Former Marvel Studios executive Jeremy Latcham has partnered with new Hasbro-owned Entertainment One (eOne). Hasbro hopes the first look agreement will help produce popular film and television content from their IP library.
Latcham’s first project will be a film for Dungeons & Dragons. Jonathan Goldstein and John Francis Daley will write and direct the film, which is co-produced by eOne and Paramount.
“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,” said Latcham in a Hasbro press release.
“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.”
Latcham most recently produced 2018’s Bad Times at the El Royale. Before that, he spent thirteen years at Marvel Studios, where he executive produced Spider-Man: Homecoming, Avengers: Age of Ultron, Guardians of the Galaxy and Marvel’s The Avengers.
Latcham was the Associate Producer on the critically acclaimed blockbuster Iron Man and the Co-Producer on its sequel Iron Man 2.
