Screenwriter Discusses Original WoW Movie Script

While we're all patiently waiting to hear any sort of news regarding Sam Raimi's upcoming World of Warcraft movie, the latest episode of the 4 Guys 1UP podcast actually takes a look back at what the film could have been by talking to the original writer about his three drafts.

Raimi announced in October that "Saving Private Ryan" scribe Robert Rodat is on board to pen the WoW film. Former games journalist Gary Whitta was the movie's writer before Raimi was attached to the movie, and he told 1UP some general details about his proposed plot.

"I thought I did a good job that people who love the game would get a good account of the world. All the major races, all the major places, and some of the lesser known ones were in there. There were some cool Easter eggs if you really knew the game back to front," Whitta said. He also notes that Raimi had "a very different vision" for the film, so we'll just have to wait and see what the director has in mind for the WoW flick.

ZAM user axhed started a thread about this topic in our WoW general forum, so head over there to discuss the movie and interview.
