Warcraft may have had its release date pushed back to 2016 to avoid going up against Disney's Star Wars: Episode VII, but the video game adaptation looks to be picking up the pace in terms of casting, with Universal revealing that Ben Foster (Lone Survivor), Rob Kazinsky (True Blood) and Toby Kebbell (Wrath of the Titans) have signed on for as-yet-unrevealed roles, while Dominic Cooper (Captain America: The First Avenger) is in final negotiations.
The four actors join the previously announced Travis Fimmel (Vikings) and Paula Patton (Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol) in the cast of Warcraft, which is being directed by Duncan Jones (Moon, Source Code). Other actors who have been linked to parts in the fantasy epic include Colin Farrell (Total Recall), Anton Yelchin (Star Trek Into Darkness), Paul Dano (Prisoners) and Anson Mount (Straw Dogs).
Warcraft is set for release on March 11th 2016. »

Following up on yesterday's first casting news for Duncan Jones' big screen adaptation of the Blizzard Entertainment video game juggernaut World of Warcraft, another casting update has made its way online.
THR reports that Dominic Cooper (pictured) is in final negotiations to join the fantasy opposite the previously announced Ben Foster ("Six Feet Under," Pandorum, Rampart), Travis Fimmel ("Vikings," The Experiment), Paula Patton (Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol), Toby Kebbell (Dawn of the Planet of the Apes), and Rob Kazinsky ("True Blood," Pacific Rim).
Duncan Jones (Moon, Source Code) has closed a deal with Legendary Pictures to bring a live action version of WoW to the big screen. Charles Leavitt (The Seventh Son) came on board last August to pen the script. Legendary, which picked up film rights to adapt the popular fantasy video game franchise back in 2006, said it's planning for a summer 2015 release.

Duncan Jones’ “Warcraft” movie, based on the bestselling “World of Warcraft” line of games, is piling up some impressive actors for its cast. Travis Fimmel and Paula Patton were previously cast as the film’s headliners, and now they’ll be joined by Ben Foster, Toby Kebbell, and Dominic Cooper. A pretty impressive trio of additions there, folks. I would actually love to see a movie with just these three guys, but throw them into a fantasy setting with the guy behind “Moon” and “Source Code” calling the shots? Hell, “Warcraft” just went from a, “Huh, another movie based on a game, yeah, that’s gonna work!” title to a, “Huh, a movie with Duncan Jones directing and starring Foster, Kebbell, and Cooper? Damn, I gotta see this!” Your mileage, as always, will vary depending on tastes and ability to discern acting talent. And oh, Rob Kazinsky is also in this one, »
If you've ever given over days of your life to a sprawling online computer game involving trolls and orcs, then you're probably looking forward to "Moon" director Duncan Jones's "Warcraft," an adaptation of Blizzard Entertainment's "World of Warcraft" video game. While the leads haven't been locked down (although Colin Ferrell is heavily rumored), four new actors have joined the cast of the epic fantasy adventure.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Ben Foster, who stars in this month's harrowing war film "Lone Survivor"; Robert Kazinsky from HBO's "True Blood"; Dominic Cooper from "Captain America" and this year's sorely underrated revenge movie "Dead Man Down"; and Toby Kebbell, who appears in next year's highly anticipated "Dawn of the Planet of the Apes," have all secured roles in "Warcraft."

One of the big question marks about the film has been who Jones would cast, and now the studio has announced the first round of official casting news.

Legendary Pictures and Universal Pictures have officially cast its main actors in Duncan Jones' upcoming feature film adaptation of Warcraft. Some of the names we've heard before, others are a complete surprise!
So far we've got Ben Foster (3:10 to Yuma), Travis Fimmel (Vikings), Paula Patton (Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol), Toby Kebbell (RocknRolla), and Rob Kazinsky (Pacific Rim). Then there is Dominic Cooper (Captain America: The Winter Soldier), who is in the final stages of negotiations. This is a pretty awesome cast so far, and I expect we'll see even more.

It was only a matter of time before Duncan Jones entered the blockbuster world. His debut "Moon" managed a huge amount with a fairly slim budget, he stepped up to a bigger canvas effectively with "Source Code," and he's been linked with big projects like "The Wolverine," "Man Of Steel" and "Catching Fire" over the last few years. But the helmer, a keen videogamer, was finally lured to the megabudget world by "Warcraft," Legendary's adaptation of the popular series of fantasy video games. Another epic full of orcs and goblins and elves isn't the most immediately enticing prospect, but Jones' involvement is enough to ensure that we'll be interested, and he's justified our faith with some promising casting choices for the project. According to Coming Soon, Jones has added to the "Warcraft' cast with new additions Ben Foster, Toby Kebbell and Robert Kazinsky, while Dominic Cooper is in negotiations »

Big casting announcement for the Warcraft movie tonight. Variety is reporting that four more names are set for Duncan Jones' Warcraft movie in the works at Legendary. The big four are: Ben Foster (of 3:10 to Yuma, Pandorum, Rampart, Ain't Them Bodies Saints, Lone Survivor), Toby Kebbell (of RocknRolla, Prince of Persia, Sorcerer's Apprentice, Wrath of the Titans, The East), Rob Kazinsky (of "True Blood", Red Tails + Chuck Hansen in Pacific Rim) in three lead roles, with Dominic Cooper (Mamma Mia, Devil's Double, Captain America, Need for Speed) in negotiations for a part as well. All four of these guys are very talented actors on the rise and should make for a gritty, badass cast of humans. So who will they be playing? No one knows! Plot details for this Warcraft movie are still being kept a big secret, and we don't have have any casting or character breakdowns to go along with them. »
