The live-action Warcraft movie was in development for quite some time with Sam Raimi tapped to direct since 2009. The film based on the ultra-popular online role-playing game ‘ World of Warcraft’ looked like it was dead in the water last summer when Raimi departed for Oz the Great and Powerful.
Legendary Pictures then brought screenwriter Charles Leavitt to provide a rewrite on the script which was initially penned by Robert Rodat (Saving Private Ryan) . Now comes word that son of none other than David Bowie, Duncan Jones (Source Code) has been tapped to take the helm for a planned fall 2013 production start.
The script is being kept under wraps.
