Dungeons & Dragons Film Recruits Former Marvel Exec Producer

Entertainment One has signed a first-look agreement with producer and former Marvel Studios executive Jeremy Latcham, with Dungeons & Dragons as the first project under the deal.

Entertainment One made the announcement Wednesday, noting that the partnership with Latcham follows eOne’s acquisition by Hasbro earlier this year and will further power eOne’s ability to produce wide-appeal film and television content designed for a global audience from Hasbro’s library. Dungeons & Dragons is managed by Wizards of the Coast, a Hasbro subsidiary.

 

Jonathan Goldstein and John Francis Daley are attached to write and direct the film, which is co-produced by eOne, Hasbro’s global entertainment studio, and Paramount. This film marks the first project for eOne with Paramount since eOne’s acquisition by Hasbro.

Latcham spent 13 years at Marvel Studios, where he executive produced Spider-Man: HomecomingAvengers: Age of UltronThe Avengers and Guardians of the Galaxy.
