Legendary is keeping its script, written by Charles Leavitt, under wraps. The Warner Bros.-based production and finance outfit is eyeing a fall 2013 start and a 2015 release.
With an expected release date sometime in 2015, that leaves plenty of time for everyone to return to their parents' basements, speculate which aspects of the Warcraft universe Leavitt and story writer Chris Metzen will include in the film, then commit a few more months to play time. All out of the sun's harsh glare. To be fair to Leavitt, this will be his second foray into fantasy territory, having scripted more serious fare before that. He wrote the screenplay for The Seventh Son, currently in post, a fantasy film about fighting off witches, ghouls and such.
