UPDATED: Ultramarines – Warhammer 40000 film heading our way

UPDATE: Now there is a director attached – more here.
Games Workshop fans rejoice. Ultramarines are heading our way.
The moment fans have been waiting for is finally here… for the first time, the Warhammer 40,000 universe will be realised in a feature-length movie on DVD.
Ultramarines is a 70-minute sci-fi thriller that will use CGI and state-of-the-art animation production techniques. Games Workshop is delighted to be working with UK-based production company Codex Pictures, who have the momentous task of bringing the Warhammer 40,000 universe to the screen.
UPDATE: Fans of the franchise may recall Games Workshop’s similar attempt in the film field several years ago with Bloodquest, a fully animated feature film starring the Blood Angels Chapter. Unfortunately, Bloodquest was “put on hold” and the production company disbanded before work was ever resumed on the project.
Check out the official site. The video clip below is nothing to do with this film as far as I am aware.
