It's not specified what Momoa's role would be in the movie, but The Hollywood Reporter has revealed who else will be involved with this Warner Bros. project behind the scenes. Here's the full rundown:
"Napoleon Dynamite filmmaker Jared Hess will direct the project, based on the popular video game...Dune producer Mary Parent and Roy Lee will produce, with Jill Messick receiving a posthumous producing credit for developing the film before her death in 2018. Executive producers include Jon Berg, Cale Boyter and Jon Spaihts. The video game hails from Sweden’s Mojang Studios, with Mojang’s Lydia Winters and Vu Bui also producing the film."
The Minecraft live-action movie was originally revealed in 2014. Our previous update on Nintendo Life dates back to April 2019 when Minecraft developer Mojang announced a release date for the film including story details. Since then, there have been countless delays and changes behind the scenes, and well clearly the movie is still a long way off.
