The World of Warcraft movie simply titled Warcraft has found one of its four leading actors. Travis Fimmel, the current star of History Channel’s smash-hit Vikings will slice and dice his way onto the big screen adaptation.
Variety has reported after an “lengthy search,” Legendary Entertainment has picked Fimmel; all that awaits is a formal offer.
Duncan Jones (Source Code) will direct the Worldcraft feature from a script by Charles Leavitt. Paula Patton (Mission Impossible: Gost Protocol) is currently talks to co-star, while Colin Farell also has an offer but his deal is not as far along.
Warcraft is slated for production in early 2014 and will be set for a holiday release of December 18th, 2015.
