Mojang is in talks with Warner Bros to create a movie based on indie gaming hit Minecraft, says creator Marcus "Notch" Persson.

“Someone is trying leak the fact that we’re working with Warner Brothers on a potential Minecraft Movie. I wanted to be the leak,” tweeted Notch.

“It’s for real. I think every part of that tweet was real, including me wanting to be the one to spill the news about a potential movie,” he continued.

“It would be nice to tell people when it’s 100% solid rather than to leak it before it’s completely final, but our hands were a bit tied and rushed here.”

According to Deadline, Lego Movie producer Roy Lee is already said to be on board.
