He also appeared in a number of TV series including Doctor Who, the Newcomers, and Robin of Sherwood.  

Chris Pine is set to star in the new Dungeons & Dragons movie according the Variety. Paramount and eOne, a division of Hasbro, signed Jeremy Latcham, formerly of Marvel Studios, to produce the movie back in May (see " Baby Steps: 'D&D' Movie Gets a Producer"), and the addition of Pine as a lead moves the project further along in the production process. Additionally, Paramount moved the release date for this movie back again from November 2021 to May 27,2022.
