‘Warcraft’ Casts Ben Foster, Paula Patton and More
Though the film may have blinked when 'Star Wars: Episode 7' took its release date, Duncan Jones' 'Warcraft' has at least one leg up over the new 'Star Wars' film: It actually has a cast. Ben Foster, Paula Patton, Dominic Cooper, Travis Fimmel, Toby Kebbel, and Rob Kazinsky have all signed on for the film.
This news comes from Legendary's Twitter feed and it seems likely that either Ben Foster or Travis Fimmel is stepping into the role that Colin Farrell was previously eyed to play. It also suggests that everyone involved knows that the property is the selling point, not the performers. Paula Patton and Fimmel, who stars on the History Channel's show 'Vikings,' were both previously mentioned to appear in the film. Here are their tweets:
