Blizzard: We'd Probably Agree to Do a StarCraft Movie if James Cameron Was Involved

I've always thought that a StarCraft movie would be awesome if it was done right, and it seems I'm not alone in my opinion. StarCraft publisher Blizzard has said they'd love to make the movie, as long as the creative minds behind the flick are the perfect fit.

Speaking about the World of Warcraft movie, and the possibility of bringing other franchises to the big screen, Rob Pardo, the EVP of Game Design at Blizzard, told MTV that his company has always wanted to go down the cinema or TV route with its franchises, but finding the right production team for the job is a must for such a project.

"We've always had an interest in seeing our stuff on film or TV. It's just tricky to find the right partners," said Pardo. "We probably could have made a ['StarCraft'] movie or something on TV years and years ago, but it's really important to us that we find creative people that are really talented but also really excited about our properties. That's always been the challenge for us."

"I think if Jim Cameron came to us tomorrow and said, 'You want to make a 'StarCraft' movie?' we'd probably sign that."

Though many dislike him, you can't argue that James Cameron isn't passionate about the projects he takes on, and having that much passion behind a StarCraft movie would be every fan's dream come true.

Do you think James Cameron would do a good job if he were to work on a StarCraft movie? Let us know in the comments below!

    As long as blizzard was deeply involved in the production i really don't think they could go wrong with just about anyone directing.

    say what you will about avatar but the special effects and all were pretty epic. I think If he made star craft it would truly put new meaning to the word epic. just as long as its not more blue smurfs having sex =)
