“Warcraft” is another ambitious project for Legendary, which also brought Guillermo del Toro's “Pacific Rim” to the big screen. The fantasy film follows orcs, dragons, zombies, werewolves and elves in a medieval-like setting.

Jones (“Source Code”) will direct “Warcraft” from a script by Charles Leavitt. Legendary's Thomas Tull and Jon Jashni are producing with Atlas Entertainment's Charles Roven and Alex Gartner.

Production will start next month in Vancouver, and Universal will release the movie on March 11, 2016.

    How about you do a bit of research on what you are writing about? The movie isnt based on World of Warcraft, its based on the original Warcraft RTS games, which did not have werewolves or zombies or elves. It is more closely related to Lord of the Rings if anything.
    Bunch of hacks.

      this is correct. in fact it is a prequel to the original Warcraft RTS games.
