Clancy Brown is already known to sci-fi and fantasy fans as the bloodthirsty Kurgan from the first Highlander film, but has also provided his services to the gaming world many times before with a long list of voiceover credits, including Hades from Sony’s God of War III.
Though Daniel Wu may not be an overly familiar name for Western audiences, he is one of the leading actors in the world of Chinese cinema and an award-winning director of films such as The Heavenly Kings. He has also starred in several English-language films, including 2013’s Europa.
No information on what roles Wu and Brown have been slated to play has been released to the public as of yet.
Directed by Duncan Jones, production on Warcraft will begin in early 2014, with an anticipated release date of March 11, 2016.
