I know what you are thinking right now “but Cody there is plenty of fan fiction I can watch on YouTube!” Well despite what most may think about my thoughts on reading I actually dislike reading and the less reading I have to do the happier I am, so reading fan fiction on YouTube doesn’t really do it for me. However Blizzard has actually been looking into bringing StarCraft to the big screen for a while now except Blizzard only wants to do it if the right person will direct it.
“We’ve always had an interest in seeing our stuff on film or TV. It’s just tricky to find the right partners,” Blizzard’s Rob Pardo told MTV Multiplayer. “We probably could have made a [StarCraft] movie or something on TV years and years ago, but it’s really important to us that we find creative people that are really talented but also really excited about our properties. That’s always been the challenge for us. I think if Jim Cameron came to us tomorrow and said, ‘You want to make a StarCraftmovie?’ we’d probably sign that.”
Okay so Blizzard wants James Cameron to direct their movie, I suppose they liked his work in Titanic and I suppose I would have to agree with that. Of course then there is the issue with that little budget movie Cameron made about those blue people and it was shot in 3D with work like that I’d likely tell him no..
Of course I wouldn’t expect to see a StarCraft movie anytime soon considering the World of Warcraft movie has been in limbo for quite a while now.
