A movie based on the massively popular online game “World of Warcraft” is moving ahead according to various sources.
At BlizzCon 2007, producer Thomas Tull (“300”) confirmed that a 2009 release date is on the cards and a budget of over $100 million is to be committed to the PG-13 rated project.
Set approximately a year before the start of World of Warcraft, the film interweaves the story of various races, lands and a new hero into a two and a half hour feature told from the Alliance perspective.
The film will be live action with “CG environments and effects”. More importantly this will not be an ‘adventure’ or ‘quest’ movie, rather a ‘war’ movie. There is no director as yet.
