Fresh of the success of The LEGO Movie, Warner Bros. has acquired the rights to make a movie based on Minecraft for the PC, Xbox 360 and PS3 it was revealed Thursday.

Deadline Hollywood was the first to report the news which was later confirmed by Mojang co-founder and Minecraft creator Markus "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!" Persson wrote cheekily on Twitter in response.

According to Deadline, The Lego Move producer Roy Lee is to be a producer on the Minecraft film along with Jill Messick (Mean Girls and Mean Moms).

The game has turned into a monster hit so far with more than 14 million PC users and approximately the same amounts for the Xbox 360 and mobile platforms. A Playstation 3 version was released in December and console developer 4J Studios is currently working on PS4 and Xbox One versions in conjunction with Title Update 14 as well as a PS Vita version.
