A few months ago, rumors for the casting of the upcoming Warcraft movie started popping up, and one of the first names attached was Colin Farrell. IGN caught up with the actor and asked about the project, and what its production status is.

"Donít know whatís happening, man. I read the script, if thatís any use to you, and itís amazing....Duncan was cool. I sat with Duncan for awhile and read the script, loved the script, and we was as cool as can be. I donít know whatís happening with the film. I donít know where they are in the process...Itís just a world that I never explored ó and itís a really big and fantastical world. I canít imagine what he, being as visually gifted as he is, Duncan, and what he did on Moon with, like, a dime, I canít imagine what heíd do with this Warcraft."

When asked what character he might be playing, Farrell replied:

"Can I? I probably shouldnít. I donít even know, actually, Iíll just say that! I donít even know. We were just talking, and Duncan just said, ďThere might be something in it for you!Ē And I said, ďCatering?Ē [Laughs]"

Farrell is just one of many names linked to the project, which is said to have four lead characters. Paula Patton and "Vikings" star Travis Fimmel are also rumored to be in negotiations for the film which will center on Anduin Lothar versus Durotan, Human and Orc heroes from the original real-time strategy games. The movie will also be focused largely in the Eastern Kingdoms of Azeroth.

Set to be directed by Duncan Jones, Warcraft has Thomas Tull and Jon Jashni producing for Legendary along with Blizzard and Atlas Entertainment's Charles Roven and Alex Gartner. Charles Leavitt wrote the script. Warcraft is currently set for release on December 18, 2015. The first set of concept art from the upcoming film was showcased at BlizzCon 2013.
