Legendary Pictures still thinks there is a metric shitton of money to be found among the indoor kids, as they’re still getting after a World of Warcraft movie that will undoubtedly be so epic in scope as to make Lord of the Rings look like Hotel for Dogs.
The guy who wrote Blood Diamond, Charles Leavitt, is polishing a second draft, and the producers are looking for a director who can turn this weird little world into something presentable onscreen. May I suggest Michael Bay? May I always suggest Michael Bay for every movie currently in development?
The project has been rattling around for years, but probably has taken a backseat due to the wide scope and undoubtedly astronomical budget in spite of its decidedly niche appeal.
Unless it’s all greenscreened, which would keep costs down and probably get the target market to wet its collective trousers.
