Duncan Jones to Direct the Warcraft Movie!

January 30, 2013


Moon and Source Code helmer Duncan Jones will direct the Warcraft movie for Legendary Pictures (upcoming Man of Steel & Pacific Rim), according to The Hollywood Reporter. Sam Raimi was previously attached to direct the adaptation of the Blizzard Entertainment video game property.

The "Warcraft" universe is a rich fantasy setting that revolves around the epic conflict between the opposing forces of the Horde and the Alliance. Since its debut in 1994, "Warcraft" has developed a loyal following across the globe, with several bestselling, award-winning PC games and a range of popular licensed products including novels, action figures, apparel, comic books, board games, and more. "World of Warcraft," Blizzard Entertainment's subscription-based massively multiplayer online role-playing game set in the Warcraft universe, is the most popular game of its kind in the world.

Thomas Tull and Jon Jashni are producing for Legendary along with Blizzard and Atlas Entertainment's Charles Roven and Alex Gartner. Charles Leavitt wrote the script.

Legendary is eyeing a fall 2013 start for a 2015 release.
