I just found this article and thought I'd post it here. :)

Registration is required (it's free though) but here is the beginning of the article:

LOS ANGELES, May 8 For years, Hollywood has talked about the supposed convergence of films and video games. And for years, the primary results have been low-budget movies based on games, and uninspired games based on films.

On Tuesday, Blizzard Entertainment, a leading game developer, hopes to reverse that trend as it plans to announces a deal with Legendary Pictures, a major Warner Brothers affiliate, to make a big-budget "Lord of the Rings"-style live-action film based on Blizzard's wildly popular Warcraft series.

Heh they are quite ambitious to be on the same scale as Lord of the Rings. I'm curious how it will turn out myself <G>

As long as Rexxar owns, that's all that matters.

please let it be a live action roleplay of people acting like they're in WoW.

"Lightning Bolt, Lightning Bolt!"

"Oh shit! Pally Shield Up! Hearthstone!"

They have been pitching the idea of a full length movie since WC3 came out.


If you listen to tracks on their collectors edition they discuss it at that point.
