Talk of a World of Warcraft movie is circulating. The director by the name of Sam Raimi seems to believe that a movie based on this game is possible, and could be very successful. What do you think? Would you like to see a World of Warcraft movie come out, and would you like it to be based on current story lines, or on new story lines based on the game? Thanks!

To be it should be based on what the game is about. That would ruin it if they wrote a new story line.

Yes, I agree. It would be cool to occasionally throw in something new to sort of build up for new expansions in the future, though. I don't know, it just sort of seems like Wrath of the Lich King is geared more towards higher levels than lower levels, and I hope the new expansion has more for the lower levels too.

ok..are you ready? lol..here is what i found. on Aug 4th..this was posted to http://warcraft.moviechronicles.com/ (an unofficial site) [i]"This movie will be big, huge, EPIC even - in fact, Thomas Tull (producer of 300) stated a budget of over $100m would be committed, with a projected 2009 release date. Legendary Pictures are 100% committed to this project... The plot for the film will take place approximately a year before the start of World of Warcraft, including races you have played and lands you have wandered in, where lots of plot arcs are melded into a two and a half hour story. The film itself will revolve around a ‘badass’ new hero, with a theme towards conflict and culture - being a War Movie rather than a quest movie, from an Alliance’s perspective. No director or cast have yet been assigned to the project and Tull stated that recognizable actors to play main roles was not a necessity."[/i] it also says the movie is still in the scripting process...which makes me think it wont be in the theaters until 2010 at least..i should think. Character classes will be in the movie..but no definite ones yet, since still scripting.

Excellent information! I can't wait, but I still stand by the fact that I would love to see it broke down into like a series of some type that breaks apart the story line a little. Massive coverage would be great! Until they come up with this, I will be anticipating the movie! I love reading the stories of the history on Wow Wiki!

there has been talk of a movie since the game launched... right now I'm taking it as rumor and wishful thinking till I actually see a preview trailer or get official word from blizz.
