‘Warcraft’ Cast Confirmed, But Where’s Colin Farrell?
Duncan Jones’ Warcraft stepped away from its original December 2015 release date to avoid the box-office juggernaut known as Star Wars: Episode VII, and yet, it’s the video game adaptation that already has a cast in place.
Legendary Pictures and Universal Pictures have signed off on several leads for their upcoming film adaptation of Blizzard Entertainment’s World of Warcraft video games. Travis Fimmel of Vikings and Paula Patton of Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol are now officially on board after having their names connected with the project for several weeks. New to the mix and also confirmed are Ben Foster (Lone Survivor), Toby Kebbell (Dawn of the Planet of the Apes) and Rob Kazinsky (Pacific Rim).
Dominic Cooper, best known around these parts for playing young Howard Stark in the Captain America movies, is said to be in the final stages of negotiation for a part, but the deal is not closed, unlike the aforementioned actors.
Curiously missing from the lineup is Colin Farrell, who was said to be up for a lead role. Perhaps one of these other actors has taken the role that Farrell was originally being considered for, or perhaps there’s more casting news on the way.
