Spider-Man writer-director Sam Raimi has signed on to direct the movie adaptation of World of Warcraft, according to Variety. The film is being bankrolled and distributed by Warner Bros. and produced by Legendary Pictures and Blizzard Entertainment, which makes the popular online roleplaying game.
Raimi’s experience producing TV’s Hercules, Xena: Warrior Princess and, more recently, Legend of the Seeker should come in handy for this long-awaited fantasy project.
