Aquaman and Dune actor Jason Momoa is in early talks to star in a live-action adaptation of Minecraft, which is in the works at Warner Bros.
It seems like we have another wave of video game adaptations coming our way, and the latest to get the movie treatment in the beloved building/survival game Minecraft. Deadline reports that the live-action film is in the works at Warner Bros, with Aquaman’s Jason Momoa in talks to star.
There aren’t any details regarding the plot at the moment, but we do know that Napoleon Dyamite’s Jared Hess is currently set to direct. The script has been written by Chris Bowman and Hubbell Palmer, who penned crime-comedy Masterminds.
The first iteration of Minecraft was developed by Mojang Studios and released in 2011. It has since become extremely popular, and has been released on multiple platforms. Its popularity has led to several spin-offs, including Minecraft Dungeons and Minecraft: Story Mode. It’s even got its own arcade game.
Jason Momoa has recently been seen in franchise blockbusters such as Aquaman and Dune. He’s set to star in sequel Aquaman And The Lost Kingdom, as well as Fast & Furious 10. We’ll have to wait and see whether he signs on for Minecraft, too.
