Establishing its own little space amidst the gathering swirl of E3 madness is news that a movie based on Blizzard's Warcraft fantasy universe has got the green light.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Blizzard is teaming up with Legendary Pictures to deliver the film, which will be a live-action affair. It sounds as though the movie will feature a unique storyline, rather than a plot ripped from one of Blizzard's Warcraft games.

Speaking about Blizzard's partnering with Legendary on the Warcraft film, the developer's COO Paul Sams said that, "With Legendary, we found a company that specializes in building a small number of big movies. It's very similar to what we do. Blizzard only makes a small number of games; we focus on making big, meaningful games. It's a very similar mentality."

"[Legendary] didn't say, 'We want to make a great Warcaft movie.' It was, 'We want to make a great movie in the Warcraft universe.' That was really important to us", Sams added.

No kind of release date for the Warcraft movie has been mentioned, but it has been said that Blizzard and Legendary are to work hard to ensure that it's one film adaptation of a videogame property that doesn't stink.
