Uwe Boll has been involved in numerous game to movie adaptations, none of them a success in any measure other than stirring up fans into a frenzy of hatred.   Thus far he his movie-manglings of various franchises has garnered him a 200,000+ signature petition requesting that he exit the movie industry entirely and never return.

So what did Boll do when he heard that the most successful MMO in the world (of Warcraft…) was going to get a big screen adaptation?  We’ll let him tell you:

“I got in contact with Paul Sams of Blizzard, and he said, ‘We will not sell the movie rights, not to you…especially not to you,’” Boll revealed.  “Because it’s such a big online game success, maybe a bad movie would destroy that ongoing income, what the company has with it.”

Good call Blizzard!

Good.  Keep him out of as many movies as possible.  You say the petitions only at 200k?  Dang.

Wow, that's hilarious. Not only that there's a WoW movie in the works, but that they refused Boll.

EPIC FAIL! I hope this WoW movie bombs... how can you make a movie about characters controlled by 13 year old boy that are dancing in their underwear with other 13 year old boys posing as girls who are also dancing in their underwear?
