The Fault In Our Stars' Ansel Elgort to lead new Dungeons and Dragons movie

Ansel Elgort, best known for his role in The Fault In Our Stars and the Divergent series, looks set to take a starring role in the new Dungeons and Dragons movie. 

A new movie based on the hugely successful role playing game has long been in development at Warner Brothers and, according to Deadline, Elgort, who recently missed out on the role of young Han Solo, is the frontrunner to lead the film. 

The movie, which will follow a warrior and his band of mystical creatures as they embark on a dangerous journey to find a mythical treasure, has been written by Red Riding Hood and Wrath Of The Titans writer David Leslie Johnson. Rob Letterman, who had success earlier this year with Goosebumps, is attached to direct the movie. 

A previous movie based on the game was released into 2000 and starred Thora Birch and Jeremy Irons. Despite not being a box office success, it has produced a number of direct to DVD sequels, you can check out two of them here in our online store.
