Duncan Jones is taking on Legendary Pictures' adaptation of the popular video game universe.

The Warner Bros.-based production and finance outfit is eyeing a fall 2013 start and a 2015 release.
Looking forward to this. :bolian:

I have no interest in this movie aside from the fact that it may help a Starcraft movie be made sometime afterwards. That will be amazing.

I think this could actually be pretty cool. It's true that most video game movies so far have been utter crap, but unlike most video game movies so far, this one actually has a very good director attached, who's not only talented, but seems to be an avid gamer and a huge fan of the WarCraft series. It's entirely possible that his relative inexperience will allow the studio to interfere too much and somehow fuck it up, but I think there's at least a chance of this one being good.

I'm just a little bit sad that this means that Duncan Jones won't get to make that Blade Runner-esque sci-fi movie he had planned anytime soon.

Weren't we at this point a few years ago already, when Sam Raimi signed on?

^ I'm not sure they had a finished script, then, which they do now, apparently.


And here's already the first casting rumor: Johnny Depp

Does WoW even have a plot?

Le AV Club shoots first:

Jones’ recent work on Source Code makes him seem particularly well-suited to a game in which dudes who have no lives of their own become heroes by assuming the identities of others, then doing the same repetitive tasks over and over again while having awkward flirtations with whatever girl they can find. Also, strategy.

Ouch! :rommie:

I'm not holding my breath. I was disappointed after reading Raimi interviews over a few years that he dropped it. They should have done this at the height of Warcraft's popularity, though if it does turn out to be a reasonably okay movie I expect most who played at some point will check it out.

There are many involved and excellent lore stories in Warcraft that would make great movies.

The WarCraft series has excellent lore and a brilliant narrative. Blizzard has created an epic fantasy universe on par in quality with anything you'll find in print or on television. Of course, StarCraft is still way better. :)

I don't get the World Of Warcraft hate. If it is the community, okay whatever but Warcraft has been around a while, like 1994 and WoW came out in 2004. There is plenty of lore and even WoW has great stories built into the game, plus there are books, comics based upon the rich lore. Plenty of stories and I hope/think this movie will be great. :)

ETA: I hope Johnny Depp isn't playing Sylvanas. :p

I hope this will be as least as good as Prince of Persia.

I am dying here thinking about Depp as Sylvanas.. :guffaw:

No, he'll be a blood elf. I just hope it isn't human based lore primarily.
