Sam Raimi To Direct World Of Warcraft Movie
Spider-Man director chosen to adapt the fantasy video game franchise...
Legendary film-maker Sam Raimi has been confirmed as the director of the hotly-anticipated World of Warcraft movie.
The project seemed to have been in limbo since Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures teamed up with Blizzard Entertainment to develop the game into a big screen adventure.
Things have gotten serious now though with Raimi and Charles Roven, producer of The Dark Knight, both confirmed to be on board.
World of Warcraft, often referred to as WoW, is a massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG) by Blizzard Entertainment. It has more than 11.5 million monthly subscribers, and holds the Guinness World Record for the most popular MMORPG.
Raimi plans to tackle the project after Spider-Man 4 wraps. The superhero flick is set to begin shooting early next year.
