WORLD OF WARCRAFT Gets New Scribe
Legendary Pictures is moving forward with the World of Warcraft feature film and has hired Charles Leavitt to pen the latest draft.
Blizzard Entertainment’s “Warcraft” universe is a rich fantasy setting that revolves around the epic conflict between the opposing forces of the Horde and the Alliance. Since its debut in 1994, “Warcraft” has developed a loyal following across the globe, with several bestselling, award-winning PC games and a range of popular licensed products including novels, action figures, apparel, comic books, board games, and more. “World of Warcraft,” Blizzard Entertainment’s subscription-based massively multiplayer online role-playing game set in the Warcraft universe, is the most popular game of its kind in the world.
The studio will have to find a new director as the once attached Sam Raimi is no longer associated with the project. Leavitt’s credits to date include K-Pax and Blood Diamond. There is no date for the release of World of Warcraft but 2014 seems like a possibility if they kick things into high gear.
