world-of-warcraft-logoThis is some of the most surprising piece of news that I’ve read all day, Sam Raimi has signed on to direct a live action World at Warcraft movie produced by Charles Roven, who produced The Dark Knight .  A WOW movie has been on the cards for some time now but I’ve always assumed it would be directed by some hack director and end up going straight to DVD.

The movie said to have a budget of over $100 million and as is aiming for a PG13 rating, whilst the rating may worry some remember that The Dark Knight had PG13 so I don’t think there’s too much to worry about.  It’ll be interesting to see what Raimi can bring to the film,  he’s a very visual director who always manages to do some very interesting things with the camera.   Whatever the case be thankful that Uwe Boll hasn’t got his hands on the license.
