Dominic Cooper, Ben Foster, Rob Kazinsky and Toby Kebbell cast in Warcraft

Warcraft may have had its release date pushed back to 2016 to avoid going up against Disney’s Star Wars: Episode VII, but the video game adaptation looks to be picking up the pace in terms of casting, with Universal revealing that Ben Foster (Lone Survivor), Rob Kazinsky (True Blood) and Toby Kebbell (Wrath of the Titans) have signed on for as-yet-unrevealed roles, while Dominic Cooper (Captain America: The First Avenger) is in final negotiations.

The four actors join the previously announced Travis Fimmel (Vikings) and Paula Patton (Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol) in the cast of Warcraft, which is being directed by Duncan Jones (Moon, Source Code). Other actors who have been linked to parts in the fantasy epic include Colin Farrell (Total Recall), Anton Yelchin (Star Trek Into Darkness), Paul Dano (Prisoners) and Anson Mount (Straw Dogs).

Warcraft is set for release on March 11th 2016.
