Uwe Boll attempts to acquire rights to create a World of Warcraft movie

I have always enjoyed gaming movies, I am one that is extremely easy to please when it comes to them too. I even enjoyed the latest Resident Evil that Scott here at Slashgear will start ranting about if you ever bring it up. Now, that being said, I never ever want to see the likes of Uwe Boll snagging the rights to create a World of Warcraft movie, frankly I think I'd go on a gaming strike. Thankfully Blizzard is smart enough to recognize Uwe Boll's lack of talent and turn him down flat.

If you are unfamiliar with the works of Uwe Boll, some of the gaming atrocities he has created are Postal, House of the Dead and In the Name of the King: A Dungeon Siege Tale. He has been requested by many many gamers to please stop creating these awful movies, however, he has said that no amount of petitions will stop him.

He apparently got in contact with Paul Sams of Blizzard and Paul then stated. “We will not sell the movie rights, not to you...especially not to you. Because it's such a big online game success, maybe a bad movie would destroy that ongoing income, what the company has with it."
