It has been reported that Duncan Jones has been signed up to directed the long-awaited World of Warcraft movie. There has been a lot of talk about a World of Warcraft film in the past but it looks like it may finally be happening, with Duncan Jones helming the project.
Jones took to his official Twitter account to tease, “So the gauntlet was thrown down ages ago: Can you make a proper MOVIE of a video game? I've always said its possible. Got to DO it now! ;)”
The World of Warcraft movie has had plenty of ups and downs in recent years and, just when it looks like it is going to finally be made, another issue crops up. We are all hoping that Legendary Films and Blizzard Entertainment have finally got their act together and we will actually get a World of Warcraft movie made this time around.
While most World of Warcraft fans would have been hoping for a top Hollywood director, Duncan Jones is a very accomplished film maker, with impressive work such as the science fiction drama Moon and the 2011 movie Source Code. The screenplay for the World of Warcraft film has been penned by Charles Leavitt (Blood Diamond) and production is expected to begin in the Fall, with a 2015 release date being aimed for.
Do you think Duncan Jones is the right man to direct the World of Warcraft movie?
