Colin Farrell Praises “Warcraft” Script

Filmmaker Duncan Jones is currently prepping the film adaptation of the massive online “World of Warcraft” video game franchise, with filming slated to begin in February.

Colin Farrell was reportedly offered a leading role in the project a while back, but since that news broke there hasn’t been much further information on just what his part is.

Turns out, Farrell himself isn’t sure either. Out doing press for “Saving Mr. Banks,” IGN asked him if he could reveal what role he plays in the film, to which he replied:

“Can I? I probably shouldn’t. I don’t even know, actually, I’ll just say that! I don’t even know. We were just talking, and Duncan just said, ‘There might be something in it for you! And I said, ‘Catering?'”

Asked about how he came to be with the project, he says:

“I sat with Duncan [Jones, director] for awhile and read the script, loved the script, and we was as cool as can be. I don’t know what’s happening with the film. I don’t know where they are in the process.”

Why choose a big-budget fantasy project like this, a genre Farrell hasn’t really been involved in before:

“it’s just a world that I never explored – and it’s a really big and fantastical world. I can’t imagine what he, being as visually gifted as he is, Duncan, and what he did on ‘Moon’ with, like, a dime, I can’t imagine what he’d do with this ‘Warcraft.'”
