Players come for the game, but they stay for the people- Most Devs have forgotten this.

Duncan Jones, Charles Leavitt, and $100 Million to spend... could be good?

Described as an MMORPG (massively multiplayer online role playing game), World of Warcraft has around ten million subscribers, suggesting a ready-made audience for Jones's film. It is set in a universe in which goblins, trolls, elves and humans exist alongside zombies, werewolves and even aliens.

 

It's reassuring that the author knows all about this game and is fully qualified.

seriously? LOL!

 

Main Topic: I'm curiious what storyline they will use... The Arthas/Illidan FRozen throne plot is pretty good. All the plotlines in the actual MMO are too basic to make an interesting movie... (not like that would stop an enthusiastic yet idiot director/producer)

 

Edit: and now that I think about it, if the Thrall plotline/redemption of orcs would be the first time Orcs would be featured as the good guys in a major Hollywood movie!

Live action or full CGI movie?

 

No matter I suppose...it will make tons of cash because regardless if it's terrible or not all the fanboys will pay to see it.
