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:

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…
