    Warcraft movie update: actor announced

    http://www.comingsoon.net/news/movienews.php?id=110673


    Good choice in actor IMO. Good to see someone with gritty film experience.

    Another thing I noticed, there are 4 leading rolls.

    With Colin Ferrel also still under consideration, who could they be playing?

    Edit: here is a trailer for those who have not seen Vikings.

    Got serious doubts about this film, think it's going to go horribly.

    I was pretty impressed with the first few episodes. I would have liked to finish the series. Hopefully it's on netflix soon.

    Unfortunatly I never really thought much about a Warcraft live action movie... I predict another Dungeons & Dragons disaster! Would've preferred an animated Blu Ray instead

    So we have the final title a release date and a casting anouncement. Ya watching J.J. ? THIS is how things are supposed to be done.

    i think its good they get lesser known actors.

    think about it, if they got some super famous people you would go into the theater and instead of seeing medivh or turalyon you would see that dude from so and so. and looking at his picture on that site he looks alot different then when hes all viking'd up so he wont be ragnar lothbrok he will be turalyon or whoever he plays, unless blizzard wants him to be :P

    same with doctor who, did anyone know who the hell matt smith was? or david tennant? they hadnt dont much. get lower profile actors (that are good) and its much easier to see them as that part.

    jj had to throw out the script they were working on for episode vii and hes stepped in to write it himself now.

    and i dont really think comparing warcraft to star wars is fair. star wars is like a bajillion times more popular.

    Betting they're gonna get Ben Kingsley too. No way he's gonna miss staring in a piece of crap movie, it's kinda like his trademark.

    I hope it flops, that way they will put future Warcraft movies on hold for 5-7 years before they try it again. And that time, hopefully, they will do a 100% CGI movie that will be the start of a large number of movies telling the entire Warcraft saga, without the need for re-casts if an actor departs, or having to use an older actor to play a younger version of the character he had already played, and stuff like that. Also, I would like Warcraft to be to CGI movies what Star Wars was to special effects and sci-fi movies.

    It's getting a second season as well, hopefully longer than the 7 or so the first season was. Can't wait!
