Warcraft Movie Production Status

Blizzard rep Frank Pearce announced last week in New York that writers are currently being sought for the long-awaited “Warcraft” movie.

“Legendary Pictures is currently trying to assign some names to write the screenplay and find someone to direct it, so it’s still really early in production. They want to make sure they get the right talent for those different parts, especially the screenwriting because that’s the foundation for the movie” he tells MTV News.

Would the film be live-action or CG animated like the games? “[The idea] has come up in discussions but it’s not something we’ve really considered because it takes so long to generate just the brief amount of footage that we create for the game. It would definitely be really cool. There’s no question about that, it’s just that the quantity of work that it would take is more than we’re willing to take on at this point.”
