Based on the globally popular video game in which players craft buildings, weapons and even environments in a sandbox world, the film will follow a teenage girl and her unlikely group of adventurers who, after the malevolent Ender Dragon sets out on a path of destruction, must save their beautiful, blocky Overworld.
Vertigo’s Roy Lee and Jon Berg are producing, with Jill Messick, who died in February 2018, still credited as a producer. Video game developer Mojang, which created the game, is also on board as a producer. And Jon Spaihts will serve as executive producer.
