Blizzard: No WoW for you, Uwe!

Uwe BollWe, as gamers, all know and love the charismatic film director Uwe Boll (ok, maybe by "love" I really mean "can’t friggin’ stand"). The man has an affinity for making videogame-based movies, but somehow they all come out looking, smelling, sounding, and tasting (tasting? sure, why not?) like crap.

He has slain many-a-franchise with deplorable big screen adaptations, and most recently set his sights on the heroin of the videogame industry, World of Warcraft. Could the biggest thing since the microchip be the the next victim of Boll’s evil pen of DOOM?

No. Luckily, Blizzard is familiar with Boll’s past work, and pretty much bitch slapped him when he approached them with the idea. Boll describes the exchange:

I got in contact with Paul Sams of Blizzard, and he said, ‘We will not sell the movie rights, not to you…especially not to you. Because it’s such a big online game success, maybe a bad movie would destroy that ongoing income, what the company has with it."

Thank you, Blizzard. The world can rest easy tonight.
