The World of Warcraft film has since left the hands of Spider-Man and Evil Dead director Sam Raimi, and into the capable hands of Moon director Duncan Jones. In a recent interview, Raimi explained why his planned version of the film fell apart.

It all comes down to timing, and a lack of Blizzard approval on the script Raimi wanted to turn into a film. Raimi and his writer Robert Rodat produced a script, but Blizzard didn't like it, and while Rodat began work on another script , Blizzard decided to move on. Raimi spoke about his experience working with Blizzard at Raimi seems understandably disappointed that he and Rodat began work on a second script when Blizzard was never fully on board with their story, but otherwise he doesn't seem too sour about his experience with the famed developer.
