The lights are on
We've known that a World of Warcraft movie is in development, but today brings news about some of the actors that might be stepping into Azeroth. New rumors suggest that Colin Farrell (Minority Report, The Recruit) and Paula Patton (Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol, Swing Vote) have been offered leads.
Ain't It Cool News also reports a number of actors up for other roles, including Paul Dano (There Will Be Blood) and Anton Yelchin (Star Trek). You can see that list at AICN. The script is being penned by Charles Leavitt (Blood Diamond), and Duncan Jones (Moon, Source Code) is on board to direct.

Our TakeGiven that we know absolutely nothing about Leavitt's script, it's impossible to know how likely these casting rumors are. We don't know what character types any of the named actors might be filling, or even if the script connects to any of the established lore.
What we do know is that both the named actors are credible and might lend substance to the endeavor. Video game movies are tricky, and the more talent that can be put behind this one, the better.

this should be as good as the dungeon and dragons movie!!!! i can't wait!!!
Video Game Movies... some people on mmo-c used to think the movie would be based on the game and not the actual lore... like using game terminology throughout the movie. "LFR TANK FOR UBRS" >.>
This cast is somewhat disappointing too :(
if paula patton is gonna be some hot elf lady I'd be down
Well clearly a Sci-Fi...err I mean Sy-Fy movie to be aired on TV.
Let's hope they don't go down the way Universal did with Battleship, that ended up being something from the Cartoon Network. As far as casting is concerned,I would be very surprised to see Colin Farrell.
You're two days late on this.
Hahahaha, Colin Ferrell is terrible. Why do these Hollywood people always pick terrible actors?
So he's finally not ruining a classic horror or science fiction film from the 80's or 90's for once?
Why? Are they out of good actors now?
The hell?! O_o....This movie is still being made?
Just don't see how this adaptation works.
I want Paula Patton to be in pretty much every movie! :-)
