Back in February, we reported that Warner Bros. had acquired the rights to adapt the ridiculously popular video game Minecraft into a film with Roy Lee (The LEGO Movie) producing alongside Jill Messick (Mean Girls). The open-world game is from Swedish indie developers Mojang AB, and allows players to create a world with textured cubes. Different modes have the players either fighting for survival or they can simply build away without any restraints aside from a lack of rounded corners.
I don’t understand Minecraft at all, which makes me feel super-old, but Warner Bros. thinks Night at the Museum director Shawn Levy might have a good take on the material. Hit the jump for more.
