Friday Flame Wars: WoW Movie Happening, How Can This Be Good?
The World of Warcraft movie, which has been in development hell for over seven years, may actually be happening. Yesterday, producer Charles Roven told /Film that the movie — simply titled Warcraft — is currently planned to shoot in early 2014.
“We’re moving forward; obviously Legendary is making that film and I’m having a great time with Duncan,” said Roven.
Duncan Jones (Moon, Source Code) was announced as director in late January of 2013, and it’s been known that Legendary Pictures is partnering with Blizzard on this title since its first announcement.
Even if this movie does somehow end up being made, the question remains — how good will it be? I’ve always loved Blizzard’s cinematics, and I’ve been a fan of Legendary ever since 300, but I’m nonetheless skeptical.
