While Warcraft has managed to secure the top-grossing video game adaptations list, many analysts believe that Duncan Jones' film never made it to self-sufficiency.

Video game-based films continue to face negative reviews and serious box office problems, and the games industry has been slow to expand its partnership with Hollywood. Bethesda Game Studios is one of those companies that do not risk selling the rights to their hits to film studios. However, it seems that the famous game developer will be ready to change his position on this issue, if the work on the adaptation of his popular franchise The Elder Scrolls is taken by the chief Hollywood specialist on high-budget and large-scale fantasy Peter Jackson b>.
"We are not eager to film our games, - Vice President of Bethesda Pete Hines said in an interview with Australian portal Finder . -But if Peter Jackson appears on the doorstep of our office tomorrow with the words: “I want to make a film based on The Elder Scrolls ”, we will seriously think about the film adaptation of this franchise”.
The The Elder Scrolls series has sold 40 million copies, and its third, fourth and fifth installments were at one time awarded the title of "Game of the Year" from many reputable publications. It is hoped that the rich fantasy world of this franchise will arouse the interest of the director of The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit.
After completing the intense work on the The Hobbit trilogy, Peter decided to take a break from his career. Earlier last month, it became known that the Oscar-winning director had finally interrupted his vacation to join forces with Steven Spielberg on a secret project and sequel to The Adventures of Tintin.
