The lights are on
Though the cast isn't officially confirmed, Legendary Pictures' World of Warcraft film has a release date.
The film which is now slated to be directed by Source Code/Moon director Duncan Jones is scheduled to being filming sometime in 2014. It's also rumored to be starring Colin Farrell and Paula Patton. While much is up in the air, Blizzard feels comfortable enough about the project to tweet and official release date: December 18, 2015.

Our Take:Like everyone else, I'm skeptical about video game film adaptations - and for good reason. That said, Moon and Source Code are two of my favorite recent sci-fi movies, so they've definitely picked a skilled director in Duncan Jones. He's also not afraid to go away from staid Hollywood formulas, something that bodes well for the project.
