Duncan Jones’ WARCRAFT Set to Begin Filming on January 13th

The World of Warcraft movie is finally coming to fruition.  After Legendary showed off a highly promising reel of test footage from Moon director Duncan Jones’ adaptation at Comic-Con, the studio announced that filming would begin in early 2014.  Indeed it will, as Production Weekly now reports that filming on Warcraft is officially slated to begin on January 13th in Vancouver.  Casting has yet to be announced, but if the January date sticks then we should expect to hear word on that front very soon.

Recent rumors suggest that the film will be a full-blooded fantasy pic in the vein of The Lord of the Rings, and it’s said to more closely follow the real time strategy video games from the mid-90s instead of the current iteration of the game—that will be saved for further installments in the potential franchise.  Warcraft is being eyed for release in 2015.
