Well, in fairness, it was only a matter of time, given how awesome (ahem) the LEGO movie is doing… but this one still has us baffled.
Warner Brothers have acquired the rights to Minecraft and are planning a movie. A live-action movie. Huh?
The game, released by Swedish games company Mojang, came out in 2011 and has over 100 million users, so there’s no question of an audience being built in.
According to Darkhorizons: “Creator Markus Persson confirmed the news of the film adaptation which Roy Lee (“The Lego Movie”) and Jill Messick (“Mean Girls”) will produce. No writer or director is presently attached.”
OK, we’re confused about how this one will work, but we’ll go with it. More as we get it, folks…
