World of Warcraft Movie Moves Forward

World of Warcraft gamers can rejoice. Not only has this video game franchise expanded to comics, novels and CCGs, the stalled plans to create a movie version is given a jolt today.

Evil Dead creator, director and fan-fave Sam Raimi signed on to direct the movie version and it may come out as early as 2012.

“I am thrilled to work with such a dynamite production team to bring this project to the big screen,” says Raimi.

The announcement came today by Blizzard Entertainment and Legendary Pictures. With Raimi’s track record in such works like Spiderman and Drag Me to Hell, to develop this multi-genre franchise for the big screen is exciting.

Charles Roven, who produced The Dark Knight, Batman Begins and the sci-fi classic 12 Monkeys, is also on board.
