After a legal battle between Sweetpea Entertainment and Hasbro over ownership rights, the film was transferred to Paramount, according to Variety.
Chris McKay was recruited as a director before leaving the project. In 2019, Goldstein and Daley arrived.
The plot details behind this latest version of the game are being kept under wraps.
Dungeons and Dragons was first adapted in 2000. This version starred Thora Birch, Kristen Wilson, Justin Whalin, Marlon Wayans and Jeremy Irons.
The project, which was produced by New Line, did not perform well at the box office.
