[UPDATE] Deadline reports that The LEGO Movie producer Roy Lee will produce the live-action Minecraft movie alongside Jill Messick (Mean Girls).

The original story is below.

Looks like Warner Bros has been tapped to be working on a potential Minecraft movie. Creator Markus "Notch" Persson revealed the news on Twitter earlier today.

According to Notch's post on Twitter, an individual attempted to pre-emptively leak the news. The Minecraft creator followed up with, "I wanted to be the leak!"

The crowdfunding campaign for a Minecraft-inspired full-length feature film was recently shut down. Developer Mojang's End User License Agreement (EULA) for Minecraft specifies that users cannot "make commercial use of anything we've made" or "try to make money from anything we've made."

A documentary chronicling the development of Minecraft was produced by 2 Player Productions and released in December 2012. Other Minecraft licensing deals have included arrangements for various clothing, accessories, and toys.
