The World of Warcraft movie may be without a director after Sam Raimi revealed he was no longer working on the project, but the movie may not have completely stalled. According to Variety, a script from Charles Leavitt for the project has got Legendary Pictures quite excited.
Charles Leavitt has penned scripts for movies such as the upcoming ‘The Seventh Son’ as well as ‘Blood Diamond’, ‘The Mighty’ and ‘K-PAX’.
The WoW movie has been in limbo for years, and when asked about Blizzard’s support for the movie, Activision Blizzard CEO Bobby Kotik told Variety: “it’s important to Blizzard, it’s important to me. They’re very excited about having a ‘World of Warcraft’ film. They’ve been very careful and thoughtful about the development process.”
If the script fits then it could push Legendary to find a new director, but it will have to be passed by Blizzard. That could be a stumbling block, Blizzard will want as much control as possible over the movie.
