World Of Warcraft film director confirmed

Duncan Jones, the director behind Source Code and Moon, is set to direct a movie adaptation of World Of Warcraft

 

Blizzard's world-conquering fnatasy MMO just took a huge step towards the prospect of being adapted for the Silver Screen. The World Of Warcraft movie now has a director attached in the form of Duncan Jones.

By all accounts, this sounds rather positive. Jones's last two film credits were the claustrophobic, existential sci fi drama starring Sam Rockwell, Moon and Source Code, a Philip K. Dick-esque high-concept thriller headed up by Jake Gyllenhaal. Here's hoping Jones is able to bring some of his cerebral film-making qualities to an adaptation of one of the world's biggest videogames.

He'll certainly have his work cut out for him. As anyone who has ever sat through one knows, film adaptations of videogames range from the decidedly average to the horribly unwatchable - even though a lot of them perform reasonably well at the box office.

This is a trend that hasn't gone unnoticed by the gaming industry. Recently, Ubisoft moved to set up its own film production studio in order to exercise some creative control in the efforts to translate its game franchises to the big screen.
