World of Warcraft

Sam Raimi has been developing an expansive World of Warcraft movie for quite some time, but this year’s Comic-Con brought sad news for anyone wishing to see that universe brought to life in movie form. According to Crave Online, the director announced that he would not be moving forward with the project.

More specifically, his involvement and schedule for Oz the Great and Powerful meant he couldn’t direct WOW.

“…They don’t have me directing World of Warcraft anymore because when I took the Oz job, they had to move on to another director. They had to start making it,” said Raimi.

However, it’s unclear what director they’ve moved on to or at what stage of development the project is at. Of course, Blizzard Entertainment might have been too busy making sure Diablo III servers stopped crashing in order to make a few director phone calls. For now, let’s consider this news the equivalent of a loading bar that’s still half full. Or half empty, depending on how you look at it.
