Raimi Taps "Saving Private Ryan"  Writer - World of Warcraft -

According to a report over at MTV News, Sam Raimi has tapped "Saving Private Ryan" screenwriter Robert Rodat to pen the upcoming Warcraft live-action movie. The article also features an audio interview with Raimi where he speaks briefly about the film.

Raimi on the film, and Rodat's involvement:

"We want to be really faithful to the the Horde and the Alliance and the mythology that takes place in the game, and the archetypes that the game presents. I think we would try and find touchstones within the game to make it accurate and true and choose one or some of the lands that are portrayed in the game with as much accuracy and authenticity as possible.

"But we would have our writer, Robert Rodat, really craft an original story within that world that feels like a 'World of WarCraft' adventure. Only obviously it's very different 'cause it's expanded and translated into the world of a motion picture."
