Charles Leavitt, of Blood Diamond fame, is said to be the writer, and Duncan Jones has been selected as the director. You may remember him as the director of The Moon and Source Code. He also worked as a designer on the 2003 video game Republic: The Revolution. Jones tweeted about the position, but never actually acknowledged the job was for the WOW movie.

We have no information yet on whether or not the movie will be a live action thriller or will be a mass of CGI special effects and green screen acting. A budget has also not been released, but Blizzard has alluded to a budget of $100 million in the past.
