Sam Raimi to direct Warcraft movie

Sam Raimi, director of the Evil Dead series, Spider-Man series, and most recently Drag Me To Hell, has signed on to helm a live-action adaptation of Activision Blizzard's Warcraft videogame franchise. "The Dark Knight" producer Charles Roven is also onboard. Raimi will start shooting Warcraft after he finishes Spider-Man 4, which will likely be late 2010 or early 2011. 

Under a deal inked in 2006, Legendary Pictures will produce the title, with input from Activision Blizzard. Warner Bros. has signed on to co-finance and distribute the film. Legendary Pictures and Blizzard have been working together since 2007 on pre-production. Though it will take place in Azeroth, old rumors indicate that the story will be original, and peg the budget at $100+ million.
