Like many a major media property, Minecraft is set to get its own movie. There have been plans for a Minecraft movie since 2014 — in fact, it was originally set to release next month — but now it seems some progress has been made with Mojang partnering with Warner Bros and a director attached to the project. That director is Peter Sollett, who has directed a variety of film and TV shows and is most known for 2008’s Nick & Norah’s Infinite Playlist.
Aside from the director, it was revealed by Mojang that it will be a live-action film. Not only that, but they revealed a basic — they don’t want to spoil everything, after all — storyline for the film:
We’ll tell you the story of a teenage girl and her unlikely group of adventurers. After the malevolent Ender Dragon sets out on a path of destruction, they must save their beautiful, blocky Overworld.Now, given the infamous track record of video game film adaptations, you might want to avoid buying tickets right away. But who knows, I was personally extremely sceptical about what seemed like the equally nonsensical idea The Lego Movie, and that turned out to be pretty great. Whatever the case is, we should find out on March 4, 2022, and of course, we’ll bring you other details when we know more.
