Legendary and Universal Pictures’ video game adaptation Warcraft has leveled up Daniel Wu and Clancy Brown to its cast in undisclosed roles. California-born actor Wu (New Police Story, The Banquet, Tai Chi Zero) is a star in Hong Kong but has been making moves towards a career stateside with recent pics like Europa Report and RZA’s The Man With The Iron Fists. He’s repped by CAA. Brown is currently in theaters opposite Jason Statham in Homefront and has features When The Game Stands Tall and Trip to Bountiful coming up. The ICM Partners and Pop Art Management client is also a recurring star on Fox’s Sleepy Hollow. The pair join already-cast Ben Foster, Travis Fimmel, Paula Patton, Toby Kebbel, Dominic Cooper and Rob Kazinsky in Warcraft, which is written by Charles Leavitt and written and directed by Duncan Jones (Moon, Source Code), based on the popular Blizzard Entertainment game. Charles Roven, Thomas Tull, Jon Jashni and Alex Gartner are producing. Stuart Fenegan, Jillian Share, Brent O’Connor and Blizzard’s Mike Morhaime and Paul Sams are exec producers. Chris Metzen, Rob Pardo and Nick Carpenter from Blizzard will co-produce.
