Director Sam Raimi Off World Of Warcraft Film
It looks like director Sam Raimi won't be making the World of Warcraft film due to his scheduling with another movie.
Talking to CraveOnline Raimi said, "Actually, they don't have me directing World of Warcraft anymore because when I took the Oz job [Oz: The Great And Powerful], they had to move on to another director. They had to start making it."
Raimi's last comment might indicate that the movie has or will start production soon, so perhaps all is not lost.
