After a gestation period that has not been short, the long-mooted Warcraft movie looks like it's going to finally start shooting in January. The unconfirmed news has been broken by Production Weekly, which Tweeted that Legendary Pictures has set up offices at CMPP Studios in Vancouver. It cites a shooting start date for the feature of January 13th 2014.
As part of the split between Warner Bros and Legendary Pictures, the former had an option as to whether to distribute the Warcraft movie. It declined, and Universal was next in line. Again, while there's been no official confirmation, it would appear that the studio has agreed to pick up distribution duties.
Warcraft was, once upon a time, being developed by Sam Raimi as a project to direct. However, when he left the film, in stepped Moon and Source Code helmer Duncan Jones. Given the strength of Duncan Jones' directorial record to date, the news of his appointment understandably went down very, very well. Not least here.
The plan remains to have the Warcraft film in cinemas in 2015, it seems. As we hear more about it, we'll let you know...
