Minecraft rose to popularity after its release in 2011. Players explore a world made of blocks, building their own creations with friends. How that will translate to a live-action film is unknown, but it’s definitely an intriguing idea.

Jason Momoa to bring Minecraft to live action

Napoleon Dynamite creator Jared Hess is set to direct the project, while Minecraft studio Mojang’s Lydia Winters and Vu Bai will assist with producing. It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia creator Rob McElhenney and Shawn Levy are also attached to direct.

After the success of films like Sonic the Hedgehog, studios will be keen to find their own successful video-game movie adaptations. There’s a Super Mario movie on the way, and now Minecraft.

Meanwhile, Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom is set for a March 2023 release date. So those hoping to see Momoa back on the big screen have a little bit longer to wait.
