The live-action Minecraft movie, announced in 2014, has been quiet for a while, but the project still seems alive and kicking. Now, actor Jason Momoa is in negotiations with Warner Bros. for the lead role in the film.
The Minecraft movie was announced in 2014 by Marcus ‘Notch’ Persson, the mastermind behind the popular game. Since then, the project didn’t seem to make much headway. The film was initially scheduled to release in 2019, but was indefinitely postponed the year before due to the departure of director Rob McElhenney (It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia). The project was eventually given a March 2022 release date, but the film was postponed again in 2020 due to the corona pandemic.
Now that Jason Momoa is in the final stages of negotiation, it looks like the movie is finally getting some momentum. The film also has a director, namely Jared Hess (Napoleon Dynamite). It is not yet known what the film will be about.
