The cinematic version of ‘World of Warcraft,’ the immensely popular online role-playing game developed by Blizzard has been delayed by three months. Now, the epic big-screen movie will be released in June 2016, instead of March 2016.
According to Christian Today, ‘World of Warcraft’ is directed by Duncan Jones, who was earlier at the helm of notable science fiction films like ‘Moon’ and ‘Source Code.’ The experienced director, producer and screenwriter will now venture into the infinite cycle of warfare between orcs and humans.
The synopsis of the upcoming movie states that the ‘Vikings’ actor Travis Fimmel, who portrays the character of Sir Anduin Lothar, will lead the humans against the orcs. Sir Anduin Lothar is described as an ever-steadfast and charming knight who is always primed to keep the kingdom out of any harm.
Dominic Cooper portrays the character of King Llane Wrynn, the Stormwind leader. Ben Foster appears as Alliance’s guardian Medivh, who wields considerable power, while Ben Schnetzer plays the role of Khadgar, and Ruth Negga as Lady Taria.
As far as the Hordes as concerned, Toby Kebbell, who recently appeared in ‘Dawn of the Planet of the Apes,’ will portray the character of Durotan, the stately chieftain of the Frostwolf clan, who spends his life fighting for his family and people against the Shadow Council, which is driven by vendetta.
Rob Kazinsky will play the role of Durotan’s massively powerful right hand Orgrim Doomhammer, who also wields the orc legend weapon Doomhammer. Clancy Brown will portray the character of Blackhand, a war chief dreaded by many, while Daniel Wu is Gul’Dan a supreme orc ruler that wields dark magic, which is beyond his control. In addition, Paula Patton will play the iron-willed survivor Garona.
For those that may not know, ‘World of Warcraft’ is produced by Universal Pictures.
