Just a second, did we just mention there’s going to be a Minecraft movie?
Looks like we did. We understand your excitement as a Minecraft enthusiast, and we welcome you to our fascinating topic today.
There will be a Minecraft movie, and there have been numerous updates that you should be mindful of. Mojang garnered bids from Hollywood producers in 2012 to make Minecraft-related TV series.
However, Mojang emphasized that such projects will only be undertaken when “the right idea comes along.” Can you believe that this untitled movie has been in the masterpieces since 2012?
The movie was actually pushed back several times, and it was even pulled from Warner Bros.’ release schedule at one point. We began to lose hope until something exciting happened.
Over here we will take you back and forth on our Minecraft movies journey. But first, it’s time for some exciting updates.
Everything We Know About The Upcoming Hyped Up ‘Minecraft’ Movie
Let’s begin with the latest announcement and reports. In April 2022, it was revealed that the movie would be resumed, with Jared Hess directing and Jason Momoa starring.
The movie’s classification as a live-action production has also been verified. Yes, the same Jason Momoa who is well-known for his appearances in Aquaman and, of course, Game of Thrones.
Jason Momoa is reportedly in “final negotiations” to join the cast of the upcoming Minecraft blockbuster. The actor hasn’t been confirmed yet but the ‘talks’ will hopefully be a good thing for Minecraft enthusiasts.
This extraordinary video game adaptation will be produced by Vu Bui, Roy Lee, Mary Parent, and Lydia Winters. Now that Jason is involved in the negotiations, we can be confident that it will not be postponed again due to the addition of a starlet actor.
Let’s keep our fingers crossed.
What Is The Untitled Minecraft Movie Going To Be About?
Now that you know Jason is most likely going to appear in this future movie, you’re probably wondering about the storyline. Individuals who have been updated since 2019 should be familiar with the story, but if you aren’t, don’t worry, we’ve got you covered.
The movie will mostly revolve around after the malicious Ender Dragon sets out on a path of destruction, a teenage girl and her unusual band of explorers must save their beautiful, blocky Overworld.
In the same year, it was also said that “making a live-action, a full-length feature film is really complicated.”
Along with Jason, another actor, Steve, was in negotiations for the movie. And in case you’re curious, here’s what we know. By November 2016, it had been rumored that Steve Carell was in negotiations to appear in the movie, but had dropped out owing to schedule issues.
At the moment, we just know of Jason’s involvement. However, if it is approved and the movie begins production, we will receive more information in the near future.
And more updates mean more glances at the cast, which is another great thing we’ve been anticipating.
Production will mostly resume later this year. Lydia Winters and Mary Parent have also been appointed as producers, with Cale Boyter serving as an executive producer.
