If you've ever given over days of your life to a sprawling online computer game involving trolls and orcs, then you're probably looking forward to "Moon" director Duncan Jones's "Warcraft," an adaptation of Blizzard Entertainment's "World of Warcraft" video game. While the leads haven't been locked down (although Colin Ferrell is heavily rumored), four new actors have joined the cast of the epic fantasy adventure.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Ben Foster, who stars in this month's harrowing war film "Lone Survivor"; Robert Kazinsky from HBO's "True Blood"; Dominic Cooper from "Captain America" and this year's sorely underrated revenge movie "Dead Man Down"; and Toby Kebbell, who appears in next year's highly anticipated "Dawn of the Planet of the Apes," have all secured roles in "Warcraft."

The film is being produced by Legendary Pictures, which financed "Pacific Rim" and co-financed Christopher Nolan's Batman trilogy. It's assumed that the film will be released via Legendary's new partnership with Universal.

"Warcraft" starts shooting in January, targeting a March 11, 2016, release.
