The wildly popular video game World Of Warcraft (WOW), and its rich world of orcs, wizards and other fantasy staples, is finally coming to the big screen, and boasts quite the cast.
Among those donning the inevitably-intricate costumes and makeup required for the movie include: 3:10 To Yuma’s Ben Foster, Viking’s Travis Fimmel, 2 Guns’ Paula Patton, Rocknrolla’s Toby Kebbell and Pacific Rim star Rob Kazinsky.
Meanwhile, Universal and Legendary Pictures are in the final stages of negotiations with Dominic Cooper, who starred as Howard Stark in Marvel’s Captain America: The First Avenger.
The script, written by Charles Leavitt with a rewrite by Moon director and David Bowie's son Duncan Jones, is set in the universe of World of Warcraft, a massive, multi-player, online role-playing game created by Blizzard Entertainment. The game, which users pay a monthly fee to play, has over 10 million subscribers and active participants worldwide.
Production on Warcraft begins in January of 14 and is currently scheduled for a March 11, 2016 release date. Will you watch this video-game-turned-movie?
