So as it is planned Warcraft movie should be released in 2015. Players have been waiting for this over for 7 years already. This movie is too important for every good player of Warcraft, but from what Thomas Tull , Legendary Pictures CEO said that first thing he will do is that He will try to lose the fact that this is a videogame Movie. I dont know how you feel about this, guys, but Im little bit scared! But he said that if Director has good story (in this case Lore) director can make a good movie and he mentioned that Warcraft has good story too, so I guess we will see similar story telling what we have in Lore.
Tull is also very proud to have Duncan Jones as Director and has big beliefs on him:I think first of all is to lose the fact that it’s a videogame movie and just concentrate on do you have a story that’s worth telling? Because if you look back to the 80’s, comic book movies were not anywhere near what they are today. They weren’t given the resources and you didn’t have the level of directors that you have today working on these things. I think with videogames it’s just become much more sophisticated storytelling, hard to do a movie off of Pong, but today when you have stuff like Mass Effect, you have things like Warcraft, you have things like Skyrim where very cool worlds have been created, that’s what we’re attracted to. We took our time with Warcraft because just saying “How many people play the game? Well then that means X number of people will buy a ticket.” That’s a death trap, that’s the surest way to make a crap movie, and that’s not an option. So we took our time wanted to make sure that we used all the canon that’s been built up over years and years by Blizzard.
And I guess most important note !We’re huge believers in Duncan Jones, and I think what we’re going to bring to screen and to bear with Duncan, he is going to break that mold because it’s going to have the resources, the talent around it, and a Field General in Duncan Jones. It’s, again, the reason we took our time, made sure we had the right guy, the right person to make the movie, and then it will speak for itself when it comes out.Some more words what Tull said about Warcraft Movie :He added that we’ll soon be hearing updates regarding the production status, script, and release date.
One of the things were realty excited about is a movie called Spectral and the directors are these guys that did Kon-Tiki [Joachim Rønning and Espen Sandberg] that was up for an Oscar this year. They’re just incredible smart filmmakers. We also have movie with Michael Mann that’s going to come out that we’re really excited about. Michael Mann is one of the best filmmakers on the planet. So these are some of the things that we’re going to be talking a lot more about and that are on deck and getting ready to shoot besides the big ones that you’ve already covered.
Movie also got new VFX director Bill Westenhofer a two time Academy Award winner for visual effects, Golden Compass and fresh one from last Oscar for Life of Pi.
Thats all for now.
