Colin Farrell is rumored to be up for the lead role in Duncan Jones' highly anticipated fantasy epic Warcraft, based on Blizzard's Warcraft. During an interview with IGN, Farrell was asked about the project, and its current status. In his reply he says that he's read the script, and that it's amazing!
"Don’t know what’s happening, man. I read the script, if that’s any use to you, and it’s amazing....Duncan was cool. I sat with Duncan for awhile and read the script, loved the script, and we was as cool as can be. I don’t know what’s happening with the film. I don’t know where they are in the process...It’s just a world that I never explored — and it’s a really big and fantastical world. I can’t imagine what he, being as visually gifted as he is, Duncan, and what he did on Moon with, like, a dime, I can’t imagine what he’d do with this Warcraft."
Sounds like a movie that is worth looking forward to! Farrell is then asked about what character he might be playing, and this is what he said,
"Can I? I probably shouldn’t. I don’t even know, actually, I’ll just say that! I don’t even know. We were just talking, and Duncan just said, 'There might be something in it for you!' And I said, 'Catering?' [Laughs]"
It was previously revealed that the story of the film will center on Anduin Lothar versus Durotan, the Human and Orc heroes from the original real-time strategy games. The movie will also be focused largely in the Eastern Kingdoms of Azeroth.
Paula Patton and Travis Fimmel (Vikings) are also rumored to be in negotiations to star in the film.
