The World of Warcraft movie is moving along in development, even though it’s been stuck in the story-development phase for a couple years now. By contrast, Blizzard’s hottest property over the summer was definitely StarCraft, and while the developer is open to making a movie out of their sci-fi RTS, they indicate that it would take the right sort of production team to be brought on board.
“We’ve always had an interest in seeing our stuff on film or TV. It’s just tricky to find the right partners, said Rob Pardo, the EVP of Game Design at Blizzard. We probably could have made a [StarCraft] movie or something on TV years and years ago, but it’s really important to us that we find creative people that are really talented but also really excited about our properties. That’s always been the challenge for us. I think if Jim Cameron came to us tomorrow and said, ‘You want to make a StarCraft movie ‘ we’d probably sign that.”
“That’s why we did the WoW movie, Pardo added. We were really excited about being involved with Legendary Pictures, who we thought had a really good track record with these sorts of movies that would make sense for our franchises.”
