Sam Raimi has revealed that he will no longer direct Legendary Pictures and Blizzard Entertainment's World of Warcraft movie.

The Spider-Man filmmaker said that he stepped aside from the big-budget video game adaptation when he chose to direct Oz: The Great and the Powerful.

"They don't have me directing World of Warcraft anymore because when I took the Oz job, they had to move on to another director," Crave Online quotes him as saying. "They had to start making it."

Raimi was working on a script for the film with Saving Private Ryan screenwriter Robert Rodat.

Warcraft is the world's biggest MMORPG with more than 10 million subscribers. It takes place in the world of Azeroth and centres around the battles between the Horde and Alliance forces.
