Sam Raimi to direct World of Warcraft movie

By  

Blizzard Entertainment, creators of the oh-so-successful World of Warcraft online computer game, announced last night that Sam Raimi has been tagged to direct the movie based on the game. Raimi is most recently known for his work on the Spiderman movies and Drag Me To Hell but his credits go all the way back to cult classic The Evil Dead. He was also the Producer of a number of 1990's fantasy-adventure series such as Hercules: The Legendary Journeys and Xena: Warrior Princess. Point being: the man knows how to turn a bunch of characters hacking at each other with swords into fun entertainment.

No word on casting yet, but fanboys and girls (myself included) are holding their breath and hoping the name Bruce Campbell gets mentioned soon. Campbell, a cult favorite, has frequently worked with Raimi in the past.
