 Minecraft  movie in the works with Warner Bros.
Minecraft movie in the works with Warner Bros.
February 27, 2014 | By Christian Nutt




Mojang is in talks with major film studio Warner Bros. regarding a Minecraft movie, founder Markus "Notch" Persson has revealed.

His tweet, embedded below, was an effort to beat a leak to the punch in announcing the news. That "leak" is likely this story on the project, from film industry website Deadline.

Notably, Warner Bros. recently had a commercial and critical hit in the form of The Lego Movie; Lego has obvious similarities to the blocky, building-oriented and voxel-based Minecraft. Deadline reports that The Lego Movie producer Roy Lee is working on the Minecraft project.

It is worth noting that development deals in Hollywood don't necessarily result in finished films, with projects taking years to come to fruition if at all. Persson offered no further details on the status of the potential Minecraft project.

The PC version of Minecraft recently hit 100 million users and over 14 million sales.
