Is He Gonna Be Steve?
In news no one was expecting today ...
When I think about Minecraft, my mind doesn’t immediately go “live-action movie adaptation.”
This, of course, means that we are getting a live-action adaptation, and one that stars …

Minecraft Dungeons to give it some kind of plot, or are we just gonna go for broke with the
original game? Is Momoa playing a dedicated Minecraft player? A video game developer
trying to create the next big thing?
