Legendary Pictures and Universal Pictures just announced that they’ve closed deals with Ben Foster (3:10 to Yuma), Travis Fimmel (Vikings), Paula Patton (Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol), Toby Kebbell (The Counselor), and Rob Kazinsky (Pacific Rim) for writer-director Duncan Jones’ Warcraft.  Dominic Cooper (Captain America: The First Avenger) is also in final negotiations to star.  Production is scheduled to begin in Vancouver this coming January.  Warcraft will open March 11, 2016.  Hit the jump for more.

ben-foster-warcraftUnfortunately, no casting details are available at the moment, and the order of the casting announcement is not indicative of the final film’s billing.  News out of BlizzCon 2013 did tell us that the Warcraft film adaptation would tell “the story of Anduin Lothar versus Durotan, Human and Orc heroes from the original real-time strategy games.”  Your guess is as good as mine as for who will be taking on which role when the film kicks into gear.

Foster can next be seen in Peter Berg’s Lone Survivor opposite Mark Wahlberg, and is currently filming Stephen Frears’ untitled Lance Armstrong picture in the lead role.  Fimmel has been in the mix for some time, as has Patton, who was recently seen on screen in both Baggage Claim and 2 Guns.  Kebbell will next star in Dawn of the Planet of the Apes in the role of Koba the ape.  Cooper will take to the screen in a number of films, including Need for Speed, Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Universal’s Dracula Untold, directed by Gary Shore and starring Luke Evans in the lead.
