Reported by Outsiders - 2013.09.23
Deadline is reporting that Legendary Pictures and Atlas Entertainment have a short list of actors going up for multi-lead roles in the video game adaptation of World Of Warcraft. The short list is made up of Paul Dano, Travis Fimmel, Anson Mount and Star Trek‘s Anton Yelchin. Two main roles have already been offered to Paula Patton, who is in advanced negotiations and Colin Farrell.
The role-playing game takes place in a medieval-like setting where players control avatars that take on gryphons, dragons, zombies, werewolves and elves. Time travel and alien worlds also are part of the mix.
The adaptation is being helmed by Duncan Jones from a script that was written by Charles Leavitt. The project is one of Legendary’s biggest and was supposed to be made at Warner Bros. Production will begin in January, 2014.
