Actress Paula Patton has entered negotiations for a leading role in Legendary Entertainment's video game adaptation World of Warcraft, with an offer going out to Colin Farrell for another starring role. Insiders claim that the actor is still unsure whether or not he will accept the offer, claiming there is a 50/50 chance he will star. No details were given regarding the characters.
There hasn't been much movement on the project since January, when Duncan Jones (Moon, Source Code) signed on to direct. We reported in August that production will begin January 13 at CMPP Studios in Vancouver.
No story details have been given. The World of Warcraft video game debuted on PC formats in 1994, where players from around the world take part in the epic conflict between the Horde and the Alliance. There have been several versions of the subscription-based multi-player online roleplaying game (MPORG), which blends elements of sci-fi, horror, and fantasy, since its inception.
