The long-troubled manufacturing of a Minecraft film appears to lastly be underway, with a report from movie business outlet Productionlist saying that it is scheduled to start out principal images—that’s, begin making the film correct—on August seventh, 2023 in New Zealand.

The movie shall be directed by Napoleon Dynamite and Masterminds director Jared Hess. Maybe extra stunning is that it will star Jason Momoa, although we do not know as who, with different rumors saying that Pedro Pascal will star as Steve. Supposedly very humorous man Matt Berry, of TV collection Toast of London and What We Do in The Shadows, may also make an look.

That is right although, of us: Joel from The Final of Us, aka The Mandalorian, may be Minecraft Steve. Discuss multiverse film potential right there.

We do not know the plot of this movie adaptation, although many retailers are reporting the plot to be that of one of many two earlier, cancelled makes an attempt at a Minecraft film. I count on on the very least a repeating jumpscare gag involving the hissing noise of a Creeper about to blow up.

Not that Minecraft actually has a plot within the first place, which might be why it has been so arduous for these folks to agree on what the film ought to be about. The primary try at a Minecraft film began in 2014 at Warner Bros with It is At all times Sunny in Philadelphia’s Rob McElhenney, however by 2018 had utterly fizzled out. There was then an try helmed by Nick & Norah’s Infinite Playlist director Peter Sollett, however that one was canned by 2020.

Warner Brothers will, supposedly, launch this model of the Minecraft film on April 4th, 2025.
