It seems one of Sam Raimi's anticipated projects has finally found a writer. According to MTV Movies Blog, Saving Private Ryan screenwriter Robert Rodat will be writing the Warcraft film for director Sam Raimi.
Raimi himself confirmed Rodat's involvement to the site and also shed some light on the film's story. Here's an excerpt from the site's piece.
The aim is to adapt the game, rather than a previously conceived story written within that world. "We want to be really faithful to the game," Raimi said. "We would have our writer, Robert Rodat, really craft an original story within that world that feels like a 'World of WarCraft' adventure. Only obviously it's very different 'cause it's expanded and translated into the world of a motion picture."
