Thomas Tull about Warcraft release date
Crew from CraveOnline had a chat with Legendary Pictures CEO Thomas Tull about various projects they are working on at this moment and few questions were about Warcraft movie also.
CraveOnline: I understand Warcraft wraps shooting shortly but doesn’t come out until 2016. Is two years of post longer than usual?
Thomas Tull: Well, part of it is getting the date right. As you may have noticed, these next two years, there’s pretty big titles coming out. We wanted to make sure that we got that right, but there are some sequences and some things that Duncan Jones has done that are truly on the cutting edge. You want to have plenty of time to make sure that we dial those in. So by the time they get home and set up, it’ll be a little less than two years. It’ll be about 20 months but we really want to take our time and get this right because the technology that’s employed really is some next generation stuff.
CraveOnline: So they’ll use the time.
Thomas Tull: Correct, absolutely.
CraveOnline: Duncan’s last two movies were mind-benders. Is Warcraft more of a straightforward story for him or does it have that element too?
Thomas Tull: I would say it’s a linear story, but at the same time, it’s Duncan Jones. That’s what we wanted, was again that different flare, not just straightforward fantasy and everything. Look, it’s a privilege. Being able to go from Interstellar’s our fifth movie with Chris Nolan into Guillermo del Toro and Gareth Edwards and now Duncan Jones. It’s really a privilege to work around these folks.
