Rob Pardo told MTV that Blizzard Entertainment has always wanted to bring its franchises to the silver screen, but they first need to find the right production team.

Rob Pardo thinks a Starcraft film could be possible with someone like James Cameron leading the project. He is currently involved in the sequel to the box office success Avatar. Check it out at MTV.

Blizzard Quote:
“We’ve always had an interest in seeing our stuff on film or TV. It’s just tricky to find the right partners. We probably could have made a [‘StarCraft’] movie or something on TV years and years ago, but it’s really important to us that we find creative people that are really talented but also really excited about our properties. That’s always been the challenge for us. I think if Jim Cameron came to us tomorrow and said, ‘You want to make a ‘StarCraft’ movie?’ we’d probably sign that.”
