Farrell spoke highly of the movie's script, describing it as "amazing" and hailing Jones as a "visually gifted" filmmaker.

"I sat with Duncan for a while and read the script, loved the script, and he was as cool as can be," he told IGN. "I don't know what's happening with the film. I don't know where they are in the process.

"The script was just really, really cool, and it's just a world that I never explored - and it's a really big and fantastical world.

"I can't imagine what he, being as visually gifted as he is, Duncan, and what he did on Moon with, like, a dime, I can't imagine what he'd do with this Warcraft."
