Warner Bros. will bring Minecraft to the big screen
You had to know it was comingóa big screen adaptation of MINECRAFT.
Warner Bros. has acquired the rights to open world game, MINECRAFT. Iím sure youíve heard about it by now. Someone you know plays it whether itís your kid, a workmate, your spouse, etc. I know people who arenít even into conventional gaming that love MINECRAFT. Just in case youíve been living under a very large rock for the past few years, MINECRAFT started as an indie sandbox game from developers Mojang AB where users could build anything that their little hearts desired. Thereís videos online of rather impressive full-scale game versions on the Starship Enterprise, Atlantis, Rome, and the list goes on.
However, thereís not much of a story there but THE LEGO MOVIE proved that a basic detail like that one doesnít matter. In fact, Jill Messick and Roy Lee (THE LEGO MOVIE) will serve as producers on this adaptation. Do they have any idea of where they want to go with the plot? If they do, it wasnít shared when Deadline initially broke the news. However, there's one interesting detail...it's going to be live-action.
I think since it's MINECRAFT kids will love it. The fanbase is there, and if it's a hit it could have franchise potential. Just wondering why they decided to go with live-action instead of computer animated. Will MINECRAFT Steve look like this?
Are you excited for a MINECRAFT movie?
