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).

Furthermore, discussions are nearly done with Dominic Cooper - soon to be seen again in Captain America: The Winter Soldier - as well.

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.

Duncan Jones' Warcraft may be delayed to 2016 thanks to J.J. Abrams' Star Wars: Episode VII taking over the December 2015 spotlight, but that doesn't mean that the movie is doing anything to slow down pre-production. Over the last few months we've heard a few actor names swirling around the video game adaptation and today, according to The Hollywood Reporter, a few more have signed on. The trade's sources tell them that Ben Foster, Toby Kebbell and Robert Kazinsky have all penned deals to star in Warcraft while Dominic Cooper is currently in final stages of negotiations. The group of actors join a cast that already includes Paula Patton, who got some action cred starring in Brad Bird's Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol, and Travis Fimmel, who has become a rising star in Hollywood thanks to his role on series Vikings. Colin Farrell has also been in talks to »

Legendary Pictures and Universal Pictures just announced that they've closed deals with Ben Foster (3:10 to Yuma), Travis Fimmel (Vikings), Paula Patton (Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol), Toby Kebbell (The Counselor), and Rob Kazinsky (Pacific Rim) for writer-director Duncan Jones' Warcraft. Dominic Cooper (Captain America: The First Avenger) is also in final negotiations to star. Production is scheduled to begin in Vancouver this coming January. Warcraft will open March 11, 2016. Hit the jump for more. Unfortunately, no casting details are available at the moment, and the order of the casting announcement is not indicative of the final film's billing. News out of BlizzCon 2013 did tell us that the Warcraft film adaptation would tell “the story of Anduin Lothar versus Durotan, Human and Orc heroes from the original real-time strategy games.” Your guess is as good as mine as for who will be taking on which role when the film kicks into gear. »

Warner Bros. must have thought it would hit lucky nabbing a December 18th, 2015 release date for its upcoming Warcraft adaptation, slipping in nicely to the Holiday Fantasy slot currently occupied by Peter Jackson's Hobbit trilogy... until Lucasfilm announced that J.J. Abrams' Star Wars: Episode VII would arrive that very same day.
So, facing competition from what is sure to be one of - if not the - biggest earners in a year packed with potential billion dollar blockbusters such as The Avengers: Age of Ultron, Batman vs. Superman, Jurassic World, Bond 24 and The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2, WB has wisely decided to push back the release of Warcraft, with the film now set to arrive on March 11th 2016.

Briefly: Following last week's news that Mission: Impossible 5 was making the bold choice to open on Christmas Day in 2015, just one week after Star Wars: Episode VII hits theaters, we have one returning cast member confirmed to join Tom Cruise in the sequel from Jack Reacher director and The Usual Suspects writer Christopher McQuarrie. Speaking with MTV, Simon Pegg confirmed that the Imf team's computer and gadget expert Benji will be back in the field with Ethan Hunt.

First off, go see Blue Is the Warmest Color when it is released on Friday. It's an incredible film, maybe the best of the year, and although it spans three hours, it's an emotional and heartbreaking epic.
Star Léa Seydoux (Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol) is involved in a series of incredibly intimate lesbian sex scenes and in an interview with Metro, she revealed that she found filming them "extremely difficult". Expanding, she said that filming the sex scenes were "humiliating and gross" to shoot: "You have to be out of your body. It’s too difficult... I wanted to go far in a character. I wanted to, like, explore and expose myself. And even the sex scenes… I wanted to experience how it would be to shoot things like that... I had to be the character and give everything, but, at the same time, I had to protect myself. »

After a flurry of casting rumours last month, things have fallen pretty quiet on director Duncan Jones' (Moon, Source Code) upcoming Warcraft movie. So far, we know that Vikings star Travis Fimmel has secured one of the four lead roles, while a deal is said to be on the table for Colin Farrell (Total Recall) to fill one of the other spots, and Farrell has briefly spoken about the video game adaptation during an interview with IGN to promote his latest movie Saving Mr. Banks.
"Warcraft? Don’t know what’s happening, man. I read the script, if that’s any use to you, and it’s amazing. Duncan was cool. I sat with Duncan for a while and read the script, loved the script, and we was as cool as can be. I don’t know what’s happening with the film. I don’t know where they are in the process. »
