<font color="red">UPDATE:</font> MOON Director Duncan Jones Set To Helm WORLD OF WARCRAFT Movie

If you have been waiting for some news regarding the big screen adaptation of World of Warcraft, or you just can't wait for another big fantasy epic, then this is for you. Moon and Source Code director Duncan Jones will helm the film for Legendary Pictures. More after the jump...


Millions of fans of the popular video game have been patiently waiting to see a film based on the big Blizzard property. Warner Brothers hired Blood Diamond writer Charles Leavitt to pen the script a while back, but we heard nothing since. Well, here some great news -- Duncan Jones, best known for directing films such as Moon and Source Code, is set to helm Warcraft for Legendary Pictures. The Hollywood Reporter broke the news:

"The Warner Bros.-based production and finance outfit is eyeing a fall 2013 start and a 2015 release. Jones’ producing partner, Stuart Fenegan, will executive produce on behalf of their production company, Liberty Films. Chris Metzen will co-produce for Blizzard."
UPDATE: According to Tracking-Board.com, WB is looking for Johnny Depp to star in the film. Nothing is confirmed, so take it with a grain of salt for now:

"Warner Bros. may be making strides in the right direction with its long gestating WARCRAFT film, as there is interest for Johnny Depp to star."
Pretty great news, I must say. Jones is a brilliant director, and he proved that with two smart science fiction films (mentioned above). With a planned 2015 release date, that year just got even more awesome. What do you think of this news? Are you looking forward to the film?
