Sam Raimi revealed quite a bit of information about his work on the Warcraft movie in a recent video interview with Collider.com at the Saturn Awards.
Many promising things were said during the interview, but some points of interest include:
- Raimi and scriptwriter Robert Rodat (Saving Private Ryan, The Patriot) are working on a treatment for the film. So far they've written a 40-page document.
- Raimi is playing WoW to get a feel for the game world. He has a level 72 character.
- Legendary Pictures (Batman Begins, Inception) is excited about the project and Legendary Pictures founder and producer, Thomas Tull is a big fan of the game.
- The movie will be set entirely in the Warcraft universe. No video game component will exist in the film. (Thank Elune.)
