We’ve been hearing about the Warcraft film for years, but the peons seem to have sprung to work recently and Dominic Cooper had a bit to say regarding this project to recently.
While I still have my doubts regarding this project, the involvement of a duo from Blizzard is quite a good sign and with something that is bound to unleash as much rage-fury as gamers’ beloved Warcraft, the studio will undoubtedly tread lightly with regards to production and plot. However, we are still in the dark as to what we can expect but as mentioned earlier, Warcraft star Dominic Cooper had a bit to say regarding the film:
There’s a very human story at the heart of it,” …”because there’s a few of us that are humans in it that are up against tribes and problematic issues that exist in the world that we exist in. It’s happening all over the world at the moment and you see it happening all over. People have savaged their own lands and their own environment and they’re having to find a new environment in which to move into through the hostility of others. If there’s something as poignant as that that we can relate to and that we see unfolding in everyday life, then it will make it a worthwhile story.”
I’m usually not fond of plot elements that have been added to a script purely to appeal to a wider audience or to reflect real world issues and while this might be the case, it does seem like Dominic Cooper is most being a bit more literal with regards to the fact that the humans in the film that will undoubtedly come to face with savage tribes of orcs…quite obviously. Good going, Mr. Cooper! You manage to have quite a lot to say without giving away anything actually substantial!
I’ve been a fan of Dominic Cooper since his portrayal of Uday Hussein in the brutal The Devil’s Double and I’d quite like to see him take on a villian role for Warcraft, but for now we’ll just have to wait and see.
Warcraft also stars Ben Foster, Travis Fimmel, Paula Patton, Toby Kebbell,and Rob Kazinsky. So tell me…what are your thoughts on seeing Azeroth on the big screen for the first time? As long as we get to see Jaina Proudmoore, I’m happy.
