As we're reported a few months back, Blizzard have officially agreed to make a movie based on their ever-popular Warcraft video game franchise. Initially, the task of filming was given to Sam Raimi, but he left the project before it even kicked off, so now the director's chair has been filled by Duncan Jones (best known for Moon and Source Code).
Anyway, today, film studio Legendary Pictures announced that the Warcraft movie is now set to hit theaters on December 18, 2015 - courtesy of Universal Pictures. The massive venture is the result of a recently formed a partnership between the two aforementioned studios.
Word is that the upcoming flick is "written by Charles Leavitt and Duncan Jones. The producers are Charles Roven and Alex Gartner for Atlas Entertainment and Thomas Tull and Jon Jashni for Legendary. Stuart Fenegan, Jillian Share and Brent O’Connor will serve as executive producers. Blizzard's Chris Metzen will co-produce."
And Ben Affleck will be playing Arthas Menethil... Nah, I'm only pulling your leg about that. The rest is true though. All, except the Ben Affleck bit.
