World of <strong><em>Warcraft</em></strong> may be Raimi's next
I'm sure we'll be hearing much more about from the fallout of yesterday's news that rocked Hollywood and it seems those left behind are moving on. Ain't It Cool News is reporting that Sam Raimi could be moving on to direct Warcraft: Rise of the Lich King now that he's not directing Spider-Man 4.

We announced Raimi's involvement in the film last July, but it wasn't clear when he would direct the film. Here's an excerpt from the site's article.

Well, I chatted with someone that knows - and I feel confident in saying that the next film we'll see from Raimi is going to be Warcraft... which after Avatar, the concept of world building that particular universe could be astonishing - especially in 3D - especially after what Cameron just unleashed upon the globe. World creating Science Fiction & Fantasy... done by visionary filmmakers ... well, it is a premium. We got The Hobbit coming, looks like an Avatar 2... but the word I hear is that today - the phone lines were burning between a certain legendary locale and Raimi's folks about firing up the furnaces to forge the weapons of war.

The "legendary locale" they're referring to could mean Legendary Pictures, which is on board producing the Warcraft film.

We'll be sure to keep you posted on any and all developments with Raimi's Warcraft|+|Warcraft: Rise of the Lich King} film as soon as we have more information.
