This article is about the non-existent film. For the feature-length documentary, see RuneScape - 15 Years of Adventure.

The possibility of a full-length film based on RuneScape was mentioned by Jagex in a post on the former Q&A section of the RuneScape Official Forums in August 2009.[1] Creation of a RuneScape film was previously teased in a poll in 2007, where Jagex polled actor choices for the roles of the Wise Old Man and the Sandwich lady in RuneScape the Movie.[2] However when asked about a RuneScape film in September 2009 Andrew Gower said it was unlikely that it would be made.[3]

On 10 April 2011, the Financial Times reported that Raine, a new investor at Jagex, was exploring the idea of turning RuneScape into a film made by Hasbro.[4]

During Runefest 2017 Lore Marathon panel it was revealed that some known companies approached Jagex with the idea of making an action film set in the RuneScape universe, the film Thor was named as example. Mod Mark disagreed with that vision as he wanted something more comedic like the The Princess Bride or Stardust. One of the idea was to adapt the storyline of Ritual of the Mahjarrat with a larger cast of characters, including Zanik and the Wise Old Man.

There was also talks with a Chinese movie company that specialize in the making of monster style horror movie. A potential idea included a movie following Cave goblins emerging to the surface for the first time. From the perspective of the goblins, humans would have been seen as monsters.
