Does everyone remember Minecraft because Warner Brothers does and they are still trying to figure out how to make pixelated brick into a movie. See it’s different and a lot harder to make then The Lego Movie because it’s pixelated and we clearly can’t have nice video game movies.
Initially the odd choice of Jon Spaiths, Prometheus Writer, was hired to pen the film. Now it is being reported that Jason Fuchs will write the movie.
It seems like this movie is having a little bit of trouble getting out of it’s seat there really is not much you can do with a property like this to a mass audience without blending in as a mimic of The Lego Movie.
Minecraft does not have any canon story line to any extent. The closest thing we have is in the form of the video-game adaption by Telltale Games, Minecrafy Story Mode. Who have managed to make an amazing story out of the license into a narrative based game.
Yet that was still a video game and as much as we would all like it to, most video games just don’t translate well to the big screen and there’s nothing we can do about it.
See you soon, Minecraft Movie i’ll save a little bit of faith for you.
