Duncan Jones to direct Warcraft movie

Source Code, Duncan Jones

Story by Jack Foley

DUNCAN Jones, the acclaimed director of indie hits Moon and Source Code, is making the leap to blockbusters by opting to direct Warcraft.

Based on Blizzard Entertainment’s video game universe, the film is being adapted into a live-action adventure by Legendary Pictures with Charles Leavitt writing the under wraps script.

The game itself is part-fantasy, part science fiction, and includes elements such as dragons and orcs, zombies and werewolves and aliens and spaceships.

It therefore marks a big jump up in both scope and scale for Jones, the filmmaker son of David Bowie, but his work on Moon and Source Code has been impressive and that makes his vision for Warcraft highly intriguing.
