Colin Farrell in "World of Warcraft: The Movie"?

It's being reported that Colin Farrell, seen last year in the remake of "Total Recall" is in talk to integrate the cast of the upcoming "World of Warcraft" film.

The adaptation on the big screen of the most famous MMORPG, from Blizzard Entertainment, is being in development since years and very little is known about it.

Initially planned to be directed by Sam Raimi, the latest news were reporting that Duncan Jones, son of David Bowie, and director on "Moon," and "Source Code," is attached to the project with a script being written by Charles Leavitt.

Legendary Pictures is expecting to start filming in the beginning of 2014.

Released in 2004, "World of Warcraft", WoW for the initiates, has popularized the concept of Massively Multilayer Online Role Playing Game, and reached the threshold of 12 million players in 2010. Since, the community has slightly decreased, but still represents almost 8 million players worldwide.

Now, will this make a good movie? The question is legitimate! So far, all adaptations of video games have never really been successful. It seems like the video game industry has been more successful by integrating elements from movies into the game play and story telling of their games, but the opposite is not quite right. However, producers from Hollywood continues to believe that taking a famous and popular video game franchise and reproduce this success on the big screen. This is why, we "might" one day see movies such as "Call of Duty," (do you really need to buy the franchise rights, to make a film about shooting at anything moving?) , also "Halo," (that might be more interesting), or recently Ubi Soft announce the making of "Watch Dogs".

So wait and see.
