Epic! Duncan Jones is the new helmer for the video game adaptation of Warcraft
Jones has directed MOON with Sam Rockwell and SOURCE CODE starring Jake Gyllenhaal. I thought MOON was a fantastic debut from Jones, who seems to have a wonderful knack with the sci-fi genre. The script from Charles Leavitt (BLOOD DIAMOND, K-PAX) is being kept under wraps so there's not much we can tell you about the script aside from the basic idea of the video game. So much love for K-PAK, though.
Now let me get technical here for a second: THR refers to the project as a video game adaptation of WARCRAFT (RTS: real time strategy), which is different from WORLD OF WARCRAFT (MMORPG: massively multiplayer online roleplaying game). WARCRAFT is a gaming franchise consisting of these four core games: Warcraft: Orcs & Humans, Warcraft II: Tides of Darkness, Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos, and World of Warcraft. If they decide to go with the first game it's basically what the game title says it is: orcs vs. humans in a medieval fantasy setting. Each game could serve as sequels in a film franchise.
This is a major film for Jones to take on, and could open up many doors for him. So excited!
