Duncan Jones, director of Moon, Source Code and sometimes son of David Bowie, has taken on the massive job of bringing World of Warcraft to the big screen. The script was originally written by Robert Robat, who penned Saving Private Ryan. Charles Leavitt (Blood Diamond) has been brought on to rewrite the script.
Sam Raimi was supposed to direct the film, but had to drop out after multiple delays. Raimi moved on to direct Oz, The Great and Powerful with Oscar nominated stoner James Franco.
Warcraft fans should be happy with the news. Raimi is a great director but ever since Spider-Man 3….yeah.
