Sam Raimi to Direct World of Warcraft Movie

Spider-Man's Sam Raimi has been confirmed as the director for the World of Warcraft movie, with Dark Knight producer Charles Roven and senior VP of creative development at Blizzard, Chris Metzen co-producing. Variety reports that Legendary Pictures and Blizzard Entertainment are mounting the film, with Warner Bros. co-financing and distributing. Raimi will reportedly be working on Warcraft and Spider-Man 4 at the same time.

Who's excited? I'm mildy more interested now than I was before. Not being a World of Warcraft fan, I wasn't all that bothered with the movie when word first got out but now that they've confirmed some serious talent for the direction and production, I'm a little curious.
