Sam Raimi Talks WORLD OF WARCRAFT Movie on the Red Carpet at the Saturn Awards

At tonight’s Saturn Awards here in Los Angeles I had the chance to talk to Sam Raimi on the red carpet.  While he’s been rumored to be doing Oz as his next project, when I spoke to him, all he wanted to talk about was World of Warcraft.  From the way he spoke, the man is really into the game and it sounded like that’s the project he really wants to do as his next film.  I also asked him about the rumors that he could be directing The Hobbit.  He seemed to think those were just online rumors and nothing more.

Since I have so much to post, for more info you should watch the interview after the jump.  I’ve time indexed the entire interview so you can read the questions.  For fans of the World of Warcraft game, make sure to watch his answer six minutes in.  You’ll love it.  Also, make sure to check back for a ton of other red carpet interviews. I have so many it’s crazy.
