The Minecraft Movie

Posted by The Pale Emperor , Feb 27 2014 · 549 views

according to Deadline:

Minecraft, one of the hottest video game franchises in the market today, is going to be made into a major motion picture. Warner Bros. just acquired the rights to the wildly popular game from Swedish indie developer Mojang AB (mojang means gadget in Swedish). The property already is getting huge interest from writers and filmmakers as Warners is putting together a live-action version. Roy Lee, who produced the megahit The Lego Movie with Dan Lin and has launched a franchise for Warner Bros, is handling Minecraft for the studio via his Vertigo Entertainment along with Jill Messick (Mean Girls and Mean Moms) who will also produce in some capacity, studio sources said. Jon Berg is the executive in charge at the studio. CAA brokered the deal for the film rights.

honestly this makes even less sense than The Lego Movie did. Minecraft literally has no story. it's a sandbox video game with even more creative limitations than Lego.

...And then proceed to spawn three or four sequels.

I'm still amazed that they made a Battleship movie.

I could see a movie going along the lines of what a lot of Minecraft players do, but... dang. I'm glad Mojang makes a really good product, because this is probably going to be a pretty stupid movie. Maybe they could manage something with the Wither turned up to 11 as a destructive force..
