Blizzard recently announced that they will proceed to make a movie out of the world’s most popular computer game, World of Warcraft. Sam Raimi, director of the Spiderman and Evil Dead series will be the director, and the same people who produced the box-office smash The Dark Knight will be working together.
Since previous video games that were made into movies have been notorious for doing poorly at the box office, it’s normal for people to expect the same with this upcoming movie. However, Blizzard hopes to break such expectations by using these prominent cinema characters mentioned above. No exact release date has yet been made but many suspect that this movie will be released sometime near the end of 2010, if not later.
