Now that World of Warcraft is getting its very own live action movie in 2016, fans are beginning to speculate about more games being turned into movies. The new Warcraft movie will come out in 2016. The movie contains some very famous actors such as Dominic Cooper, Clancy Brown and Ben Foster. Since World of Warcraft is such a huge game, the movie is expected to attract a large audience. This is, however, not the only huge online game. There are other games out there that may one day get their very own live action movie. Games like League of Legends.
League of Legends
League of Legends has about 27 million unique players a day. 27 million..... that is a lot of people. The movie would have to focus on only a part of the game though since the game contains about 125 champions to play with. It will be hard to fit all these 125 unique characters into a movie. Especially all the non-human characters. However, the movie could still happen with only a part of the champions. They are all awesome and some of them have really interesting background stories that could be explored in a potential movie about the world of League of Legends.
The movie would have to have sequels though. With the game constantly getting new champions, the first movie would get outdated soon. I bet the community would not mind multiple movies :)
But.... actors would have to be chosen to represent these champions. The League of Legends community has done its fair share of fancasting and some of these sound really cool!
Keanu Reeves as Yasuo
Keanu Reeves playing Yasuo, everyones favourite assassin, looks great. Keanu's fairly recent movie "47 Ronin" sort of fits the style. Not everyone was as excited with his role in this movie but no one can deny that he is a great actor! He would make for a great Yasuo.
Other ideas about actors that could play Yasuo? Comment!
Angelina Jolie as Caitlyn
We can already see that Caitlyn's famous hat will look great on her! Angelina Jolie was a popular actress among the fancasting of a League of Legends movie. She was chosen for various champions. Most people, however, see Angelina Jolie as the perfect Caitlyn and can you blame them? We know Angelina can be a total badass and she would make for a great Caitlyn.

Scarlett Johansson as Miss Fortune
Wait, am I seeing double? With her red curls, Scarlett Johansson looks very much like Miss Fortune. Even the make-up is very similar. Scarlett Johansson was also very popular and people wanted her for almost every (human) feminine champion in League of Legends. With different hairstyles, she could probably pull off most of them. Scarlett does have much experience with using guns in movies so the role of Miss Fortune should be great for her!
