After years of inactivity, the Minecraft film has its star. In keeping with the Ankler, Jason Momoa will headline the franchise, based mostly on the enormously widespread online game.
They provide completely no particulars in regards to the premise of the film or who Momoa will play it it. (I’m guessing he’ll play the title function of Arthur P. Minecraft, however I may very well be mistaken.) Virtually precisely three years in the past to the day of this information, Mojang introduced this Minecraft film was formally within the works, together with its anticipated launch date — March 4, 2022, so clearly issues are barely not on time. At the moment, this was how they described the story for the Minecraft film:
So, what do you need to look ahead to, roughly 25,000 hours from now? Effectively, as you devour your film snack of alternative (we like a suspicious stew with a facet of sq. watermelon), we’ll let you know the story of a teenage woman and her unlikely group of adventurers. After the malevolent Ender Dragon units out on a path of destruction, they need to save their stunning, blocky Overworld. Sounds bold! Fortunately, the very proficient director Peter Sollett (Nick & Norah’s Infinite Playlist) might be ensuring everybody stands in the best place and delivers award-worthy performances. No stress!
Peter Sollett is lengthy gone; based on THR, the Momoa Minecraft might be directed by Jared Hess, whose most well-known work is Napoleon Dynamite.

Jared Hess and Jason Momoa that looks like an … attention-grabbing mixture.
