Mojang Minecraft movie

Microsoft’s in-development Minecraft movie has seen a delay from 2022 to no date at all. 

Reported by The Hollywood Reporter, the Minecraft movie has been pushed out of its 4th March 2022 release date with no new date scheduled.

The in-development feature film was originally set to be directed by Nick & Norah’s Infinite Playlist  director Peter Sollett. Not many details are released regarding the film, but it was set to be a live action movie adaptation of the popular survival game.

Here’s the synopsis:

The story of a teenage girl and her unlikely group of adventurers. After the malevolent Ender Dragon sets out on a path of destruction, they must save their beautiful, blocky Overworld.

The movie delay isn’t surprising. Producer Warner Bros recently delayed Dune, The Batman and more to dates so far away some of us may not be around by then. With the ongoing COVID-19 crisis, it’s for the best. (Just please release Dune on digital. I need to watch something other than old Star Trek!)
