Blizzard has remained tight-lipped over rumours that a Diablo film is in development, telling Eurogamer it had "no comment to make on this".

Yesterday a listing for the project appeared under the "in development" section on the Legendary Pictures website - the same studio responsible for recent Spartan romp 300. However, today all traces of the film have mysteriously disappeared. No reasons for its removal have been given.

Legendary Pictures has been linked with Diablo in the past, and has already revealed it will creating a film based on Blizzard's entire Warcraft franchise - not just the popular online version as suggested by the listing on the movie-maker's website.

However, little else about either project is known. Lets hope Boll doesn't get his hands on it. Or me.
