Blizzard COO Paul Sams told Guardian during an interview with Greg Howson (Guardian.co.uk) that a director has not been decided yet, but two producers are now onboard.
How’s the movie going?
Paul Sams: We’re in the second or third draft at the moment. We’re interviewing directors and have added two of the producers of the Dark Knight as well. They are onboard. I’m so excited about that. The directors we have spoken to have put forward their ideas and we’re making progress. We’re as confident as ever in Legendary Pictures as they did a great job on the Dark Knight. Will we make 2009? Time is tight and things would have to go really right for that to happen. I wouldn’t rule 2009 out but like our games we only want to release when are happy. I don’t think it’s too far away though.
