Warcraft Movie – News Bite.

28 Jul

Hi guys and girls, david here. ๐Ÿ™‚

I have some news for all the die-hard Warcraft fans out there.

As most of you know by now, Blizzard is currently working with Legendary Pictures to bring Warcraft to the big screen.

Woop Woop ๐Ÿ™‚

Latest new on this is that they have signed the AMAZING Sam Raimi to direct the movie.

Most of you will remember him as the very talented director that brought us such movies as The Evil Dead, 30 Days of Night, Spiderman 1,2,3 and most recent, the horrifying Drag Me To Hell.

With such an amazing director at the steering wheel we can definitely expect great things from the movie.

Now to find out who will be playing the lead roles. Any ideas? ๐Ÿ™‚

As for those of you who don’t yet know about Warcraft, well firstly I feel very sorry for youย  ;-), secondly this is basically what it’s about;

Warcraft is set in a rich fantasy world that revolves around an age old conflict between the forces of the Horde and the Alliance. Think LotR without the whole ring business, just the conflict between the two sides, skewed representation i know but at least that points you in the right direction. ๐Ÿ™‚

The first game was released in 1994 and developed a loyal following ever since, and now includes a range of award-winning PC games and products such as novels, action figures, comic books etc. The latest expansion to World of Warcraft, Wrath of the Lich King was crowned the fastest selling game of all time with 2.8 million copies sold in its first 24 hours after release. ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

Now if that does not give you an indication of the mammoth sized name Sam will have to live up to, nothing will. ๐Ÿ™‚

If you want to read the full press release you can find on Blizzard’s home page, here.

I will also try to keep you updated with any further development in line with the cast, crew and release dates.

Have a great day. ๐Ÿ˜‰
