Minecraft movie in development at Warner Bros.


A movie based on hit block-building game Minecraft is actually happening.

"It's for real," Minecraft creator Markus "Notch" Persson told Polygon after mentioning the film on Twitter.

Warner Bros. is developing the movie, which will hopefully appease fans who couldn't make one happen through crowdfunding site Kickstarter last month.

Roy Lee, who produced The Lego Movie, will oversee production on the Minecraft film via his company Vertigo Entertainment, according to Deadline.

Just this week, the PC version of Minecraft surpassed 100 million registered users.
