The latest video game to make the jump to the big screen will be Blizzard’s Warcraft series:
LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) – The hugely popular “Warcraft” video games have inspired plans for a live-action feature film set in the epic fantasy universe of orcs, trolls, elves and the undead.
The project is being developed by the creator of the games, Blizzard Entertainment Inc., and producer Legendary Pictures, which acquired the movie rights.
Hopefully Blizzard is taking a big hand in the development process, particularly in the story itself. Not sure about it being live action as I’d much rather see Blizzard’s CGI team that did the stunning intro movie for World of Warcraft get turned loose on a full-length movie project, but the amount of time it would take would probably be more than considerable.
