Sam Raimi departs the World of Warcraft for the merry old land of Oz

7/18/12 3:45pm

Sam Raimi (the director of the Evil Dead and Spider-Man trilogies) revealed at Comic Con that he is no longer the director of the WoW  movie.

It turns out Legendary Films had to go in a new direction after Raimi had to put his Warcraft story on the backburner so he could dedicate his time to filming his upcoming epic Wizard of Oz prequel, Oz: The Great and Powerful.

Here’s what Raimi himself had to say during a brief chat with CraveOnline:

"Actually, they don't have me directing World of Warcraft [film] any more, because when I took the Oz job, they had to move on to another director. They had to start making it.”

Wait. Does this mean Legendary has been producing the film without a director since 2010?  Jeez. I don't think they could have made too much progress over the past two years without somebody at the helm (especially if they had to re-work the story from the ground up) but at least we know the movie is still a thing.
