Blizzard Says No To Uwe Boll
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | 11 comments

An MTV Movie Blog post recently revealed Blizzard Entertainment's reaction to a request by infamous film director Uwe Boll to adapt World of Warcraft into movie form. According to Boll, Blizzard's Paul Sams emphasized the company's particular disinterest in having him purchase the movie rights.

But if you’re not going to make a faithful adaptation, why make an adaptation at all? Apparently, the folks over at Blizzard wonder the same thing, since they practically laughed Boll out of their offices when he approached them about making a World of Warcraft adaptation, the director confessed.

“I got in contact with Paul Sams of Blizzard, and he said, ‘We will not sell the movie rights, not to you…especially not to you,’” Boll revealed. “Because it’s such a big online game success, maybe a bad movie would destroy that ongoing income, what the company has with it.”
