Mojang and Warner Bros. are in talks to potentially produce a movie based on Minecraft, creator Marekus “Notch” Persson revealed on Twitter yesterday.

Although he emphasised that the movie is still only a tentative possibility, Notch said he broke the news because the deal had leaked.

It looks like the leak he’s referring to is a Deadline report stating that Warner Bros. has indeed acquired the rights to make a Minecraft movie – although this has not been confirmed.

According to the site’s sources, Lego Movie producer Roy Lee is on board.

Nah, they should split it into two movies so they can milk that cash cow hard!

 

Agreed, Notch should milk Minecraft for as much as he can get from every marketing corner – it’s the trip of a lifetime.

 

Live action movie of people walking around punching trees?

Sounds amazing!
