Warcraft Live Action

Thanks to MTV we have some update about the upcoming live action Warcrat movie. Director Sam Raimi, who is set to helm the movie Warcraft, told them that Screenwriter Robert Rodat (who penned ‘Saving Private Ryan’) has been hired to undertake the challenge that’s ahead. He also confirmed that the movie would be somehow based on ‘Arthas: Rise of the Lich King’, the Warcraft novel by Christie Golden. But he also adds that they want to integrate elements of the game so to please to gamers:

Sam Raimi talks about his live action Warcraft movie.

“We want to be really faithful to the game. We would have our writer, Robert Rodat, really craft an original story within that world that feels like a ‘World of WarCraft’ adventure. Only obviously it’s very different ’cause it’s expanded and translated into the world of a motion picture.
the Horde and the Alliance and the mythology that takes place in the game, and the archetypes that the game presents. I think we would try and find touchstones within the game to make it accurate and true and choose one or some of the lands that are portrayed in the game with as much accuracy and authenticity as possible.”

They’d better respect the game indeed… If they don’t, hordes of Warcraft fans would come to chop them down with medieval axes…

    I hope this movie wont end up like Lord of the Rings, because its really different from that.I believe that u need to capture perspectives from Alliance and Horde, because it is argumentable that they are both good guys fighting for what they believe in.Please don’t make it portrayed as Alliance are the good guys and Horde are the bad. I mean u have 6 races of people on each Horde and Alliance u cant just drop half of it off and focus on the other half. Plus u have to think about all the Horde fans who would get PO’ed
