We’ve been getting a little news here and there on Duncan Jones’ upcoming adaptation of the video game, Warcraft. Little has been revealed about the plot or the characters of the film, until today. Actor, Ben Foster, shed a little light about his character, Medivh, in a recent interview with IGN. Check out what he had to say below.
About his role in the film.
“The character in Warcraft that I play is named Medivh. He’s a mage, which is essentially a sorcerer. He came up in a time protecting an area, and the way he protected this area was through magic. As peace returned to this land he took a break. He hung up his staff, so to speak, or let his guns get dusty. We meet him as his friends are returning asking for his help in a battle.”
“What’s exciting about Duncan Jones’ take on this video game is that it shows both sides of the war. It shows both sides of a conflict, which is exciting to me. It’s not just a video game turned into a movie. It’s asking, hopefully, an important question of, where do we limit our compassion for what we consider to be the bad guys?”
Warcraft will be directed by Duncan Jones and is due out on December 15th, 2015. The film will star: Ben Foster, Toby Kebbell, and Rob Kazinsky
