For months now, rumors have been circulating around the internet as to what actors/actresses may be cast in the lead roles for the upcoming ‘Warcraft’ film. One of those names being tossed around is Saving Mr. Banks actor Colin Farrell. When asked by IGN for information about his involvement in the project, without giving anything away, I think he was pretty clear that he liked the script.

Don’t know what’s happening, man. I read the script, if that’s any use to you, and it’s amazing.” he said. “I don’t know what’s happening with the film. I don’t know where they are in the process. The script was just really, really cool, and it’s just a world that I never explored — and it’s a really big and fantastical world.”

Farrell also goes on to praise director Duncan Jones, and references the amazing things he was able to accomplish in his film Moon.

I can’t imagine what he, being as visually gifted as he is, Duncan, and what he did on Moon with, like, a dime, I can’t imagine what he’d do with this Warcraft.”

When he was asked what character he was being considered for, he is really tight lipped. This is no surprise as details on the casting and the plot have not been publically discussed in great detail.

From what I have heard around the internet, the film, based on the widely popular MMORPG (Massively Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game for those of you who don’t speak geek) by Blizzard Entertainment, is going to center on the conflict between Anduin Lothar, a general of the Stormwind army, and Durotan, the leader of the Frostwolf Clan of Orcs, and father to Thrall.

The script for the film was developed by Charles Leavitt and Duncan Jones.

The film is currently in pre-production and is set to begin filming in early 2014.

Warcraft is scheduled to be released on December 18, 2015.

    This will either be really really good, or just bad. Like Wayans brothers in the D&D movie bad. No grey area here.
