2023's Dungeons & Dragons movie was another in a long line of adaptations that have brought the tabletop experience to the people, and we're eternally grateful to it for that.

Ever since Stranger Things, D&D has lost its uber-nerdy inaccessibility sheen, and since then, we've seen the movie, Baldur's Gate 3, and more bring the medium to more players. It's not just D&D doing it either, as Cyberpunk 2077 began as a tabletop title before it became a defining RPG game.

But now, it looks like tabletop RPG titles could be coming even further into the public consciousness, as the star of Honour Among Thieves has spoken on his hopes for a sequel.

It looks like fan hopes of another live-action Dungeons & Dragons movie might not be entirely dashed after middling box office returns for Honor Among Thieves, as Chris Pine has suggested that he's heard that another movie is coming.

In conversation with GamesRadar+, Pine has mentioned the chance of the films coming back - and he reckons it could happen. This comes after Paramount+ confirmed a straight-to-order spin-off series in February 2022 and the directors spoke about a potential expanded franchise. 

Sat down for a conversation about Disney's Wish as his next movie, Pine says of another film, "I've heard rumors about it, but I don't know anything yet. But I feel pretty confident that it may happen.

Pine wants in on more D&D movies

In the same conversation, Pine didn't beat around the bush when it comes to his intentions to return as Edgin - when asked if he'd come back, he says simply "absolutely." Well, that settles that, then.

It might be a bit of a gamble, as Paramount Pictures CEO Brian Robbins previously told Variety a sequel could happen, but only if it was on a smaller budget. Honour Among Thieves made $208 million against a reported $150 million budget, meaning there wasn't much wiggle room. 

We'd be lucky to see hPine back leading a new D&D movie, to be honest - after all, the nerds who have been playing the tabletop game since before it was cool have earned it. Thanks to Stranger Things, but Pine and co. will take it from here.
