The “Moon” director deserves a long nap
After 123 days in Azeroth, Duncan Jones has officially wrapped on his biggest movie yet.
The 42-year-old English director, who previously made the well-regarded sci-fi indie “Moon” starring Sam Rockwell and the slightly larger thriller “Source Code” with Jake Gyllenhaal, tweeted on Friday that production on “Warcraft” was completed. The adaptation of the massively popular computer game began production on January 20, making the shoot 123 days — or just over four months long.
Little is known about the film, which Jones took over when Sam Raimi bowed out in 2012. The lack of info is ironic, given how much Jones tweets — you can find a selection of his updates below — but prudent and expected given that this is a film being produced and distributed by Legendary. We do know that Ben Foster, Dominic Cooper and Paula Patton will star in the movie, and it is due out from Legendary and Universal on March 11, 2016.
Final day on Warcraft now officially… wrapped!! Off to bed for 3 hours before a meeting in the AM. Goodnight/good morning twitter!
