Sam Raimi Not Attached to World of Warcraft Movie Anymore

While news that Blizzard is looking to turn its highly-successful MMORPG World of Warcraft into a movie isn’t new, the fact that Sam Raimi is now officially OFF the project is.

Sam Raimi is, of course, famous for directing the Evil Dead horror series and for helming the Spider-Man trilogy for Sony Pictures.

This news was revealed by Raimi himself at this year’s Comic-Con.

Actually, they don’t have me directing World of Warcraft anymore because when I took the Oz job, they had to move on to another director…they had to start making it.

Raimi did not reveal which director will be directing World of Warcraft in his stead. Hopefully, it will be someone with his pedigree, no?
