Peter Sollett (“Raising Victor Vargas,” “Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist”) has been set to write and direct the long-anticipated film adaptation of the popular video game franchise “Minecraft” at Warner Bros. Pictures.

Based on the globally popular video game, the story follows a teenage girl and her unlikely group of adventurers who, after the malevolent Ender Dragon sets out on a path of destruction, must save their beautiful, blocky Overworld.

Mojang, who released the game, will produce with Roy Lee and Jon Berg. Various people have been attached to this adaptation over the years as potential helmers including Shawn Levy and Rob McElhenney.
