Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves Has Unexpected Game of Thrones Connection

There is little doubt that Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves brought viewers to an awesome new world where dragons can get pudgy. However, the film actually had a surprising connection to a world that we already know. It has just been confirmed that several scenes from the fantasy movie were filmed on the same set used in Game of Thrones.

Directors Jonathan Goldstein and John Francis Daley recently spoke to Collider about working on Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves. The co-directors confirmed that the movie was shot primarily in Iceland and Northern Ireland and that they had to reuse a specific location in the latter one. As it turns out, they had to make use of some interior sets from Game of Thrones' central city of King's Landing.

"The back lot was King's Landing, but as you recall if you've seen the show, King's Landing gets destroyed in the last episode. So, we rebuilt it," Daley said.

"We thought we were getting King’s Landing. Yeah, we got this totally demolished, sh*tty back lot with fire burns all over it," Goldstein added.

It's certainly interesting to know that Honor Among Thieves had to reuse a set that was previously used in Game of Thrones. Although it is still unclear which scenes were filmed on the former Kings Landing set, it's awesome to know that one fantasy series has a secret connection to the film based on the tabletop role-playing game.

Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves starred Chris Pine, Michelle Rodriguez, Regé-Jean Page, Justice Smith, Sophia Lillis, Daisy Head, and Hugh Grant. The film has turned out to be a huge success, bringing in over $38.5 million at the domestic box office during its opening weekend and around $71.5 million across the globe. The movie is now screening in theaters worldwide.
