Warcraft star promises gamers treat

Ben Schnetzer has promised the new Warcraft movie will appeal to hardcore gamers and non-gamers alike.

The 24-year-old actor - who stars as a gay rights activist in new British comedy Pride - stars with Paula Patton, Ben Foster and Dominic Cooper in the upcoming movie version of the popular computer game World Of Warcraft, directed by Duncan Jones.

Ben said: "There is [pressure] but following Duncan into it, I don't think anyone's going to be disappointed. Gamers and non-gamers, the story is accessible to people who have never played the game before, but I think the hardcore gamers are really going to appreciate the tribute Duncan has paid to it."

Ben heaped praise on Duncan - the son of David Bowie formerly known as Zowie Bowie, and director of critically acclaimed films Moon and Sourcecode.

He raved: "Duncan is a genius, and he's the kindest most amazing person. I'd follow him into battle, he's amazing, and I'm very, very excited about it. I'm kind of under lock and key about what I can say about it but it's going to be great."

The film is not due for release until 2016.
