The Duncan Jones helmed Warcraft has added three more names to its cast, with a fourth in negotiations, according to Variety.
Actors Ben Foster (Lone Survivor, The Mechanic), Toby Kebbell (Wrath of the Titans, War Horse), and Rob Kazinsky (Pacific Rim, True Blood) are reportedly confirmed, and Dominic Cooper (Captain America: The First Avenger, Need for Speed) is currently in negotiations. The three, possibly four, join the previously announced Travis Fimmel (Vikings,The Beast) and Paula Patton (2 Guns, Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol).
Loosely based on the Warcraft games, the film’s plot (written by Duncan Jones and Charles Leavitt) is still mostly unknown. Jones recently stated that the film would focus on the initial meeting between humans and orcs, and that it would follow the lead of the games by casting both factions in a similar light with neither side being the “good” or “bad” guys.
Warcraft was originally scheduled for release on December 18, 2015, but the studio wisely chose to push that date back to avoid going head to head with Star Wars: Episode VII. Warcraft will now hit theaters on March 11, 2016. The delay won’t affect filming though, which is set to begin in January. Expect more casting news in the weeks to come.
