Gold Farming Holywood style: World of Warcraft Movie announced

It had been circulating for some time but it is now official: A movie based on the Warcraft universe is in the works. Blizzard and Legendary Pictures will produce the film while Warner Bros will co-finance it and handle distribution. Not a bad team I 'll say, as it was emphasized that its going to be a big budget movie and not some lame-ass game adaptation like the really bad Wing Commander (I actually paid the admission ticket for this one back in the day), or the even worse Super Mario Bros(shitiest movie based on a game ever).

Will the warcraft universe undead look like the zombies from Evil dead. I sure hope not...

The director of the movie is going to be Sam Raimi who directed the Evil Dead series and the spiderman films. Not the worst choice but I guess we'll have to wait and see. I am not a big fan of WoW, in fact I don't like it, but I am always pro Big-Budget, Epic-Scale, fantasy movies so I hope they don't screw this up.

Have no fear, Sam Raimi is a very good choice. Now that he is involved the WoW film is on my must see list!
