Producer Roy Lee has confirmed that Warner Bros. Pictures’ film adaptation of the widely loved building game “Minecraft” is still on target to shoot this year.
Speaking with Collider, Lee has offered up some more details about the movie, saying that game creator Mojang is “very involved in the development” of the project:
“They know everything is going to be in the movie that can give us insight into future updates so we can put things into the movie around the same time they relaunch newer versions of the game and at the same time, potentially taking ideas from the movie and putting them into the game”.
Rob McElhnney (“It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia”) is penning and direcing the film which is aiming to attract the same audience who turned up for “Jurassic World”. Asked about how the project will work on film, Lee says: “Minecraft would be part of a multiverse where humans can enter that has the feel of what the live action version of a Minecraft experience”.
