World of Warcraft's big screen debut will no longer involve Hollywood movie director Sam Raimi.
The Spider-Man helmer revealed the news while promoting his next film, 'Oz: The Great and Powerful' at Comic Con.
“They don’t have me directing World of Warcraft anymore because when I took the Oz job, they had to move on to another director,” Raimi told Crave Online. “They had to start making it.”
It's the first mention that Raimi had left the project, and that the movie had entered production - Raimi was announced as director by Blizzard and production company Legendary with great fanfare almost exactly three years ago, but little about the project has been shown since.
