Sam Raimi on "World of Warcraft" Writer and Story

Posted: October 13th, 2009 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Sam Raimi on "World of Warcraft" Writer and StorySubmit Comment
Speaking to MTV News, director Sam Raimi revealed that he has hired Robert Rodat to write the script for big screen adaptation of the "World of Warcraft" video game. Rodat is known for such films as "Saving Private Ryan" and "The Patriot."

"We want to be really faithful to the game," Raimi said. "We would have our writer, Robert Rodat, really craft an original story within that world that feels like a 'World of Warcraft' adventure. We would choose something that encompasses lands and characters and storylines, and we would be true to it. But our story may or may not be about one of those central characters."

"He continued: [The goal is to capture] the Horde and the Alliance and the mythology that takes place in the game, and the archetypes that the game presents. I think we would try and find touchstones within the game to make it accurate and true and choose one or some of the lands that are portrayed in the game with as much accuracy and authenticity as possible."

Wow! I guess after turning Peter Parker into a bitch-slapped, EMO, priss... Raimi is really coming out for a change and caring for a project.

Wanna stay true to the world? Just make sure you have a cursor going around screen clicking on all your actions. Oh, and for the audio, make it some anti-social nerd with a nasal deficiency heavily breathing into a mic.
