Shawn Levy To Direct ‘Minecraft’ Movie?

17 October 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Children of the world can rejoice today as their favourite computer game Minecraft is getting a film. First announced by Warner Brothers all the way back in February, many thought (and hoped) that this project had been shelved. Unfortunately this was not the case as news breaks today that the production is very close to signing Shawn Levy on to direct.

Having previously worked on family friendly films Night At The Museum, Cheaper By The Dozen and Reel Steel, it would seem that Levy is the ideal candidate to bring the game to life. Just what the plot of the film will be remains to be shared though the game isn’t exactly action-packed; the game poses no threat of dying and having to start over. The premise of the game is purely to build things, sort of like a virtual Lego.

Minecraft won’t be the only film based »

The Minecraft Movie Is Circling This Imaginative Director

17 October 2014 7:56 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Before The Lego Movie's release this past February, no one would have imagined that the film would have turned out the way that it did. Crowds loved it for its humor and heart, and the box office returns showed that if you take the right approach to a seemingly unapproachable subject, moviegoers will follow. Warner Bros is hoping to strike that iron once more with the popular video game Minecraft, and they're approaching director Shawn Levy to make the magic happen. Deadline scooped the news of the Night At The Museum director's possible hiring into the film adaptation of the overnight video game success story. While Levy most recently directed This Is Where I Leave You, audiences will remember that the director has also made films like the forthcoming Night At The Museum: Secret Of The Tomb and Real Steel. Since Minecraft is basically the digital equivalent of a »

Night at the Museum director attached to Minecraft movie

17 October 2014 2:14 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Night at the Museum director Shawn Levy has been linked to the Minecraft movie.

Levy, whose previous credits also include Date Night and Real Steel, is said to be in talks with Warner Bros to direct the film, reports Deadline.

The film will be produced by The Lego Movie's Roy Lee, as well as Jill Messick, whose credits include Mean Girls and Hot Rod.

A Mojang executive recently said that the Minecraft film is unlikely to arrive before 2017.

Chief operating officer Vu Bui also emphasised that the film just tells one of the countless possible stories from Minecraft's build-it-yourself world.

Talks between Warner Bros and Mojang about a Minecraft film were first announced in February.

Microsoft recently purchased Minecraft and Mojang for $2.5bn. »

Shawn Levy to direct Minecraft movie

16 October 2014 11:29 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It was announced a few months ago that Warner Bros. had acquired the rights to the video game Minecraft and are planning to create a movie adaptation. Well, that movie has now landed a director in Shawn Levy, known for directing the Night at the Museum series, The Internship, Real Steel and most recently This Is Where I Leave You.

Minecraft has sold 54 million copies across multiple platforms and has a huge following. The game allows players to be creative, constructing the world that is randomly generated out of blocks. The game also allows players to explore these worlds, gather resources, craft items and fight enemies.

Roy Lee and Jill Sobel Messick are producing the movie, but there is currently no screenwriter attached to the project or start date for production. It is rather hard to imagine how a Minecraft movie would work but clearly their is a vision that the studio has. »

Shawn Levy in Talks to Direct the 'Minecraft' Video Game Adaptation

16 October 2014 1:56 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

As the Night at the Museum franchise comes to an end, director Shawn Levy is looking to get into a different kind of adventure as Deadline reports he's currently in talks to direct an adaptation of the video game Minecraft. Warner Bros. picked up the rights to the video game in February for The Lego Movie producer Roy Lee and his Vertigo production banner. Much like The Lego Movie, there are endless possibilities for what can be done with a game like this that lets players begin with a black canvas and create whatever they want to. But as of now there's no indication as to what story the feature film will employ. In the game, players have an avatar that acts as a builder where they use cubes to build whatever they want to in order to protect them from nocturnal monsters. It's like throwing a Master Builder into The Maze Runner. »

Night At The Museum director offered Minecraft movie

16 October 2014 1:55 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Warner Bros has reportedly offered the job of making the Minecraft movie to Night At The Museum's Shawn Levy...

And the Warner Bros announcements just keep on coming. Earlier this week, we learned the shape of the DC movie universe, the fact that David Yates is coming back to direct the Harry Potter spin-off Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them, and the dates for the three planned Lego movies named so far.

Now, there's been a bit of progress on the studio's planned movie of the videogame phenomenon, Minecraft. It's been reported that Shawn Levy, best known for directing the three Night At The Museum films, along with Real Steel, has been offered the chance to direct. At the moment, Variety states that he's "in talks to develop" the project. But the director's chair is likely to be part of the deal.

