'World of Warcraft' movie has a new writer
How long has the World of Warcraft movie been in development hell? Doesn’t it feel like we’ve been hearing rumors here and there about it for ages? Well here’s an actual update on the film. The studio behind Blizzard Entertainment’s popular MMORPG, Legendary Pictures, has announced that they’ve hired writer Charles Leavitt to write the screenplay.
Leavitt is best known for writing K-PAX (starring Jeff Bridges and Kevin Spacey) and Blood Diamond (starring Leonardo DiCaprio). It’ll be interesting to see what Leavitt comes up with. World of Warcraft has a deep and rich lore, of course being part of the Warcraft universe. Hardcore fans will be expecting a story that fits in with the lore and doesn’t screw anything up… eh hem, Resident Evil.
