Warner Bros. MINECRAFT Movie Moves Forward with a New Director
Warner Bros. has been trying to get a feature film adaptation of Minecraft off the ground for some time now. Both Shawn Levy (Stranger Things) and Rob McElhenney (It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia) were attached to direct it at different points. But things didn’t work out with them.
According to Variety, the studio is moving forward with the project with a new director, and that director is Peter Sollett. This will be his biggest film to date. His best known films are Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist and Raising Victor Vargas. He’s an interesting choice, but he just might deliver a solid movie.
As far as the film’s story goes, it will follow “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.”
The studio hopes that they are able to build big movie franchise out of this. It is possible because the franchise is has huge world-wide recognition.
This Minecraft film is sure to be a big hit. The big question is… will it actually be good?
