You'd think that a film with a built-in audience of 11 million people would get off the ground sooner, but not the World of Warcraft movie. Like any Blizzard project, they're taking their own sweet time. Speaking with MTV Multiplayer during last week's Wrath of the Lich King launch in New York, Blizzard's director of product development Frank Pearce brought us up to date on the movie's status.
“Legendary Pictures is currently trying to assign some names to write the screenplay and find someone to direct it, so it’s still really early in production,” Pearce said. “They want to make sure they get the right talent for those different parts, especially the screenwriting, because that’s the foundation for the movie.”
