The ‘Warcraft Movie‘ is an adaptation of the popular World of Warcraft video game. The movie has been in planning for 6 years now, but disagreements with exactly what the hell they want in the movie, has delayed it over and over again. Two years ago, Sam Raimi was a lock for the director and life was good. Then Same got pissed off at the creative differences between he, and the writers, and it all unraveled. Little is known about Warcraft’s story at present. It is to be set within the fictional world that millions of fans play in everyday, with the Horde and Alliance playing a part, as well as the overall mythology playing a part. No word as of yet as to the characters or what the actual plot will be, but I’m going to go out on a limb and say there’ll be some WAR.
Nutjob director Uwe Boll tried to buy the Warcraft movie script from Blizzard, and they immediately told him to ‘fuck off’.
‘We will not sell the movie rights, not to you… especially not to you. Because it’s such a big online game success, maybe a bad movie would destroy that ongoing income, what the company has with it.”
Warcraft, will be directed by Duncan Jones (Know for ‘Moon’ and Source Code). The movie is written by Charles Leavitt . Spider-Man and The Evil Dead director Sam Raimi is set to direct the adaptation, which gives hope that it will be fun and scary, as well as get the budget necessary to make the film.

World of Warcraft players in North America and Europe alone produce $800 million a year, and there are more players in Asia. That’s a lot of money.
The built in fanbase of devout crafters (?) will make the film a success. I think there’s something like 10 million players, and many of them are devout, so they might see the film more than once. If they also bring their friends, then the film could end up being huge.
Wait, they play World of Warcraft. They don’t have friends
Oh Snap. Did I just say that? Pwned.
