Blizzard Signs On Life Of Pi Visual Arts Supervisor For Warcraft Movie

World of WarcraftWe’ve been hearing news of Blizzard’s Warcraft movie for quite a while now, although so far it does not seem to be making any progress, especially with director Sam Raimi pulling out of the project alleging mismanagement on Blizzard’s part. However according to Blizzard’s Nick Carpenter, it looks like the movie might finally be progressing as he has announced that Bill Westenhofer has signed on to be the visual effects director for the movie.

For those unfamiliar with that name, Bill Westenhofer is an visual effects supervisor at Rhythm and Hues Studios which was in charge of movies such as Life of Pie in which they won an Academy Award for, The Golden Compass, The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, Men in Black 2, Stuart Little and etc. If you enjoyed the visuals of those movies, which I personally did, then it looks likt the upcoming Warcraft movie could be a feast for the eyes! Still no word on when the Warcraft movie could be released, but it’s good to know that some progress is being made.
