Big news just in is that Legendary Pictures has set up production offices in Vancouver to film the new World of Warcraft movie in January 2014. I wonder if our favourite stuntman will be working on it, perhaps even stunt co-ordinating it.
World of Warcraft was one of his all-time favourite games. Could he fit it in with the baby on the way? I think it would be a spectacular opportunity and I hope he can. Legendary Pictures would be very fortunate to secure him to stunt co-ordinate WoW.
It wouldn’t be James’ first gig stunt co-ordinating a film based on a game. In 2012 he co-ordinated the very successful Halo 4 webseries, while in 2010 in co-ordinated the sequel to In the Name of the King, inspired by the Dungeon Siege game.
Hopefully more details will be revealed soon.
“Though this is popularly referred to as a “World of Warcraft movie,” in reality it’s a more general cinematic adaptation of the Warcraft universe, and as yet there are no details about what part of the fiction it might cover. A teaser trailer at San Diego Comic Con showed a human facing off against an orc in a mixture of live action and CG.”
No casting announcements yet, only rumours of Johnny Depp, but it is to be directed by Duncan Jones and written by Charles Leavitt.
UPDATE: James just told me that Arrow is not on hiatus during the filming of World of Warcraft so I guess he’s not working on it.
