Minecraft movie possibly in the works by Warner Bros, will probably be a block-buster

Warner Bros, a movie studio in Burbank California known for countless popular movies since 1923, may be working on a Minecraft-themed movie. Today Notch tweeted, "Someone is trying leak the fact that we're working with Warner Brothers on a potential Minecraft Movie. I wanted to be the leak!" Even though Notch would be joking, it would make sense that a Minecraft movie is in the works.

But a Minecraft movie wouldn't be the first block-buster (heh heh) made by Warner Bros. Currently in theaters is the smash-hit film The Lego Movie (pictured above), which I personally have seen and I love it. A sequel to The Lego Movie is already in production, and maybe a Minecraft movie too. Interestingly, there is already a documentary about Minecraft, titled Minecraft: The Story about Mojang by 2 Player Productions.

Earlier this month Notch killed a fan-made Minecraft movie called The Birth of Man, which was going to be funded through Kickstarter and released for free in the later half of 2014. When Notch told the creator Brandon Laatsch to cancel the movie, he said "We don't allow half a million kickstarters based on our ip without any deals in place." It could be possible that Warner Bros asked him to cancel the fan movie because of a future official Minecraft movie, or it could be both Mojang and Warner pushing back. And it looks like CaptainSparklez might be voicing a dirt block (kidding).

It would make sense. Steve builds a house finds treasure tames pet. House blows up HeroBrine comes and then Steve will come in a epic Show Down.

Well the movie could have some action with hostile and epic fights vs the wither and the enderdragon, and then a final show down of Steve vs Herobrine

That's a good one at the end about CaptainSparkles voicing a dirt block! LOL XD Because in the 3 episode of his Ultra Modded Survival series his crafting table, and half his bed got turned into dirt. Not to forget that his chest with stuff in it vanished. Good on Corbin.

I wonder who would voice who!

Who do you guys think should voice the characters, i.e Steve and Herobrine? Just curious what everyone thinks :)

This would be so cool to see though, although I know many of us are worried the game's popularity might be affected by it.

a minecraft movie would be considered "nerdy" by some, but it would probably be pretty funny.

I've seen talk about this, and I have thought before about the idea, but if any of you watch Element Animation (youtube channel) they have been making "an egg's guide to minecraft" which is a lot like a movie in episodes... and I have seen a lot of stuff on youtube before that have really good animation, but voices can be a problem. It's not impossible.

I have to agree with that. A minecraft movie may ruin all the fun off the game or just make it less popular.

[…] first heard about a potential Minecraft movie in February 2014, when Notch said Mojang was working with Warner Bros. Then we heard almost nothing until December, when the director and several writers left the […]
