The fantasy classic is set to start shooting at Titanic Studios, Belfast in early 2021.

The latest reboot of the popular fantasy epic will be helmed by John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein (Spider-man: Homecoming), and reportedly stars Wonder Woman and Star Trek star Chris Pine, according to Deadline.

Hasbro/eOne and Paramount are jointly producing and financing, with eOne distributing in the UK and Canada, and Paramount the rest of the world.

A filming start date has yet to be confirmed, however Northern Ireland Screen Chief Executive, Richard Williams, said it will come as a “great start” to 2021 following what the he described as an “extremely challenging” year with the coronavirus pandemic.

“…everyone’s willingness to embrace the difficulties, limitations and challenges of working with Covid has meant that the sector has come through 2020 strongly and is well placed to grow again in 2021 and beyond,” Williams said.

“We already know next year will get off to a great start with Paramount Pictures having leased Titanic Studios as they prepare to shoot a new feature film, Dungeons & Dragons, here.”

Williams described 2020 as a year of “staggering resilience” within the screen industry:

“While delivery of content was heavily delayed in 2020, the lockdown has reconfirmed the global appetite for good content and with new content in short supply it was enjoyable to see The Fall reach the top of the ratings on Netflix again and Line Of Duty attract a whole new audience to its five-season boxset on the iPlayer.” 

“It was also great to see Artemis Fowl launch to millions of Disney Plus subscribers around the world…many projects including New Regency’s The Northman and Jed Mecurio’s Line Of Duty have finally wrapped,” he said.

“That all of these projects will reach audiences (in 2021) is down to hard work, discipline and determination on the part of the teams behind them.”

Filming is expected to commence on Dungeons & Dragons early in 2021.
