Jason Momoa to star in ‘Minecraft’ live-action movie for Warner Bros.


Jason Momoa is set to star in Warner Bros. Studios’ upcoming live-action ‘Minecraft’ movie.  Momoa is in final negotiations to star in the live-action film based on the massively popular video game.

Minecraft is a first-person survival game developed and published by Sweden’s Mojang Studios. The first installment in the franchise debuted in November 2011, with the latest, ‘Minecraft Dungeons,’ being released in May 2020. Minecraft allows players to mine materials and use blocks to create structures and virtual worlds. It is the best-selling video game of all time, with more than 238 million copies sold.

Warner Bros. has been developing a project based on the video game for years, at one point, Steve Carell was expected to star in Minecraft’s movie adaptation.  Napoleon Dynamite filmmaker Jared Hess will direct the Minecraft film, from a script by Chris Bowman and Hubbell Palmer; and Jill Messick will receive a posthumous producing credit for developing the movie before her death in 2018.
