World of Moviecraft

Blizzard's Paul Sams discusses the nascent World of Warcraft movie. Will the screen adaptation be subtitled "Lord of the Core Fragments"?

He reckons the finished movie will end up "somewhere between Braveheart and Lord of the Rings"... So does that mean they'll be approaching Peter Jackson to direct?

"That's an obvious. Yeah, he would kick ass at this. But, you know, whether we can get him or whether he'd be interested... Who knows?"

Hmm. Maybe they'll pick Hans Zimmer instead of Howard Shore to do the soundtrack too; the waltzing leitmotif in the LotR movies was more appropriate for dancing than fighting. Enya was a nice touch though, in moderation. I digress.
