Besides a morsel of info about it in the trades a couple of months back there hasn't been much mentioned on the proposed "Dungeons and Dragons" sequel. I feared I dreamt it - darn nightmares - until I google searched and realized it was indeed mentioned.
I asked Marlon Wayans - who appeared in the first film - about it, and he says he hasn't heard about it, but definitely won't be a part of it. No Way.
Someone has got the specs though. CHUD and The Gaming Report have unearthed some sought-after (snigger) details on the sequel.
Apparently the film is going to be set 100 years after the first film (I guess
that's how they'll explain the absense of Thora Birch and Jeremy Irons from
the film), won't feature Paris Hilton (rumoured for a role a while back)or an
amusing sidekick. The only cast member attached is Bruce Payne ["Passenger
57"] who'll reprise his role as
Says the latter site, "There are a few more items of note, but those will have to wait. The production and film itself sound to be already in much better shape than the first. From what we heard it sounds like a much better film than the first and should be more on par with what gamer's expectations were for the first movie release. The hope is that this will be the beginnings of a franchise of films. This is a real possibility from the sound of it and the gamer public may actually want more based on what we've learned.
Oh, the second thing.... After almost two years of negotiations it sounds like a Magic: the Gathering (Live Action) Movie is going to be made. Tom DeSanto of X-Men fame is involved in the writing and a few other big names. It still has bit more to go before all the details are worked out but from what we understand more news will be coming in the next few months."
