In development for years, it looks like Legendary Pictures are nearly ready to release the adaptation to the biggest PC video game series of this generation.

BlizzCon opened this year with a panel introducing the film's director Duncan Jones (Source Code), plot, and cast. The story portrays the origins of the human and orc conflict in Azeroth with emphasis on the view points of the Alliance and the Horde.
