Activision/Blizzard today announced that legendary director Sam Raimi will assume the captain’s seat for the upcoming film based in the epic and violent Warcraft universe, lending his directing abilities this time towards Orcs and Trolls rather than the Green Goblin and Mary-Jane.

A deal inked with Legendary Pictures and Activision/Blizzard today confirmed the signing and Raimi had this to say:

“At its core, Warcraft is a fantastic, action-packed story, I am thrilled to work with such a dynamite production team to bring this project to the big screen.”

No mention was made concerning any of the plot, leading actors/actresses, or really anything relating to the actual film, but, if Raimi could take the already loved SpiderMan comic and turn it into a global phenomenon for non-geeks as well, just imagine what he’ll do in the Warcraft universe!
