Casting confirmed for Duncan Jones' Warcraft movie

Lots of names have been confirmed for the upcoming Warcraft movie, which Duncan Jones will start shooting in January...

Universal Pictures and Legendary Pictures have confirmed the casting line-up for Duncan Jones' upcoming movie take on the Warcraft videogame. And as it turns out, some of the rumours that were doing the rounds had just a little substance to them.

The film is now set to star Ben Foster, Travis Fimmel (from the Vikings TV show), Paula Patton (Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol), Rob Kazinskey (Pacific Rim) and Toby Kebbell (The Counsellor). Furthermore, discussions are nearly done with Dominic Cooper - soon to be seen again in Captain America: The Winter Soldier - as well.

The film has recently been pushed back to a March 11th 2016 release date - you can blame Star Wars: Episode VII for that - but Jones (who has re-written the script) starts filming in January.

We're looking forward to this one, and as we hear more, we'll keep you posted...

Ben Foster makes everything better.

Like x-men 3 yeah?

Yes, he made it better. It's a smelly turd instead of a stinky turd of a movie.

I know next to nothing about WoW but it's by Duncan 'Moon' Jones and Rob Kadninsky is in the cast, which is good. And it's going to be released just before my birthday in 2016, so... result!

One question that needs to be answered mind... How in the name of the FSM is a certain Chesney Hawkes classic going to feature in the film? Inquiring minds and all that;)

Kebbell is excellent in everything he's in. Foster and Cooper are no slouches either. Good casting so far.
