A long time ago…

The word on the street was that Spider-Man director, Sam Raimi was going to direct a World of Warcraft movie.  Then he wasn’t.  Then Duncan Jones was announced as the director, and since January announcement, we’ve heard nothing.

Until now…

Now we learn that producer Charles Roven plans to put the epic MMORPG flick before the lens in the first quarter of 2014.

That is at least something.  Even though we don’t know what the story is about or when it will be released (estimates are 2015), this tidbit of information should give fans of the game enough to chew on for the next couple of months.  Comic Con International hasn’t released the programming schedule for the San Diego convention, but it wouldn’t surprise me if we learned more about the flick then.

    Hasn’t that ship already sailed? I got bored with WoW about 2 years ago and haven’t played since. Talk about coming late to the party… They should let it drop and do something more interesting.

    • Hollywood didn’t get the memo that just because you don’t like something means it shouldn’t be done. Sorry, I’ll be sure to forward the memo.

      Actually, I can’t stand WoW personally (nothing against the game itself or the players, I just don’t enjoy it personally), but I do think a movie using the Warcraft lore could be pretty interesting.

        Given the history of how “great” movies based on video games have been, I do not hold out any hope for this. WoW once had 12 million players world wide, which was phenominal, they should have put the movie out then, not now when the game is in decline. We can’t convince them to bring Firefly back, but, by Arthis’ adnoids, they’re determined to go ahead with THIS potential turkey… sigh…
