After quitting "Spiderman IV" it seems Sam Raimi's next project will be "Warcraft". Here's what one of the insiders said in an interview for "Ain't it Cool News":
Well, I chatted with someone that knows - and I feel confident in saying that the next film we'll see from Raimi is going to be Warcraft... which after Avatar, the concept of world building that particular universe could be astonishing - especially in 3D - especially after what Cameron just unleashed upon the globe. World creating Science Fiction & Fantasy... done by visionary filmmakers ... well, it is a premium. We got The Hobbit coming, looks like an Avatar 2... but the word I hear is that today - the phone lines were burning between a certain legendary locale (Legendary Pictures producing the movie) and Raimi's folks about firing up the furnaces to forge the weapons of war.

Here's the story of the future "Warcraft: The Rise of The Lich King" movie: Lord of the undead Scourge, wielder of the runeblade Frostmourne, and enemy of the free peoples of Azeroth, The Lich King is an entity of incalculable power and unparalleled malice and his icy soul is utterly consumed by his plans to destroy all life on the World of Warcraft. But it was not always so. Long before his soul was fused with that of the orc shaman Ner'zhul, the Lich King was Arthas Menethil, crown prince of Lordaeron and faithful paladin of the Silver Hand. When a plague of undeath threatened all that he loved, Arthas was driven to pursue an ill-fated quest for a runeblade powerful enough to save his homeland. Yet the object of his search would exact a heavy price from its new master, beginning with a horrifying descent into damnation. Arthas's path would lead him through the arctic northern wastes toward the Frozen Throne, where he would face, at long last, the darkest of destinies.


  1. No WoW fans here? :) I guess they're too busy playing it day and night to check out movie blogs. (no offense there, WoW fans :) )

    I'm not a WoW player, but I played Warcraft 3 well enough, so I'm quite familiar with story and characters.
    I'm very interested who will act in this movie. Especially who will play Arthas himself.

  2. Ah, Bels, don't you remember that nobody commented last time we had WOW post either :) Strange, I'm not a fan of video games, you know that better than anyone else, but this promises to be an avatarish or LOTRish type of spectacle.

  3. I am a little disappointed with the cancellation of "Spiderman IV" but I can't wait either to watch WoW film!

  4. Oh, I gave up from Spidy after the horrible third part, but I am anxious about Wow, although I've never played the game.
