Ever since starring in Bridgerton, Regé-Jean Page has become a household name. And now he’s landed a lead in the film adaptation of Dungeons & Dragons.

The film, an adaptation of the game franchise, already cast Chris Pine, Justice Smith, and Michelle Rodriguez. Johnathan Goldstein and John Francis Daley, who worked on the scripts for Spider-Man: Homecoming and Horrible Bosses together, will direct and write the script from a draft by Michael Gilio.

Dungeons & Dragons has been around for more than four decades and has been turned into video games, an animated TV show, and a few movies. This will be its first major studio film.

In addition to starring as the Duke of Hastings in Bridgerton, Page’s other credits include For the People, Mortal Engines, and Sylvie’s Love. The actor just announced he will be hosting Saturday Night Live and he was recently nominated for a Screen Actors Guild Award for Bridgerton.
