After literal years of delays and put-offs, Blizzard and Legendary Pictures are confident enough that the Warcraft movie will actually happen that they’ve given it a release date.
The date comes via Blizzard’s Twitter and is specific, not a window: December 18, 2015.
At this stage, all that’s been seen of the Warcraft film is a single teaser. The project was stymied for a long time, with former director Sam Raimi blaming Blizzard, which is notoriously protective of the property.
The latest rumours suggest Colin Farrell and Paula Patton may sign on to star. Filming is expected to begin in January.
