Tom Hanks' film debut was a drama about Dungeons & Dragons

Ryan Lambie Mar 29, 2017

Mazes And Monsters provided the first feature role for a young Tom Hanks in 1982 - and warned against the perils of Dungeons & Dragons...

Where there's great popularity, there's sometimes an equal and opposite backlash. Pokemon has occasionally been accused of promoting everything from Satanism to animal cruelty. The book Why Knock Rock, published in 1984, warned of the morally corrosive dangers hidden in the music of Judas Priest, Kiss and Led Zeppelin.

Before all this, there was the moral panic surrounding Dungeons & Dragons. From humble beginnings, the role-playing game quickly became a phenomenon in the 1970s, taking the company behind it - Tactical Studies Rules, founded by Gary Gygax - from a tiny cottage industry to a 600-strong firm by the end of the decade.

Dungeons & Dragons' brilliance lies in its freeform design; with only a few raw materials - dice, counters, a rulebook - the game conjures

Anne Hathaway to Lead ‘Live Fast Die Hot’, Elizabeth Olsen Joins ‘Kodachrome,’ and More

Soon to be seen in Nacho Vigalondo‘s highly-anticipated Colossal at Tiff, and next year in the upcoming Ocean’s Eight alongside a massive cast, Anne Hathaway has another project in her sights. She’s signed on to star in and produce an adaptation of Jenny Mollen‘s novel Live Fast Die Hot according to Variety, which is not a cross-over spin-off on the Die Hard and Fast & Furious series.

In fact, it is a collection of personal essays from the author that delve into adulthood, responsibility, and proving that you can travel alone without ending up in a Taken-esque scenario. Mollen herself has a particular set of skills as a writer and actress who lives in New York, who has appeared in films such as Crazy, Stupid, Love and TV episodes on Wilfred and Girls. The adaptation is in association with Warner Bros and one can check back for more details.

Elizabeth Olsen Joins Jason Sudeikis, Ed Harris Road-Trip Drama ‘Kodachrome’
Elizabeth Olsen has joined the road-trip drama “Kodachrome” opposite Jason Sudeikis and Ed Harris.

The actress had been linked to “Kodachrome” before the Cannes Film Festival, but producers had not confirmed her involvement with the project until Friday. Shooting is starting this week in Toronto.

Mark Raso (“Copenhagen”) is directing from a script by Jonathan Tropper. The film is based on A.G. Sulzberger’s 2010 New York Times article “For Kodachrome Fans, Road Ends at Photo Lab in Kansas” about a father and son who take a road trip to Kansas in order to develop photographs at Kodak’s last Kodachrome lab before it closes its doors for good.

Producers are Tropper; Gotham Group’s Ellen Goldsmith-Vein and Eric Robinson; 21 Laps Entertainment’s Dan Levine and Shawn Levy; and Leon Clarance of Motion Picture Capital, which is fully financing. Jo Monk and Dan Cohen are executive producing.

Elizabeth Olsen Joins Ed Harris For Road Trip Drama Kodachrome

During her downtime from the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Elizabeth Olsen tends to fill her slate with a host of intriguing projects. Coming off the barnstorming Age of Ultron, it was musical drama I Saw the Light that offered the actress some respite from superhero fare last year and, in continuing that trend, Olsen has lined up the likes of Ingrid Goes West, Wind River and now Kodachrome, a road trip drama hailing from director Mark Raso (Copenhagen).

The Hollywood Reporter has the scoop, confirming that the actress has joined Ed Harris and Jason Sudeikis in the feature, one the centers on “a record label boss who embarks on a road trip across the U.S. in order to fulfill his father’s dying wish and have a roll of Kodachrome film developed, only to find there’s just one remaining shop accepting them.”
