Excitingly, it seems that Azeroth really will be treated to its very own Viking, with Travis Fimmel confirmed for a part.

Joining him will be Paula Patton (Mission Impossible), Ben Foster, Toby Kebbell and Pacific Rim‘s Rob Kazinsky, who took to Twitter to express his delight.

As a career WoW player, 463 days /played, it’s pretty much my ultimate job. proud to be a part of something that is such a major part of me.

We’re still hearing rumours that Dominic Cooper is in negotiations for a part in the upcoming adaptation, to be directed by Source Code‘s Duncan Jones.

…and while the film has been spoken about for so long we’d started to doubt it would ever happen, Legendary has confirmed that production will start in Vancouver next month – January 2014. The film is set for release March, 2016.
