Sam Raimi Will No Longer Direct ‘World Of Warcraft’ Movie Adaptation

World of Warcraft

With Oz: The Great and Powerful set for a March 2013 release, World of Warcraft fans hoped that director Sam Raimi would be moving on to direct an adaptation of the massively popular MMORPG. But in the two years since it was announced that Raimi would be directing the film, there has been no solid developments, and things weren’t looking good for the adaptation.

Now a new interview confirms every World of Warcraft player’s worst fears: Raimi is not directing the big screen adaptation, a film that has been stuck in development hell for a very long time.

According to an interview with Crave Online, Raimi was unable to make his commitment to direct the adaptation of the World of Warcraft, because of his obligations to direct Oz: The Great and Powerful over at Disney. Robert Rodat (Saving Private Ryan) has already turned in a script, so one of the pieces are already set in place. But it doesn’t do the people at Activision Blizzard any good to have just a script, without a director, the script is just a pile of paper collecting dust.

And who’s to say that they will stick with it? For all we know they could hire a new writer or just start over with square one. Without knowing any other bits of information, it’s hard to determine the state of the World of Warcraft movie.

But as more and more MMORPG games start to pop up, it will become increasingly difficult to get fans interested in a movie like World of Warcraft.

Fans of the game can only hope that a director is found soon.
