Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves actor Hugh Grant revealed that he felt pretty annoyed at the movie’s Dragonborn in a behind-the-scenes interview. The movie hits theaters on March 31 and the cast is out everywhere to promote it. The fantasy film stars Chris Pine, Michelle Rodriguez, Regé-Jean Page, Hugh Grant, Justice Smith, and Sophia Lillis. Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves has been creating buzz with its trailer and the hints about the plot, but the behind-the-scenes looks shared by the actors has also increased audience anticipation.
In an interview with Fandango, the cast sat with correspondent Perri Nemiroff and talked about the upcoming Dungeons & Dragons movie. The interview involved a bunch of interesting behind-the-scenes stories, with the cast especially revealing what it was like to work with the manually operated Drangonborn on set. While the rest of the cast found the idea of acting with practical Dragonborn exciting and fun, Hugh Grant admitted that the creatures annoyed him. He was upset with the fact that the Dragonborn took the limelight away from him in the shots. Here is the full quote:
“I found them annoying. I remember doing a close-up and thinking, ‘I am rather good in this shot.’ And then I went to look at the monitor, to see how marvellous I’d been, and in the background one of these bloody dragon things walks through the background of the shot. And you think, ‘What’s that?’ And obviously no one’s listening or looking at me. They’re… I’m upstaged by this creature. So I would have cut all those out.”
Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves Sequel Potential
Given the franchise’s cultural influence and the Dungeons & Dragons movie cast’s immense audience appeal, not to mention the film’s humor and convincing visuals, there’s hope it will perform well at the box office. If that happens, then there’s a good chance a Dungeons & Dragons movie sequel will happen. The cast seemed hopeful about the idea and gave positive responses about working together again. Though Grant denied the possibility in his typical witty style, Page hinted at the countless possibilities that can happen in the future and a sequel might be one of them.
Speculation about Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves has been running wild with the little plot information available, so it’s hard to judge exactly what a sequel would explore. Still, the cast emphasized the vastness of Dungeons & Dragons lore as it is an ever-evolving world with various maps, creatures and much more that allows for a lot of story possibilities in the future.
A Dungeons & Dragons show is also in development at Paramount+, though whether this will tie in to the movie is still unknown. But if the movie proves to be hit, and especially if a sequel is ordered, connecting the two properties would be a wise movie. Though Hugh Grant seemed to have been upset about a Dragonborn stealing his limelight, it may just be the combination of effects and performances that lead Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves to getting a sequel.
