Win a Role in the New D&D Movie

December 24th, 2010 by Ed Grabianowski

Did you know that there’s a new D&D movie in the works? It’s called Book of Vile Darkness, and you can actually win a walk-on role. Not only that, you get to create the character you’ll play in the movie. That’s a pretty cool contest.

Silver Pictures is the production house bringing this new D&D film to life. This is the company that produced Sherlock Holmes, V for Vendetta, and Ninja Assassin. Unfortunately they also produced the first D&D movie. All I can say to that is: this one can’t possibly be any worse than the first one.

Primary filming is happening in Eastern Europe (whose chief export for many years was, in fact, vile darkness), but there will be additional scenes shot in Louisiana. That’s where you come in. Use the new D&D Character Builder online tool (which, yes, means you have to subscribe to D&D Insider to enter the contest) to make a new character and write up to 100 words of description and backstory. That’s not a lot to go on, but if your character is judged the best, you’ll be flown to Louisiana, done up in makeup and costume and filmed in “an epic battle scene.”

Read the full entry details at Wizards’ official promotions page and see if your character is awesome enough for the silver screen.

    This is pretty god damned awesome (the contest I mean, though we can hope for the movie too). I’m not even going to attempt entering the contest, but it will be cool to see who ends up winning.

    mordicai – Let’s tell them to use the same director, and everything. That should up it’s chances.

    What? You’re not going to enter skinless Troian into the contest?
