- THE WORLD OF WARCRAFT
Moon and Source Code helmer Duncan Jones will direct the Warcraft movie for Legendary Pictures (upcoming Man of Steel & Pacific Rim), according to The Hollywood Reporter. Sam Raimi was previously attached to direct the adaptation of the Blizzard Entertainment video game property.
The "Warcraft" universe is a rich fantasy setting that revolves around the epic conflict between the opposing forces of the Horde and the Alliance. Since its debut in 1994, "Warcraft" has developed a loyal following across the globe, with several bestselling, award-winning PC games and a range of popular licensed products including novels, action figures, apparel, comic books, board games, and more. "World of Warcraft," Blizzard Entertainment's subscription-based massively multiplayer online role-playing game set in the Warcraft universe, is the most popular game of its kind in the world.
This is certainly one tough property to adapt into a film, and I have to admit that my expectations on seeing a good adaption of this game is quite low so lets hope that Duncan Jones manages to make this film great.
Thomas Tull and Jon Jashni are producing for Legendary along with Blizzard and Atlas Entertainment's Charles Roven and Alex Gartner. Charles Leavitt wrote the script.
