Briefly: Late in January of this year, Duncan Jones (Moon, Source Code) was announced as director of the long-in-development film based on Blizzard’s game world seen in titles like World of Warcraft. Unsurprisingly, news on further developments has been slow in coming as Jones and the films producers craft a plan for the film. At the time Jones was announced, a late 2013 shoot was theorized, with hopes for a 2015 release.
That 2015 release may still be in the cards, but today producer Charles Roven told us that Warcraft is currently planned to shoot in early 2014. “First quarter 2014 we’re going to shoot that movie,” Roven told Germain while discussing Legendary’s plans. “We’re moving forward; obviously Legendary is making that film and I’m having a great time with Duncan.”
We’re still in the dark with respect to knowing how Jones will bring the environment of the Warcraft series to the big screen, and if the early 2014 schedule holds it will likely be Comic Con, at the earliest, before we get any real idea of the team’s plan.
