Duncan Jones Hired By Legendary Pictures To Direct WARCRAFT
HeatVision reports British director Duncan Jones (Moon, Source Code) has been hired to helm the live-action film adaptation of the wildly popular fantasy video game series Warcraft. Previously, Sam Raimi had been hired to direct but left to make Oz, The Great And Powerful for Disney instead. It sounds like the studio is gearing up for some exciting genre-based projects including Guillermo del Toro's robots versus kaiju flick Pacific Rim and Gareth Edwards' Godzilla reboot. Legendary is looking to start production in the Fall and eying a 2015 release date.
