Warcraft movie dated for December 2015, may actually happen

Tuesday, 1st October 2013 23:34 GMT By Brenna Hillier

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.

However, things have been accelerating since Moon director Duncan Jones took over; he’s an avid gamer and the project is a dream come true.

The latest rumours suggest Colin Farrell and Paula Patton may sign on to star. Filming is expected to begin in January.

Thanks, Kotaku.

    This is excellent news! I have been greatly anticipating this movie. Sure it has had its controversies, with directors leaving and fingers being pointed left and right at the culprits. However if they can deliver on the great fantasy world which is WarCraft I will have a smile from ear to ear.
