Universal Pictures Reveals Warcraft Cast List

Universal Pictures has revealed the official cast list for its upcoming adaptation of Blizzard Entertainment’s Warcraft franchise.

The film will star Ben Foster (The Messenger, X-Men: The Last Stand), Paula Patton (2 Guns, Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol), Travis Fimmel (Vikings), Toby Kebbell (Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes), and Rob Kazinsky (True Blood, Pacific Rim).

Universal also confirmed that it is in the final stages of negotiations with Dominic Cooper (Captain America, Mamma Mia!) to star in the film.

The film is set to begin production in Vancouver in January 2014, according to Legendary Pictures. Last month, it was revealed that the film had been rescheduled to a March 11, 2016 launch. It was originally slated to hit cinemas on December 18, 2015, but was delayed a few months. A possible reason for the delay is the release of Star Wars: Episode VII on December 18, 2015.

Warcraft is set to focus on the characters Lothar and Durotan, and will tell the story of the beginning of the war between the humans and orcs, according to director Duncan Jones.
