Blizzard Entertainment Inc. and Legendary Pictures have agreed to partner up and make a live action film based on their very popular video game, Warcraft.
The Warcraft games debuted in 1994; the franchise now has four titles in release including Warcraft II: Tides of Darkness which won multiple game of the year awards, while Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos broke sales records. The latest game, World of Warcraft is one of the most popular multiplayer online role-playing games, with a reported subscription base of more than 6 million.
The Hollywood Reporter adds the movie would not follow one of the games but rather be set in the epic fantasy universe, which includes orcs, trolls, elves and the undead.
No production schedule has been set for the film.
