Dungeons & Dragons: Honor of the Thieves e the positive experience of the cast
To say there was little waiting for Dungeons & Dragons: Honor of the Thieves equates to an understatement, the film immediately attracted press and fan attention due to its unsuccessful precedents, high-budget profile and cast involved in the operation. For this reason the panel of the last SDCC was rather expected.
In taking part, Rodriguez said that the convention audience who came to launch the film was one of the more demanding I’ve ever had anything to do with, precisely because of the name Dungeons & Dragons hides within itself alegacy of over 40 years. It was therefore very important that the production of the film took this element into account.
Speaking of Comic Con, the actress compared the experience to that of face a monsterbecause he knew he would have to undergo the scrutiny and criticism of enthusiasts. Rodriguez later admitted to feeling lucky in having dealt with success this monster because most fans welcomed positively both the trailer and the clips shown exclusively during the fair.
The priority was therefore to approach respectful way Dungeons & Dragons and speaking of this aspect Rodriguez has praised the work done by the directors, John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein, who have proven to be profound connoisseurs of the game. Reading the script it quickly emerged that the directors really cared to this project, for the many details and direct references to the original material.
For Hugh Grant the script was amazing, he did not expect to fall in love with this project, as he himself considers himself an extremely critical person who never likes anything. For Grant, it was a character and a movie a lot fun to work for and for which he feels only positive feelings.
