With over 11 million subscribers and still counting, World of Warcraft is one of the most impressive MMORPGs, if not THE most impressive of them all. So far, so good, but... who wouldn't enjoy a World of Warcraft movie? A real movie, maybe one to compete with Lord of the Rings! Well, that may not be only my dream, but it still seems to be pretty far away.
I don't think there's room for the "why" question here, since if we look at the Wrath of The Lich King expansion, with over 2.8 million units sold in the first 24 hours, there's no doubt that a World of Warcraft movie would surely bring in a lot of people to see it, and I can only hope this long wait lying ahead will pay off in the end.<-125x125 Button - right->
While Frank Pearce, the director of product development at Blizzard, has revealed to MTV Multiplayer that the WoW movie project is still in the first stages of development and Legendary Pictures is still looking for screenwriters, we all have big hopes.
"Legendary Pictures is currently trying to assign some names to write the screenplay and find someone to direct it, so it’s still really early in production. They want to make sure they get the right talent for those different parts, especially the screenwriting, because that’s the foundation for the movie," said Pearce.
All I want is to see Angelina Jolie playing some partially nude, evil witch. Can I have at least that, please? Apart from that, it really doesn't matter! ;)
