eOne Inks First-Look Deal With Marvel Alum Jeremy Latcham
Entertainment One has inked a first-look deal with Marvel Studios alum Jeremy Latcham.
Latcham's first project under the pact will see him produce the Paramount-set Dungeons & Dragons movie, which has Jonathan Goldstein and John Francis Daley set to write and direct. Dungeons & Dragons is a property of Hasbro subsidiary Wizards of the Coast, and marks the first project for eOne with Paramount since eOne's acquisition by Hasbro earlier this year.

Latcham's 13 years with Marvel included executive producer credits on Guardians of the Galaxy and the first two Avengers films. His post-Marvel career most recently saw Latcham produce Bad Times at the El Royale.
"Jeremy is a massively talented producer with a track record of creating true-to-brand films with size and scope that resonate with audiences and excel on a global scale. In our exciting new era with Hasbro, we’re thrilled to begin this new partnership and look forward to sharing the amazing projects that are to come," eOne's president of film Nick Meyer said Wednesday in a statement.
Added Latcham: "Nick and the entire eOne team have welcomed me into the fold with open arms. Hasbro's incredibly rich library of beloved brands in addition to the opportunity to develop original material makes for a very exciting next step for me as a creative producer. My passion for telling stories steeped in heart, humor and spectacle aligns with D&D's decades of immersive, adventure-driven storytelling, and I am beyond excited to help John and Jonathan, eOne, Paramount and Wizards of the Coast bring this rich world to filmgoing audiences."
