Warner Bros. working on a Minecraft movie

Warner Bros. working on a Minecraft movieAfter registering over 100 million users across a myriad of platforms and regions, Mojang's hit open-world survival title Minecraft is set to become a feature film franchise at major studio Warner Bros.

"Someone is trying leak the fact that we're working with Warner Brothers on a potential Minecraft Movie," Minecraft creator Markus "Notch" Persson tweeted this evening. "I wanted to be the leak!" The developer later confirmed to Polygon that the tweet is not a joke and that the Minecraft film project is indeed in development at Warner Bros.

Film industry site Deadline Hollywood says the film is being planned as a live action adaptation. The site also cites "sources inside the studio" in reporting that the project is being handled by Roy Lee, who served as producer on the recent Lego Movie. That film, also based on a rather blocky and playful source material, went on to become a critical and financial blockbuster, raking in over $280 million worldwide just three weeks after its release.

Earlier this month, a fan-made film based on the world of Minecraft raised over $600,000 on Kickstarter, before being shut down by a request from Mojang.
