Duncan Jones‘ fantasy adaptation Warcraft is gearing up to begin production in January, so the casting process is underway.  Yesterday, we reported that Colin Farrell had been offered a lead role, and Paula Patton was in negotiations.  Deadline has now updated their story to report that the production is also looking at Paul Dano (Prisoners), Anton Yelchin (Star Trek), Travis Fimmel (History Channel’s Vikings), and Anson Mount (Hell on Wheels) for roles.  There are no details on who they might play, or if they’re each being offered a different role.

Given their looks and star power, I could see Dano and Yelchin competing for the same role, and Fimmel and Mount competing for another role.  Dano and Yelchin are both skinny, around the same height, and are known mostly for their supporting work.  Fimmel and Mount are the rugged, leading men from their respective TV shows.  We’ll see how it all comes together in the weeks ahead.
