Director Duncan Jones Now in Charge of World of Warcraft Movie

Posted on January 31, 2013 AT 02:23am

Director Duncan Jones–known for Moon and Source Code–has stepped in to take over the World of Warcraft movie.

Originally Spider-Man director Sam Raimi was acting as director, but after he left to work on Oz a replacement was needed. Jones apparently jumped at the chance. Thomas Tull and Jon Jashni of Legendary Pictures are set to produce with Blizzard and Atlas Entertainment’s Charles Roven and Alex Gartner.

The script is being written by Charles Leavitt, but no details are known about the film so far. Filming is set to begin in fall this year for a 2015 release.

Matthew Bennett, Associate Editor

An ability to go many hours without sleep and a quick wit make him ideal for his role as associate editor at He often thinks back to the days when the very idea of this career seemed like nothing but an impossible dream.
