    Warcraft film update (Very minor)

    Found on comingsoon.net;

    "Warcraft was teased, albeit briefly, with a simple title treatment. To be directed by Duncan Jones (Moon), the film is based on the game series. Tull said they are taking their time with this one and placing a "very high bar" on it, "because, frankly, video game movies have not fared very well." They want a great script and are taking the property very seriously. Expect more updates over the next few months."

    In before "It's going to be bad"

    I believe they are taking it seriously. People think if it's quiet it's not happening.

    Legendary is a great studio also. Good Choice.

    I can see them taking a long time with this to get it right, Blizzard would not allow any company to sully the WoW franchise with a bad movie, but I can wait ^^

    It will end well. We have nothing to go on. You can't judge without any footage or information. I mean, I could understand if we saw something but we haven't.

    Going on past movies based off video games and most did not end well imo.

    Low expectations. I guess I'm giving them the opportunity to surprise me.
    If you are particularly bold, you could use a Shiny Ditto. Do keep in mind though, this will infuriate your opponents due to Ditto's beauty. Please do not use Shiny Ditto. You have been warned.

    I think so too. Their movies always look very slick.

    The funny part is, video game writing as improved dramatically over the last few years. Lots of those games / adaptation didn't have much of a premise to begin with... and some were given to Uwe Boll.

    What they should... is hire Josh Weadon.

    I think Joss Whedon is booked up for the next few years.

    My expectations are low but i'm hoping for the best - I'm glad they're taking their time with planning it out however.

    Without Uwe Boll's guiding hand this film is dead before it starts.

    They need to do a good job with it. It could be LotR awesome if they do it right. If they make it another cgi action flick without substance it'll be a big dumb flop. If the movie is a smashing success and gets more people interested in the story overall, those writers should be brought in for the in-game lore.

    A part of me would love to see Uwe Bolls version.. just for comedy value. I know he expressed an interest years ago.

    Aside from the Lich King storyline, which still had its cheesy moments, I have yet to see story in-game that would grip my attention.

    Add the fact that this project is blockbustery and the kind of blockbustery writers that attracts...and this seems doomed.

    Surprise me. Go on. Make a compelling movie. But I'm not seeing it until the reviews are dripping with positives.
