UPDATE: Warcaft Rise of The Lich King (2011)
Sam Raimi (Spider-Man, Evil Dead) will direct the epic fantasy based video game adaptation. I'm sure it's the studio's thought to capitalize on the massive following of both World of Warcraft and LOTR fandom. Raimi isn't new to the fantasy genre with Army of Darkness .Robert Rodat has been hired to write the screenplay. Since a majority of video game based films have been disasters it's good news that they've hired both a solid writer and director. Rodat has written screenplays for Saving Private Ryan and The Patriot.
