World of Warcraft And Diablo Movies In Development
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | 8 comments

Legendary Pictures recently updated the "In Development" section of its website with the inclusion of World of Warcraft and Diablo movie listings. Early last year the company announced it had purchased the rights to produce a movie adaption of WoW. Since the Diablo project has not yet been announced in a press release, it is possible the movie is about something other than Blizzard's popular action RPG.

More about the World of Warcraft movie:

"From our first Warcraft game to our latest novels, our intention has always been to develop a rich fantasy universe that could support stories and products in many forms," stated Chris Metzen, Blizzard Entertainment's vice president of creative development. "In addition to being a truly rewarding experience for us, the creation of this motion picture also feels like a natural next step for the Warcraft universe."

"It's not always the case that interactive game properties lend themselves to proper adaptation to film," said Jon Jashni, Legendary Pictures' chief creative officer. "We are intending to approach this as we would the adaptation of a best-selling novel: respect the essence of all that it is but also build upon that fertile base while translating it into a new medium."

There are, as of yet, no specific details about storylines or casting for either film. Click over to the Legendary Pictures website to learn more about the company and its projects.
