Warhammer 40k Ultramarines Film

For all warhammer fans out there, Games Workshop have finally announced that a film based in the Warhammer 40k universe is going to be made. Titled "Ultramarines", the film is presumably going to feature the most famous chapter of space marines who fight evil and protect the 40k universe under the ultimate leadership of the Emperor.

Ultramarines is being produced by Codex Pictures (who have previously created the Bionicle trilogy) and will apparently be very CGI rich using state-of-the-art production techniques.

The Director of this film is "Martyn Pick" who's previous credits include "The Age of Stupid" (animation director) and he has been chosen due to his unique style of film making and ability to seamlessly fuse live action and animation.

The Scriptwriter is no other than Dan Abnett, the prolific and talented author of over 25! games workshop novels (published by Black Library) and an Angry Robot recruit with the novel "Triumff" (which we will try and review as soon as we can)

You can find an interview with Dan talking about the film just below, while you can keep updated about progress of the film on the official Ultramarines Movie website.
