A Warcraft film has been in the works since the dawn of time (feels like it). Almost every director under the sun has had a go at bringing this popular video game franchise to the big screen, the likes of Sam Raimi and James Cameron. But now it seems that director Dunan Jones, who is perhaps best known for his films Source Code & Moon will finally bring the huge game to the big screen. Man Of Steel producer, Charles Roven (who is producing Warcraft also) had a bit too say on the topic.

Producer, Charles Roven On The Project:

?First quarter 2014 we?re going to shoot that movie.? He went on to add, ?We?re moving forward; obviously Legendary is making that film and I?m having a great time with Duncan.?

With no release date in sight, expect a late 2015 release date. With Comic-Con coming in the next couple of months we are bound to get some castings and more within the following weeks!

Warcraft is a franchise of video games, novels, and other media originally created by Blizzard Entertainment. The series is made up of four core games: Warcraft: Orcs & Humans, Warcraft II: Tides of Darkness, Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos, and World of Warcraft. The first three of these core games are in the real-time strategy genre, where opposing players command virtual armies in battle against each other or a computer-controlled enemy. The last and best selling title of the franchise is a Massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG). Expansion sets were also released for multiple games in the series, each adding more content to each game as an effort to expand the product lifespan of each

Description of SDCC Footage:

A strange, alien desert with a growing green sky. A storm is coming in. A knight is standing there. He draws his sword.. There's a discarded suit of armor. He takes the shield from a skeleton. It's World of Warcraft! He's gearing up. Creatures are coming over the hills. We follow a camera on an Orc as it moves to take, moving faster and faster. Just as the Orc's blade comes down, it cuts to the logo!

The lead character seems set to be Khadgar, a young consul to the Kirin Tor senate, rulers of the city of Dalaran. Early in the story, Khadgar is charged with investigating a series of crimes that have rocked the city, but as we go on, we?ll find that his mission leads him into a quest beyond the city walls. 

 

Then there?s his mentor, Medivh, a mage and the sworn protector of mankind against demonkind. Johnny Depp was rumoured for a role almost as soon as the film was announced, and while I can?t find any substance to those rumours, at least not right now, I?m sure this would be the part he was up for. Not quite Gandalf meets Captain Jack Sparrow, he?s actually a more morally complex character than will be at first revealed. Expect him to be a scene stealer, too. 

 

And set on a collision course with Medivh is Lothar, The Lion of Azeroth, leader of the King?s Army. He?s brave but maybe a touch too bold. In a straight down the middle version of the film, this might be the role The ?Dwayne Johnson? Rock would go up for, though I?m imagining somebody like Mark Strong could carry just the right amount of pride and gravity. 

 

And then there are the King and his Lady too, playing key supporting roles. Expect to see some well-loved actors in these parts.

Looks like standard generic fantasy to me.

Wonder if Michele Morrow was able to get the role she wanted.

Has promise, but reading that description I REALLY hope that it is something a little more exciting then that. TBH im kinda still p**sed that Blizzard haven't come out and did a full length CGI movie instead using the voice actors from the animatics. Since this movie was announced way back in 08, 5 years production would of been plently of time for them to create that. And OMG if they did, it would of been EPIC. Now im thinking this will be a copy more of less of the The Lord of the Rings movies, but more boring. :/
