After a long time in development limbo, Duncan Jones’ World of Warcraft film adaptation is good to go, with filming scheduled to begin in the new year, according to a Production Weekly report. The report states that the filming will be done in Vancouver on January 13, 2014, with the targeted release date being 2015.
Plot details are still few and far in between, but we have reason to believe that an Orc will get hit by a hammer somewhere in the film. Additionally, there are rumors floating around saying that the film will draw inspiration from the original RTS games instead of the popular MMORPG. What this means is that the story’s going to be a lot less convoluted as the original games had a far more straightforward story between Orcs and Humans because the other races weren’t introduced until the 3rd game, Frozen Throne.
