Duncan Jones is awesome for many reasons. First off, Moon is an excellent film. If you haven’t seen it, do so now. Secondly, well, he’s David Bowie’s son. With Moon and Source Code under his belt, Jones is now taking on a new world, never-before-seen on the big screen: Blizzard Entertainment's World of Warcraft.
Legendary Pictures is making Warcraft; it's a project that has been in the works since 2006. In 2009 Sam Raimi was briefly attached but dropped out to make Oz the Great and Powerful. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the project boasts a budget of $100 million. It’s a much larger film in terms of financing and scale than Jones has previously tackled.
There isn’t a whole lot of information on script penned by Charles Leavitt who wrote, among other highly-popular films, Blood Diamond and The Express. One can only assume it’s going to be epic.
Warcraft is looking at a fall 2013 start date.
