‘Source Code’ Director Duncan Jones to Helm ‘Warcraft’ Movie
Legendary Pictures’ live-action film adaptation of the ‘World of Warcraft’ video game universe has bagged a hugely credible director to sit at the helm, with Duncan Jones to direct Warcraft. This will see him make the leap to big tent-pole movies after ‘Moon’ and ‘Source Code’.
‘Warcraft’ has become one of the most popular multi-player online role-playing games on the planet, and could have a huge inbuilt audience providing those players will pry themselves away from the game to visit their local multiplex.
Jones’ previous two films have been greeted with universal praise and he has been a director to watch since ‘Moon’ emerged in 2009. ‘Warcraft’ is expected to have a budget 100 times greater than his first film’s $1 million.
