Duncan Jones (Moon, Source Code) is hard at work on the pre-production stage of Warcraft, his film adaptation of the game world seen in Blizzard video games Warcraft and World of Warcraft.
The film doesn’t shoot until early 2014, but a lot of work has already gone into the project. Jones and his producers appeared at Blizzcon over the weekend, and sat in on a panel talking about the film. While they still haven’t released the proof of concept footage shown at Comic Con this past summer, the panel discussion debuted some concept art, which you can see below, and offered a few details on the script.

Briefly: Duncan Jones‘ adaptation of the popular video game Warcraft is gearing up for battle. Casting is underway and Legendary Pictures showed a badass concept reel at Comic-Con. With production set to start early next year, the film now has a release date. Warcraft will be released December 18. 2015 by Universal Pictures.
Briefly: Legendary may have showed off some proof of concept footage for Duncan Jones‘ upcoming Warcraft at Comic Con, but the film isn’t actually cast and shooting just yet. Production is expected to kick off for real early in 2014, and so the movie is starting to hit the casting process now.
The first report we’ve got about possible actors for the film says that Paula Patton is in talks for one lead role and that another has been offered to Colin Farrell. We still know nothing about the script, by Charles Leavitt, so it is impossible to say precisely what sort of characters the actors could end up playing. Patton is evidently pretty far along in the casting process, while Farrell isn’t yet set, and could still end up not taking the gig.
Update: A shortlist for the film also includes Paul Dano (There Will Be Blood, Prisoners), Travis Fimmel (Vikings), Anson Mount (Hell on Wheels), and Anton Yelchin (Star Trek, Fright Night). [Deadline]

At Comic-Con Saturday morning, Legendary revealed a first look at what Duncan Jones‘ Warcraft could be. Based on the popular video game World of Warcraft, the director of Moon will start shooting early next year. He called the opportunity a dream come true and is well aware how connected people are to the games. The footage shown, which is not online, just gave an idea of what audiences can expect with the adaptation. Think a mixture of classic Western with video game tropes.
