It's a BLOCKBUSTER: Minecraft heads to the silver screen

Warner Bros to make movie out of addictive block-shifting game

Providing a secure and efficient Helpdesk

The creators of smash gaming hit Minecraft have confirmed rumours that the blocktastic game will be turned into a film by Hollywood studio Warner Brothers.

Warner Brothers have bought the rights to Minecraft and Roy Lee, director of the recent Lego Movie, is rumoured to be at the helm.

The game has sold more than 35million copies, meaning a cinematic hit is more or less inevitable.

Markus Persson, creator of the game, tweeted:

Earlier this year, Persson shut down a $600,000 Kickstarter project to make a Minecraft movie.

Perhaps by that stage he had already laid the building blocks for a proper film. ®
