A Minecraft Movie is Coming to a Theater Near You

Posted by Travis Goss Friday, February 28, 2014
Looks as though we have another video game-to-film adaptation coming our way in the near future. The megahit open-world sandbox game Minecraft has been greenlit to become a motion picture distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures. The film company had recently acquired the rights to distribute a movie version of the wildly popular video game.

Minecraft has over 100M users and has been downloaded to 14.3M PCs

Hot on the heels of the major success of The LEGO Movie, the Minecraft live-action movie is set to be produced by Roy Lee, who produced The LEGO Movie, and Dan Lin.

Minecraft is available for PC, Xbox 360, PS3, Xbox One and PS4

While this is all really exciting news for fans of Minecraft, it does bring up a question I'm sure you, the reader, are pondering. We have seen popular video game franchises turned into movies before; does Minecraft have what it takes to become a successful film? We have come a long way since Super Mario Bros. and Double Dragon, which were both stinkers at the box office. Since The LEGO Movie was an instant success, time could only tell if Warner Bros. might have a huge hit on their hands.

Now, I want to hear from you all. What do you think of Minecraft being turned into a motion picture feature presentation? Would you pay to see this film? Let us know in the comments section down below.
