"Someone is trying leak the fact that we're working with Warner Brothers on a potential Minecraft Movie," tweeted Minecraft creator Markus 'Notch' Persson. "I wanted to be the leak!"
When asked for more detail, Persson joked: "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. Also, I [am] very well aware that this might be Minecraft jumping the shark, but how often do you get to be part of making a movie?""
Warner acquired the rights from Mojang earlier this year, and the live-action film will have Roy Lee and Jill Messick as producers. Lee just produced the hit "The Lego Movie."
