Warcraft Universe is the most explored fantasy world today, so the movie based on warcraft isn’t much of a surprise to me, but I would have really wanted a movie on Assassin’s Creed :P. Anyway today Blizzard and Legendary Pictures announced that they have secured Sam Raimi to direct the upcoming Warcraft movie. Speaking bout that during a press conference a Sam Raimi said:
“At its core, Warcraft is a fantastic, action-packed story,” said Raimi. “I am thrilled to work with such a dynamite production team to bring this project to the big screen.”
Yeah! Do bring this project to the big screen but make sure you don’t suck, I hope you don’t. And about production, more then famous producer of “The Dark Knight, and Batman Begins” Charles Roven is set to produce this movie along with Blizzard senior creative development VP, Chris Metzen, who will co produce.
Blizzard entertainment look more then optimistic about this project, speaking about this chief operating officer at Blizzard Paul Sams said:
“Blizzard Entertainment and Legendary Pictures have a shared vision for this film and we searched at length to find the very best director to bring that vision to life,” said Paul Sams, chief operating officer of Blizzard.
“From our first conversation with Sam, we could tell he was the perfect choice. Sam knows how to simultaneously satisfy the enthusiasts and the mainstream audience that might be experiencing that content for the first time. We’re looking forward to working with him to achieve that here.”
Not much was revealed during the above mentioned press conference, more details will be announced once the cast and crew is final. This new Game to Movie trend hasn’t been that successful you know, Hitman, and Street Fighter:The Legend of Chun Li just really were not good enough.
Lets say Hitman was able to keep some pride and perform reasonably but Legend of Chun Li was just amazingly sucky, seriously. I am not much sure about the latest Game to Movie Prince of Persia everyone is buzzing about.
When it comes to Game to Movie scenario, they mostly fail to create the respective action and thrill sequence that made the game worthy of being filmed but lets just cross our fingers because Blizzard are, well, let’s just say, good at what they do.
