Default Sam Raimi to direct Warcraft movie

Ars Technica link.

I hope they do a good job with this movie! Hopefully it is LoTR quality or better.

Just seems odd to me, I'm sure Legendary tossed Rami about a billion dollars to do it (or a cut of the WoW subscription fees). The track record of video game movies is terrible.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of...on_video_games

Pick the watchable movies off that list, it is only a handful. I wouldn't own any of them.

Who knows, maybe he'll make the Dark Knight of Video Game movies. The bar is set so low on the sub-genre that making a watchable, coherent movie would be considered a master-piece.

Of that list, Hitman was the only one that I actually liked... at all.

Side note: The burning town of Silent Hill is loosely based on an actual place in Pennsylvania called Centralia. In the 1960's the people of the town set fire to a large trash pile that just so happened to be at the end of a large coal vein - by large I mean it was under the entire town. The town has been on fire, underground, ever since. The Feds paid for most of the town to relocate but somewhere around eight people still live there, they've even had their zip code revoked.

But as for Sam Raimi's theatrical release is concerned, the upcoming 2011 film is now slated as Warcraft: The Rise of the Lich King.
The upcoming Warcraft movie may be centered on Arthas Menethil's path to the dark side.
