    No, but the people we know who are working on this have a pretty good track record.

    Director: Duncan Jones (Moon, Source Code)
    Screenplay: Duncan Jones, Charles Leavitt (Blood Diamond)
    Cinematographer: Simon Duggan (The Great Gatsby)
    Editor: Paul Hirsch (Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back, 'nuff said)
    VFX Supervisor: Mark G. Soper (Golden Compass, Life of Pi)

    It's certainly in good hands.

    Producing is nothing like directing. Producers deserve almost no credit for the artistic vision of a film; their job is to make sure the creative folk get the money that they need and to ensure that work is getting done.

    That's why you constantly see flop movies that are advertised like, "From the producers who brought you a blockbuster!"

    Directing matters. Cinematography matters. Screenplay matters. Those are the really important elements. Not so much producing.

    Cool

    At least there's some solid info out there. It was a good presentation and Duncan Jones seemed to be geeky enough to get things right. Now we can start guessing the budget for this project... if they do plan to tackle the Lord of the Rings, god damn, at least they set the bar right!

    I... err... what? What are you even talking about?

    I cannot make sense of anything you are saying. The point is that Duncan Jones has Moon & Source Code under his belt, Peter Jackson had a few Gorefest B-Movies & Heavenly Creatures was hardly a Box Office or Cinematic success. Yet Peter Jackson (And the talented people with him) pulled off one of the greatest Trilogies of all time, Duncan Jones could easily do something great with Warcraft.

    If you actually think Duncan Jones isn't at least a decent director, you clearly have not watched either of his films.

    so that is the reason when a movie gets an Oscar, a main Producer goes and picks it up first......

    sure, some producers on movies are just titles and they dont do anything, but main Producer is the head of production. Sure he doesnt have a lot to do with artistic approach, but he/she is the person who picks right ppl for those jobs.

    I really wish they wouldn't mention Avatar so much. That movie induces cringing in half the people interested and wild cheers from the other.

    I can't comprehend how they didn't get any of it leaked.
    As someone who attended said panel at Comic Con, there was a teaser shown. It was shown by Legendary, the production team behind Duncan Jones and the movie. As with anything shown in Hall H ahead of its time, it was more a mood piece to gauge reactions and interest in the project. Blizzard were probably shown it as well, but obviously couldn't get the rights to show it at Blizzcon and to a wider audience at home.

    Can't wait for this movie to finally be developed! Oh, and if you hear either Michael Bay or M. Night Shyamalan wanting to take part of this, tell them NO!!!

    You know the f***-ups they've done!!

    Fuck good news. When I heard they planned on making the movie alliance central, I felt like puking up over my warcraft novels. I don't want a movie that only has good guy humans against evil generic orcs, if I wanted that I'd watch lord of the rings or the hobbit.

    I want to see the good guys in the horde as well as the bad, and durotan as the main horde protagonist makes it nicely balanced in that. Well the outcome will be obvious to anyone knowing warcraft past, that doesn't make they can't develop the orcs in a better way then just warhammer football thugs.

    How does durotan make sense? He and Lothar were never anywhere near the same battlefields.

    Trilogy should have been about Uther, Arthas and Bolvar.

    Goldshire! Yeh you need to change the rating to 18 at least and even then i would recommend years of watching some of the worst types of porn available just to ease your mind into how goldshire is >.<

    New dungeons & dragons movie incoming! Really doubt it will be that impressive, I hope i am mistaken but we all know how most medieval fantasy movies end up.

    To be fair, neither did Jackson when he took on LotR. And somehow that turned out well. I'll give Jones the benefit of the doubt for now.

    Regarding "Durotan vs Lothar," they could just mean the characters' individual ideologies and personal narratives contrasting with each others in the face of the First War and the threat of the Horde. I.E. Lothar struggles to defend and protect his people against the new threat while Durotan struggles to defend his culture and people (Frostwolves) from the changing and frightening new Orcish behavior.

    I could be wrong though, but to me that sounds WAY cooler for a film than an actual "Durotan vs Lothar physically on the battlefield" scenario.

    I want to see Orcs Thrashing, night elves prancing, undead... dying, Dwarfs Mining, Gnomes tinkering, humans... doing whatever humans do! And everything in between!

    A TV show of a dying franchise? No thanks.

    "The story is Orcs vs Humans. Lothar and Durotan."

    This just made my day.

    "Lothar and Durotan"

    They don't have anything to do with each other in current lore, so this is interesting.

    New lore or 2 seperate stories?
