Filming on World of Warcraft movie planned for 2014

The World of Warcraft movie will begin filming in early 2014, the film's producer told Slashfilm last week. The motion picture adaptation of Blizzard's MMORPG was first announced in 2006.

It has shifted talent multiple times since its early reveal; an extended silence ended in January when Legendary Pictures announced Duncan Jones, director of Moon and Source Code, will direct the film.

Filming was originally hoped to begin in 2013 in time for a 2015 release. Even if that timetable slips, this is easily the closest the long-delayed film project has come to reality.

Hopefully World of Warcraft doesn't lose too many more millions of subscribers by the time it hits theaters.
