Uwe Boll has revealed that he approached Blizzard about doing a World of Warcraft movie and got shot down immediately.

“I got in contact with Paul Sams of Blizzard, and he said, ‘We will not sell the movie rights, not to you… especially not to you,’” Boll told MTV. “Because it’s such a big online game success, maybe a bad movie would destroy that ongoing income, what the company has with it.”

Never mind, Uwe. It’s not the end of the world. Of Warcraft.
