“At its core, ‘Warcraft’ is a fantastic, action-packed story. I am thrilled to work with such a dynamite production team to bring this project to the big screen,” Raimi said then.
Raimi was expected to develop the game adaptation while he was shooting Spider-Man 4. Of course, last Monday Sony made the big announcement that the “Spider-Man” franchise was going to be rebooted in 2012, leaving fans wondering if he would turn his attention fully to the Warcraft movie instead.
“It’s in development,” Tapert said. “We’re in the outline/story/script phase.”
“I don’t want to speak on Sam’s behalf, because the ‘Spider-Man’ thing happened so recently,” added Tapert. “I think he’s getting his feet under him and trying to decide. He might want to do a teeny, tiny small film, but I don’t know what he wants to do. I know he had a great time doing ‘Drag Me to Hell.'”
