Rumor: 'Vikings' star Travis Fimmel to play lead role in Warcraft movie

'Vikings' star Travis Fimmel to play lead role in Warcraft movie
Variety is reporting that Travis Fimmel, who plays Ragnar Lothbrok in the History Channel series Vikings, is set to star in the upcoming Warcraft movie. A formal offer hasn't been presented yet, but their sources say he will be playing one of the four lead roles in the film. Last month, it was reported that Paula Patton (Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol) was in negotiations for one of the lead roles. Colin Farrell has reportedly been offered a lead but it's uncertain how likely he is to sign on.

The plot of the movie has been a carefully guarded secret and all we really know is there will be four lead characters. We should find out more at BlizzCon where there will be a panel dedicated to the Warcraft movie with Duncan Jones (Director), Chris Metzen, and Rob Pardo. Warcraft will hit theaters on December 18, 2015.

Rumor: Colin Farrell and Paula Patton cast as leads in Warcraft movie


It's a rumor, but an interesting one ... apparently Colin Farrell has already been offered a role in the new Warcraft movie, and Paula Patton is in the contracting stage. Legendary Pictures and Atlas Entertainment are doing the casting, and things certainly seem to be moving forward.

Which, despite whatever you might think of these two choices, is good news for the film. It's been plagued for years with various ups and downs. Finally getting to the point of actually casting the movie should be cause for celebration around the halls of Blizzard Entertainment.

Of course now the question turns to what Farrell and Patton would be best at in the Warcraft universe. I'm thinking Medivh for Farrell (I mean, he's got mad wizard written all over him). And Patton as Jaina, although she'd have to dye her hair. Or maybe she's evil Jaina... #NotAnAnnouncement

The Warcraft movie is set to begin filming in 2014.