Levy, to our knowledge, hasn't yet signed on the dotted line. »

Minecraft The Movie Will be Directed by Shawn Levy

16 October 2014 1:40 PM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Fan poster by DeviantArt user SupMissTasty

Earlier this year it was reported that Warner Bros. would be developing a big screen adaptation of the addictive video game Minecraft. Deadline now reports that the studio has hired Night at the Museum franchise director Shawn Levy to direct the feature. 

In the game, players create their own avatar and are dropped into a blank world filled with nocturnal monsters. Players then use cubes to create, build, and destroy structures and other forms across multiple game modes and various players. 

The movie will be a live-action adaptation, which seems weird because it would fit a lot better in a CG animated universe. Creating it in live-action would take away the the look of the brand, which the players have become accustomed to. Who knows though, maybe Levy has a way to make it all work. 

This seems like a movie that Levy would »

Filmmaker Shawn Levy ("Night at the Museum," "Real Steel") has signed on to develop and direct the film adaptation of the highly popular open world video game "Minecraft" for Warner Bros. Pictures.

Officially launched in 2011, the project allows players to use cubes to build walls to protect them from evil nocturnal monsters in a world known as The Nether. The game has since evoled though with players crafting astounding creations.

The official site for the game has over 100 million registered users, the XBox version alone has sold over 10 million copies.

The project does not have a screenwriter attached at this time. Roy Lee and Jill Sobel Messick are producing.

Shawn Levy in Talks to Direct Minecraft Movie

16 October 2014 12:51 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Back in February, we reported that Warner Bros. had acquired the rights to adapt the ridiculously popular video game Minecraft into a film with Roy Lee (The Lego Movie) producing alongside Jill Messick (Mean Girls).  The open-world game is from Swedish indie developers Mojang Ab, and allows players to create a world with textured cubes.  Different modes have the players either fighting for survival or they can simply build away without any restraints aside from a lack of rounded corners. I don't understand Minecraft at all, which makes me feel super-old, but Warner Bros. thinks Night at the Museum director Shawn Levy might have a good take on the material.  Hit the jump for more. Deadline reports that Levy is in talks to direct Minecraft, a franchise that could be lucrative due to brand-name recognition, and more importantly, the success of The Lego Movie, which also took blocks and turned »

Shawn Levy Boards ‘Minecraft’ Movie

16 October 2014 11:34 AM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Exclusive: Warner Bros is in talks with Shawn Levy to develop to direct Minecraft, the hot video game franchise that Warner Bros acquired in February on the heels of the studio’s success with The Lego Movie. The game was created by Swedish indie developer Mojang Ab (mojang means “gadget” in Swedish), and the film is being produced by Roy Lee through his Vertigo banner along with Jill Messick. Lee produced The Lego Movie with Dan Lin, which has sequels and spinoffs planned. Like that film, Minecraft provides a brand name and a blank canvas on which to launch a multiple audience quadrant film franchise. The Xbox version of the game has already sold well over 10 million copies.

'Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb' Poster Rounds Up Exhibits

16 October 2014 10:25 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Though we're a little disappointed that Merry Friggin' Christmas doesn't look like all that promising of a film to contain one of the final performances Robin Williams delivered before his untimely death, maybe he'll get a proper send off in Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb, where he reprises his role as Teddy Roosevelt. A new poster has arrived pegging this one as the final adventure for Ben Stiller and the rest of the museum exhibits (they're pretty much all featured here) that come to life at night. These films have never been masterpieces, but as family friendly adventure comedies, I've enjoyed them. Look below! Here's the new poster for Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb from Fandango: If you haven't watched the teaser trailer for Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb, see it here.

2 Posters for Night At The Museum: Secret Of The Tomb

16 October 2014 8:33 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

20th Century Fox has released two posters for Ben Stiller's Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb. I never would have thought that a movie like this would actually get a decent movie poster design. I'm sure the first poster above looks familiar as it is inspired by Dutch artist M.C. Escher's "Relativity" art. Most of the posters we've seen for this franchise have been painfully generic, like the second poster that you see below. 

Get ready for the wildest and most adventure-filled Night at the Museum ever as Larry (Stiller) spans the globe, uniting favorite and new characters while embarking on an epic quest to save the magic before it is gone forever.

The movie also stars the late Robin Williams, Owen Wilson, Steve Coogan, Ricky Gervais, Dan Stevens, Rebel Wilson, and Ben Kingsley. It's set to open in theaters on December 19th.
