World of Warcraft movie gets a bunch of casting news


The Warcraft movie is finally trucking along with a director and that means casting choices. First we have two people that are in the last stretch of becoming part of the movie as Colin Farrell and Paula Patton are negotiating for lead roles with Patton in negotiations and Farrell being offered the role. Both of them have legs and can look pretty so that fulfills the requirements I had for starring in a Warcraft film.

There’s also news of four people on the short list that Legendary Pictures/Atlas Entertainment are looking at. Paul Dano, Travis Fimmel, Anson Mount, Anton Yelchin have all been dropped as possible actors. Again, they fulfill the requirements stated of above, with Dano having the added bonus of being awesome. 

Since there’s no really defined characters in Warcraft it’s hard to have dream actors lined up for the roles, but anything here make you more excited for the film? Did anyone have any dream casting for this movie?
