We loved – really loved – Moon and Source Code from director Duncan Jones, so the idea of him handling something as massive and, let’s be honest, so far unfilmable, as Warcraft has us excited. Even those of us who don’t game.
Godzilla and Warcraft Producer Thomas Tull spoke with IGN about the project and seems very excited about it: “We’re very aware of the fact that in the mythology of Warcraft, there are two tribes – two big things to follow. We think you’re going to get a chance to look at both.”
On Duncan Jones’ involvement, he seems optimistic that the videogame to movie curse can be lifted: “Doing a videogame movie has not really been done well… bringing a filmmaker like Duncan on board to distill that and bring the incredible cast on board that he was able to get… we hope that when you see the first trailer for it, you’re going to say ‘OK, this is not what I was expecting.’ He’s an incredibly exciting filmmaker.”
You can expect footage to appear at SDCC later this year and Warcraft will hit screens in March, 2016.
