit his neighbor’s Schnauzer anymore.
