    I think there will possibly be a movie on Warcraft 3, Famous games turn in to movies all the time such as..
    Doom,Mortal Kombat and many others. So i would say there is probably a chance that it will happen. (hopefully it wont take as long as the simpsons movie)

    The problem with doom and mortal kombat and such was that they where considered as 'bad' movies .. i still didnt look any game-based movie .. but i think a WoW Movie would surely scare some ppl because the WoW vibe,but also attract a lot of fans. And i finaly hope that ppl can see a game based movie can be rly good ( Warcraft is just like LOTR but then better! ).

    They can and knowing the ammount of effort they are putting into WoW they probably will.

    Probably will be junk anyway featuring the death of some famed hero that will leave so people stuned at how it could happen.

    Well anyway lets not spread fiction about Wc movie lets just wait and see since anyway, anything we say makes no differerence.

    You know why that movie sucked? Because the book sucked. As I explained to everyone who would listen when the movie came out, this book/movie is taking the star wars plot line, changing some names, and then putting it into a dragons and elves and magic setting.

    Yes, they ARE apparently making a warcraft movie, I remember seeing the news about it way back when it was announced. It isn't going anywhere as of now because there hasen't been any news on it... but here's the deal: Every video game ever turned into a movie has sucked. Every single one. They've all been absolutely horrible. I expect that, as hard as Blizzard tries, The WC movie will end up the same. The only movie that will ever break this curse (possibly) is the Halo movie. Ya know why? Peter Jackson is on board as Director, and he hasen't made a crappy movie yet.

    No, because if it's just like LOTR then it will be booed as a ripoff. I don't think Blizzard can win here. It has to be high quality and original. Borrowing from another popular franchise to enhance their own standing will not help them when the critics come calling. Unless they get someone good onboard as a director, producer or screenwriter etc, or they find some phenominal underground talent in a rising prodigy, this movie will end up in the trash along with doom, house of the dead, bloodrayne and all the others...

    i dont think that ... with 'It would be like LOTR but then better' i ment it has the same style .. and nothing is stolen because the Warcraft universe exists longer then LOTR universe? .. just guessing .. but anyway i ment the same atmosphere (with LOTR thingy) not stealing LOTR ideas..

    And omg .. what are u talking about a scripter?? i say: 'TOTAL FUCKING NONSENSE!! OMG!!' what you think the past three warcraft games and even more had? they had a story? and a past? even warcraft boosk? why the hell they need a scripter for? tell me? .. they want to create the WARCRAFT HISTORY and the STORYLINE .. so they dont need a scripter because they already have the script/story? .. yeah this was a bit overreacted but its rly making to sense o_O!

    Ah hello, do you see a manuscript for a warcraft movie sitting anywhere? NO. Someone has to write that script, even if it is based on previously created material. That SOMEONE has the potential to FUCK UP VERY BADLY by taking the story in the COMPLETELY WRONG DIRECTION. Also, Lord of the Rings originally came out in 1955. It predates Warcraft by 40 years? or so. The earliest workings of the Silmarillion where formulating long before that while Tolkien was fighting in WORLD WAR 1. Don't mean to sound harsh, but you are completely wrong here.

    THE BOOK WAS WRITTEN IN 1955. THE MOVIE IS BASED ON THE BOOK. FOR THE LOVE OF GOD. They decided to make a series of movies based on the books just recently, the books have been out since 1955. And no, because WC3 has only had a broad overview. They wont tell a story that's already been told through the game, so they'll take something, a scrap of information if you will, and make a movie about it, and create their own story from there. It'd exactly what Blizzard is doing with the WoW story right now. Someone has to make that story, even if it is based on preexisting information, someone has to take that and make it into a script. And this script has to get in depth and detailed into characters, heroes and their emotions, what their perspective is. We only see things from a broad perspective in WC3 and now we have to see it through the eyes of a hero. It will be hard to adapt to this and make it work, which is why I think the movie will fail.
