Ben Foster, Toby Kebbell & Dominic Cooper Cast in 'Warcraft' Movie
Big casting announcement for the Warcraft movie tonight. Variety is reporting that four more names are set for Duncan Jones' Warcraft movie in the works at Legendary. The big four are: Ben Foster (of 3:10 to Yuma, Pandorum, Rampart, Ain't Them Bodies Saints, Lone Survivor), Toby Kebbell (of RocknRolla, Prince of Persia, Sorcerer's Apprentice, Wrath of the Titans, The East), Rob Kazinsky (of "True Blood", Red Tails + Chuck Hansen in Pacific Rim) in three lead roles, with Dominic Cooper (Mamma Mia, Devil's Double, Captain America, Need for Speed) in negotiations for a part as well. All four of these guys are very talented actors on the rise and should make for a gritty, badass cast of humans. So who will they be playing?
No one knows! Plot details for this Warcraft movie are still being kept a big secret, and we don't have have any casting or character breakdowns to go along with them. In addition to Foster, Kebbell, Kazinsky and Cooper, Warcraft will also star Travis Fimmel and Paula Patton - they were announced previously. The rest of the cast is being solidified at this moment, as Duncan Jones (Moon, Source Code) is gearing up to start shooting soon in order to make their scheduled March 11, 2016 release date (nearly three years from now). My feeling is this might be filmed a bit like Avatar or John Carter, with lots of technical rigs and a whole year of post-production and heavy CGI to complete the world. We'll continue to keep an eye out for more casting updates. Congrats to Foster, Kebbell, Kazinsky and Cooper - that is one hell of a line-up so far.
Other rumored names being considered for Warcraft roles included: Colin Farrell, Paul Dano, Anson Mount and Anton Yelchin. We're not sure if they're possibly still in the mix or out entirely. Stay tuned for updates.
