Warcraft Movie Gets New Director

Variety is reporting that Legendary Pictures has signed Duncan Jones to direct the Live-action Warcraft movie. The only movie I've seen that Duncan Jones has directed was "Source Code" and I'm wondering if this director will make something that fans will enjoy. Its a shame Sam Raimi backed out while working on his Oz movie. I know not everyone is a fan of Sam Raimi, but I think he would have made something amazing out of Warcraft.

I have no interest in WOW but damn, Duncan is an AMAZING director. Source Code was good but Moon was fantastic. UNFORTUNATELY, I'll now have to watch this.

I will be surprised it it ever happens, 

 

WoW is still the number 1 mmo. But the game is past its half life, a movie of WoW calibre will take at least 2 years to make, In which WoW will be well into its next expansion and loosing even more subs

WoW fans will be less then and any non WoW fans will think it is a LoTR rip off, and will probably not watch it

So I will be suprised if it actually gets off the ground

 

Now if it was made CG, it would massively reduce costs on actors and sets, and there latest CG sequences are fantastic (SC2 trailer being an example)

 

considering the movie was announced years ago. with the game story is constantly changing, so the question will be how will the movie influence the game, will it be a retelling of Warcraft or anything up to current lore or a side story, too many questions and no answers is another reason why I have lil faith in this making it to production

You make some very valid points. :tup:

 

Unless the movie was going to be made on the scale of Avatar with special effects and some damn good battle scenes and/or war, a CG movie would actually make more sense at this point.

 

I just hope this movie will not turn out like the Dungeons & Dragons movies that were on the Syfy channel. :crap:
