Spider-Man director Sam Raimi told MTV that the movie Warcraft (based on the popular video game World of Warcraft) will be penned by Saving Private Ryan scribe, Robert Rodat. Raimi said they will adapt the game, rather than use a previously conceived story.

“We want to be really faithful to the game,” Raimi said. “We would have our writer, Robert Rodat, really craft an original story within that world that feels like a ‘World of WarCraft’ adventure.

Rodat’s other screenplay credits include The Patriot

The Sam Raimi directed Warcraft is due out in 2011
