Sam Raimi to Direct Warcraft Movie

Blizzard announced yesterday that a Warcraft movie will be coming in the future, and Sam Raimi is on board to direct. This seems both crazy and exciting at the same time, Raimi is obviously well established and I think he could do a really good job on a Warcraft movie. Warcraft can be dark, but can also be fun, and we've seen both of those sides from Raimi already. Here's what Raimi had to say on the project:

"At its core, Warcraft is a fantastic, action-packed story," said Raimi. "I am thrilled to work with such a dynamite production team to bring this project to the big screen."

Raimi is not the only big name on the project either, Charles Roven will be brining in his Atlus Entertainment producing company, who produced The Dark Knight. They will be working alongside Raimi's Stars Road Entertainment in order to make sure the movie is well promoted. With the huge success of The Dark Knight, I'm guessing Atlus Entertainment can definitely help a lot in promoting this movie. I have high hopes that the movie will be as good as it can be, and here's hoping it is.
