World of Warcraft film makers thicken plot

Fans hoping for 2011 release

A movie adaption of what is quite possibly the world’s most popular videogame, World of Warcraft, is well underway, Executive Producer Robert Tapert has hinted.

“It’s in development," Tapert told IF magazine. “We're in the outline/story/script phase.”

Tapert didn't give anything away about the movie’s storyline, claiming he doesn’t yet know what Director Sam Raimi – who directed Spider-Man 1, 2 and 3, not to mention The Evil Dead – wants to do with the game-turned-movie.

World of Warcraft: The Movie - a tentative name for the film, which most fans expect to appear in cinemas next year – will be an “original story” yet still feel “like a World of Warcraft adventure”, Raimi said in October 2009. ®
