Vilhelm Posted July 22, 2009 Share Posted July 22, 2009 http://www.variety.com/article/VR111800629...yid=13&cs=1 Sam Raimi has signed on to direct "Warcraft," the live-action film adaptation of the fantasy videogame franchise "World of Warcraft." Legendary Pictures and vidgame publisher Blizzard Entertainment are mounting the film, and Warner Bros. will co-finance and distribute. The team boasts an impressive pedigree: In addition to the director of "Spider-Man," the partners have added "The Dark Knight" producer Charles Roven to the creative mix. The plan is for Raimi to supervise development of "Warcraft" and shoot the picture after he completes work on "Spider-Man 4," which gets under way early next year for Columbia Pictures. Not exactly the director I was expecting, but good news nevertheless. Chris Metzen will co-produce the movie, maybe he'll have the rest of the producers on a leash as they yell "less yappering, more swordfighting!" and "bigger monsters!"
