Warcraft Movie’s Director Announced

Warcraft Movie Release DateRumours about a Warcraft movie have been around nearly as long as World of Warcraft, so it’s great to see a key piece of meat added to the bones of those rumours.

Duncan Jones, director of Source Code, has been signed, with filming set to start in the second half of this year and a release in 2015:

Legendary is keeping its script, written by Charles Leavitt, under wraps. The Warner Bros.-based production and finance outfit is eyeing a fall start and a 2015 release.

Jones’ producing partner, Stuart Fenegan, will executive produce, while Chris Metzen will co-produce for Blizzard.
Warcraft is a big jump up in terms of scope and scale for Jones, the filmmaker son of David Bowie known for his thoughtful sci-fi work.

Jones seems a good pick – if you’ve seen Source Code you’ll know Jones can build tension in a big way whilst delving into otherworldly concepts. That’s two ingredients a Warcraft movie needs for success so here’s hoping. And Hogger – the movie definitely needs Hogger.
