Warner Bros. will bring Minecraft to the big screen

02.27.2014

You had to know it was coming—a big screen adaptation of MINECRAFT.

Warner Bros. has acquired the rights to open world game, MINECRAFT. I’m sure you’ve heard about it by now. Someone you know plays it whether it’s your kid, a workmate, your spouse, etc. I know people who aren’t even into conventional gaming that love MINECRAFT. Just in case you’ve 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. There’s videos online of rather impressive full-scale game versions on the Starship Enterprise, Atlantis, Rome, and the list goes on.

However, there’s not much of a story there but THE LEGO MOVIE proved that a basic detail like that one doesn’t 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 wasn’t 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?

Fucking kill me......

Thank god for television, where at least advertisers can say "go fuck off" if they don't want to invest their money on advertising a shit show.

The Lego Movie surprisingly has more story than many would perhaps like to admit. [link]
While as a grown adult I don't understand Minecraft at all, and I can't see how a film about Minecraft could be done much less as a live action film, I know there are many kids who would absolutely love it.

I honestly see more potential in that Temple Run movie.

With the same producers as the brilliant "The Lego Movie", I am definitely not as scared as I'd be otherwise. However, making it live-action is an odd touch. While I don't play Minecraft, I have several friends that do, and from seeing them play, I can imagine in a similar vein as "The Lego Movie"- impressive graphics that keep the look of the product accurate, movements that are like the proper thing but a bit more polished as to translate to this medium, etc., I don't see how a live action

But since I don't play it, I could be missing something.
