Director Duncan Jones presented the Warcraft movie at BlizzCon 2013 on Saturday, and thanks to Kotaku we got some information about the project.
The story of the film will center on Anduin Lothar versus Durotan, Human and Orc heroes from the original real-time strategy games.
The movie will also be focused largely in the Eastern Kingdoms of Azeroth.
When Jones originally signed on, the script was more it was very human and Alliance centric. “It’s about both sides. It’s going to be red and blue.” He wants the movie’s audience to feel for the Orc heroes as much as they do the Human ones, said the site.
Special effects supervisor Bill Westenhofer compared the tone of the film to Gladiator and said, “The swords that are being built are the biggest swords a human being can wield.” Mayes Rubeo, costume designer for Apocalypto, Avatar, John Carter and World War Z, will be doing the costumes.
Four pieces of concept art were also revealed and included Draenor, Dalaran, Ironforge and Stormwind.
While no casting was confirmed for the Universal Pictures and Legendary Pictures release, Colin Farrell, Paula Patton and Travis Fimmel are rumored to be starring.
