“Star Trek” and “Wonder Woman” alum Chris Pine says he’s feeling good about the chances of a sequel to this year’s fantasy action-comedy “Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves”.

Pine starred as the bard Edgin in the film alongside Michelle Rodriguez, Rege-Jean Page, Justice Smith, Sophia Lillis, and Hugh Grant.

The project was based on the tabletop role-playing game and directed by “Game Night” duo Jonathan Goldstein and John Francis Daley who co-wrote the script with Michael Gilio.

The film landed very positive reviews and grossed over $208 million worldwide. Sadly it fell short of its break-even point at the box-office due to its $150 million budget.

Speaking with GamesRadar whilst promoting Disney’s animated film “Wish” in which he plays the villainous King Magnifico, Pine sounds fairly optimistic about a follow-up: “I’ve heard some rumors about it, but I don’t know anything yet. But I feel pretty confident that it may happen.”

Asked if he’d be happy to return, Pine responded: “Absolutely.” If one does go forward, it will likely be unconnected to a television series based on the original game that was in development at the Paramount+ service. Rawson Marshall Thurber is showrunner on that.
