Another Popular Actor Joins Jason Momoa In Minecraft Movie!

MOVIE NEWS – After Jason Momoa, no less a star than Jack Black, has joined the cast of the live-action adaptation of the popular video game Minecraft!



As previously announced, Jason Momoa stars alongside Wednesday’s Emma Myers and The Color Purple’s Danielle Brooks in the Minecraft movie. Filming is expected to begin soon in New Zealand.

The project is directed by Napoleon Dynamite director Jared Hess, who previously worked with Black on the 2006 comedy Nacho Libre.

Warner Bros. and Legendary are backing “Minecraft,” which is scheduled to hit theatres on April 4, 2025.

It is unclear what the “Minecraft” movie will be about. Neither does who writes the screenplay. The film version of the game has been in the works for years. Shawn Levy, Rob McElhenney and Peter Sollett also discussed directing.

“Minecraft”, which debuted in 2011, is one of the best-selling video games in history. It boasts more than 140 million monthly users! In the sandbox-style game, players can use coloured blocks to create 3D worlds. The game has also spawned several spin-offs, such as “Minecraft”: Story Mode”, “Minecraft Earth”, “Minecraft Dungeons” and “Minecraft Legends”. The Swedish development company behind the game, Mojang Studios, was acquired in 2014 by Microsoft and is involved in the film adaptation as a producer.

Black has seemingly become Hollywood’s actor of choice for stories from the game to the big screen. After all, he appeared in “The Super Mario Bros. Movie,” “Jumanji: The Next Level” and Lionsgate’s upcoming “Borderlands.” He will next appear in Universal and DreamWorks Animation’s comedy “Kung Fu Panda 4.” Of course, he will play the role of Po again in the film, which will be released in theatres in America on March 8.
