Warcraft: The Movie

World of Warcraft Becomes Cinematic

from Dark Horizons

On the eve of the E3 convention, Warners-based Legendary Pictures has acquired movie rights to Blizzard's award-winning World of Warcraft video game series and plans to produce a live-action film based on the hugely popular property reports the trades.

The Warcraft game series, of which there are four titles, began in 1994. The current incarnation, a multi-player online universe, has over six million subscribers participating. In terms of popularity, only the Grand Theft Auto and Halo franchises rival that scale.

The movie would not follow one of the games but rather be set in the epic fantasy universe, which includes orcs, trolls, elves and the undead.
