One of the biggest announcements to come out of Comic-Con this year (besides Batman and Superman teaming up) was the official announcement of the World of Warcraft movie, which is will be headed by director Duncan Jones.
During the Warner Bros/Paramount panel at the San Diego Comic Con, Mr. Jones expressed how lucky he is and that not many filmmakers get the chance to do what he is doing.
“The opportunity to do something like Warcraft is a once-in-a-lifetime thing. You hope that you’re going to get the chance to make films where you really get to delve into fantasy,” Jones said. “And with Warcraft, I actually get to create a world and there’s not that many filmmakers who get the chance to start from scratch and build something that big. I know how lucky I am and I am so excited to do it.”
Jones also talked about the challenge of tackling a franchise that over a million people world-wide are familiar with.
“I’m well aware of it. And a lot of people who are my friends play and I used to play. I’m very aware of what the goal is there to achieve,” he said.
A teaser for the movie was shown at the panel but no official video has been released.
