You always like to think that the director working on a film adaptation of your favorite video game
is actually a fan of the game
. Some claim to be, but World of Warcraft
director Sam Raimi appears to be the genuine article. Speaking with Collider
, Raimi revealed that he's currently rocking a level 72 character in WoW
, this after someone wiped his level 29 shaman "by accident."
Raimi also talked about his WoW
film due in 2013, of course, confirming that it won't be a Tron
-like affair with segments set in the real world and the gameworld -- "It will all be taking place in the world of Warcraft," he said. Also offered: his list of likes about the franchise from a director's perspective, including its scale and locations, calling the world "incredibly, engrossingly terrifying."
