Highly anticipated movie Warcraft recently has begun selected roles. Legendary Pictures and Atlas Entertainment have reportedly made offers to Colin Farrell and Paula Patton to star in their Duncan Jones-directed adaptation of the Blizzard video game Warcraft.
Warcraft, the big screen adaptation of the Blizzard Entertainment’s videogame franchise, will begin shooting early next year, and it looks like Legendary Pictures and Atlas Entertainment have set their sights on Colin Farrell and Paula Patton to headline the movie.
According to Deadline, an offer has gone out to Farrell, but sources say there’s only a 50/50 chance he’ll take the movie. If the screenplay is indeed based on Jeff Grubb’s novel Warcraft: The Last Guardian, then the role Farrell has been offered is that of Khadgar, an apprentice to a powerful mage named Medivh.
Farrell’s recent movies have been under-performing at the box office so he’s in desperate need of a hit. Is Warcraft that movie? It doesn’t sound like Farrell is exactly jumping at the opportunity.
It is unknown what role Patton is in talks for, but her character is either that of a human or an elf. Besides those two, Paul Dano, Travis Fimmel, Anson Mount, and Anton Yelchin are also being eyed for roles in the movie.
Production is set for January 13th next year in Vancouver with Duncan Jones directing from Charles Leavitt’s script. If there are no delays, we may see the film hit theaters sometime in 2015.For more information about game you can visit the official site.

Square Enix has announced that they will launch a console version of Diablo III in Japan. The Japanese version will be sold on PlayStation 3 platform in 2014 and the price has not been decided. At that time, Square Enix will collaborate with Sony Computer Entertainment to make Japanese text and voice.
While Square Enix is best known for their RPGs, they also have a second label called Extreme Edges that localizes Western games for Japan. Most of the Extreme Edges games are Activision titles like Call of Duty or Eidos games. Add Diablo III to that list because Square Enix announced they will publish the console version in Japan.
Diablo III is localized and sold on the PC in a number of other Asian markets, but the game has not been available in Japanese. The Extreme Edge division of Square Enix has published other Western games, and will be providing a full localization effort for Diablo III.
This Japanese localization is scheduled to be released only on the PlayStation 3 console. The Xbox 360 console has not sold well in Japan, so it may not be worth it to bring a localized version to that console.
According to the official Diablo III Console FAQ, the console version of Diablo III will eventually be available in South Korea, Taiwan, Hong Kong, and Southeast Asia.
