Director Duncan Jones plans to roll cameras on January 13, 2014 in Vancouver. Several actors have been rumored to be in talks to join the crew.

There are contradictory rumors about the plot. Bleeding Cool recently mentioned it is based on Khadgar and Medivh during the First War, while the Production Weekly audition postings describes an early Arthas plot.
