The lights are on
In an interview with MTV Multiplayer, Blizzard's Rob Pardo speculates that a StarCraft movie is a possibility – if the company found the right partner."We've always had an interest in seeing our stuff on film or TV... I think if Jim Cameron came to us tomorrow and said, 'You want to make a 'StarCraft' movie?' we'd probably sign that," said Pardo.Pardo feels that the company has found the right partnership for its World of WarCraft movie, which is being developed by Avi Arad’s (Spider-Man series, Iron Man 1 & 2) Legendary Pictures and directed by Hollywood legend Sam Raimi (Spider-Man, Evil Dead). Pardo reveals that the WarCraft film is “still in the that story-development phase,” but that the company is “super excited about [the project].”Cameron and StarCraft seem like a match made in heaven. So, what do you think? What Hollywood director would you like to see bring the legendary RTS franchise to the big screen?

Christopher Nolan. Everything he touches turns to gold.
Hmmm interesting. I know i'd see a starcraft movie not made by Ewe Boll.
James Cameron would make a visual feast with little in the way of a story, even though it's already developed. Christopher Nolan would make a good choice because he made some compelling movies for the already made Batman franchise. In all honesty, I'd like to see Sam Raimi do it if he does a superb job with Warcraft. Spiderman 2 is still one of my favorites.
I can see this happening
James Cameron and Halo.
Hmm, how about J.J. Abrams once he finishes some more Star Trek movies?
I sure hope out of all this news about video game movies that Frank O'Connor is deciding who should direct the Halo Movie['s] (PLEASE BE PETER JACKSON) the fiction is rich and teeming with life and the cunning desire for more exploration deeper into the universe.
Would probably be awesome.
I agree with Bbrainss, a StarCraft movie NOT directed by Ewe Boll could be great, although I'm not very familiar with the StarCraft lore.
Awesome, is say ron perlman for tychus
Considering how much video games/sci-fi as a whole has been effected by James Cameron, it seems like the perfect match up to me. I doubt it would ever happen, but the definition of epic would need to be re-written just for this film...
I say keep it with Raimi if he does a good job with the Warcraft one, but Cameron would be a good alternative. Or if you want to make the zerg uber nasty/scary, Del Toro.
I think Cameron sounds right. Hopefully he doesn't just make it to get a lot of money like with Avatar.
Let the guy who directed the trailer for the game do it!!!!!!
Well, uhh i guess that isn't the worst as long as on the title it isn't "james camerons starcraft" , though i have to say he has a thing for trying to put a message theme in his movies "IE Aliens, avatar" and i would hate to see that happen also i hate directors who try to make it "their re-imagining of the beloved thing" IM LOOKING AT YOU HARRY POTTER 3
After completeing the Wings of Liberty chapter of starcraft 2, i hope James cameron deciedes to do this. I loved Avatar, because of its story, for the cg that looked so well, it was well made. I loved every movie he has directed or been part of. I hope he does it, from the cinimatic point of view of this game, blizzard was on the spot. As i played it, it gave me goose bumps from the begining to the end. As will the movie if its done correctly. And Christopher Nolan, his movies are jaw dropping as well. He is one of my favorite directors besides J.C. His take on the batman, not only the best ever made, but he actually used the classic batman, and brought him back to life. He told the tale of the real dark knight through his own way. I think thats what made such a great movie. I'm tied between the two, but i hope blizzard doesn't pond it off to any director, keep the standereds high, to make this a actuall success. My point of view.
Umm I have played starcraft at LEAST once a week for many years can I still could not tell you what the story is... it isn't that good... Same for the old Warcraft games
I don't really care, as long as it's good.
makes a little more sense than a warcraft movie.
