Blizzard is making a movie based on its rather popular Warcraft property. Sam Raimi is directing it, meaning one actor’s involvement is almost assured. So which actor and which role?
The hot topic currently raging at Blizzard’s creatively leaning offices is apparently “What role will Bruce Campbell play?” That’s according to Blizzard VP of creative development Chris Metzer, who thinks that Raimi, director of the Spider-Man and Evil Dead trilogies, is “gonna rock it out.”
“I keep thinking [Campbell]might make a killer Goblin,” Metzger said during today’s Warcraft “Epic Loot” Comic-Con panel. “He’s got a kick arse chin.”
Metzer commented casually that he’d envisioned the actor taking a digital role, perhaps in Gollum style pre-rendered performance.
While Metzer couldn’t say much about the Warcraft flick in an official capacity other than “we’re prepping all engines to rock” and his comments about a Bruce Campbell cameo weren’t confirmation that the actor is signed on, it sure sounds like a good idea.
Actually, do they have boom sticks in Warcraft?
