Warcraft movie to have a subtitle, ‘Warcraft: The Rise Of The Lich King’? October 11th, 2009

MTV are report­ing that the movie adap­ta­tion of War­craft now appears to have a title, ‘War­craft: The Rise Of The Lich King’. The title falls in-line with a recently released NY Times best-selling book, “Arthas: Rise of the Lich King”. How­ever, they cite the source of this infor­ma­tion to be the unre­li­able and socially pow­ered IMDB​.com, which has since removed the phrase.

If we are to believe the sub­ti­tle and that the movie will fol­low in the foot­steps of the book, then the plot would revolve around Arthas Menethil,

a once-noble prince and war­rior who becomes a fear­some tyrant known as the Lich King.

I’d take this with a big grain of salt and instead wait for some offi­cial word.

A Diablo Movie June 22nd, 2007

Bliz­zard is hot right now, what with Star­craft 2 on its way and WoW con­tin­u­ing to dom­i­nate. Now we are hear­ing rumors of a Dia­blo adap­ta­tion for the big screen. These rumors came about when “Dia­blo” was spot­ted in the “In Devel­op­ment” sec­tion of Leg­endary Pic­tures’ web­site. This notice has since been removed and Bliz­zard have been char­ac­ter­is­ti­cally silent on the whole mat­ter. Com­ing from an offi­cial source this is hard to clas­sify as merely rumor, though lack of an offi­cial press state­ment and the notice’s removal does war­rant this labelling.

Nobody really knows what’s going on at the moment — except that the War­craft Motion Pic­ture is still in development.

We’ll keep you tuned should any devel­op­ments arise.

Movie Titles & Trilogy Rumors April 16th, 2007

An undis­closed source at a news site called “The Instance” claims to have insider infor­ma­tion with regards to the War­craft movie adap­ta­tion. At such an early stage any infor­ma­tion like this is most cer­tainly false and this has been clas­si­fied as a rumor — which is giv­ing this far too much credit. Im not even sure actors are involved in the process yet — firstly a direc­tor needs to be named.

If you see this infor­ma­tion repeated any­where, know that this was an April Fool’s joke/prank. Peo­ple have been talk­ing about these details as if they were facts and I am dis­pelling them now.

I’m a per­sonal assis­tant for a very well-known actor, and I’ve just handed him a com­plete script treat­ment for the new War­craft movie. It’s going to be called “War­craft: The Fall of Quel’Thalas”, and it looks like it may be the first of a pro­posed tril­ogy, with a sec­ond part called “The Cav­erns Of Time” and the final install­ment called “The Bat­tle Of Mount Hyjal”.

With the suc­cess of LotR though, every­thing seems des­tined for a tril­ogy these days.
