'Warcraft' Announces Official Release Date


The movie adaptation of video game 'World of Warcraft' will be released in theaters on December 18, 2015.

"Warcraft" is on a fast track, after a long delay since first being announced back in 2006. As casting to find the right actors is underway, the movie based on Blizzard's popular video game "World of Warcraft" sets an official release date on December 18, 2015.

"Source Code" director Duncan Jones is tapped to helm the live-action pic, while "Blood Diamond" scribe Charles Leavitt will write the script. It will be the first film released by Universal under a new distribution and co-financing partnership with Legendary.

The film will be set in a high-fantasy medieval-like world where gryphons, dragons, zombies, werewolves and elves exist. Colin Farrell and Paula Patton are linked to the project, along with the likes of Paul Dano, Travis Fimmel, Anson Mount and Anton Yelchin.

"Spider-Man" director Sam Raimi was initially attached to helm the film, but he bowed out last year. The project is now expected to start production in January 2014. A teaser of what's to come has been introduced by current director Jones at San Diego Comic-Con earlier this year.

According to the description circulating online, the video shows a desolate dry landscape full of rocky outcroppings, yet empty of life except for one scruffy armored loner. He picks up a fallen soldier's shield, which he later uses to defend himself against a hammer-wielding green creature.
