No doubt the success of The LEGO Movie played a big part in this, but remember the Minecraft movie was sort of rushed into production (here)?
Well it looks like the square wheels have come of the wagon now.
Variety are reporting that Shawn Levy, director of Real Steel and Night At The Museum has walked and has taken screenwriters Kieran Mulroney and Michelle Mulroney with him as their vision for the movie “Didn’t mesh” with what Mojang – the guys behind the game – envisioned it being.
Warner Bros are still treating it as a priority and are hoping to have a new team in place as early as January.
No word on when the movie will be out but at least they’re still building the foundations. Or something. (That worked better in my head).
