Warcraft movie has a viking for its lead

October 26th, 2013 by Edwin Torres Jr Comments

Well it seems that one of the four leads of Warcraft has been cast. Travis Fimmel, who’s best known for the History Channel series ‘Vikings’ is in talks to play for a lead role.

The news comes from Variety, who say that Fimmel is all but assured the lead role. The Australian actor has appeared in feature films before, but most of late seem to have gone direct to video, so this casting would be his big break.

It makes sense for them to go after an actor like Fimmel, as I’m sure they intend for this to be a franchise and they can get him on the cheap for multiple films.

Duncan Jones (Source Code) will direct the movie from a script by Charles Leavitt. Both Paula Patton and Colin Farell are in talks  but his deal is not as far along as hers.

Warcraft is scheduled to hit theaters December 18th, 2015.
