Warner Brothers has bought the film rights to the computer game Minecraft. 

The game has around 100 million players, according to film site Deadline, and Warner Brothers hopes that this will also fill the seats of cinema theaters.

Minecraft was created by Markus Persson and developed by game company Mojang. Linus Larsson, a journalist and author, has written a book about Persson and how he programmed the game and says that he hopes the movie will, in some way, pay tribute to the game's roots.

"I have no idea how it will turn out but I hope it will take and transform the fundamental aspects of Minecraft into the movie. I just hope it won't be a typical Disney-like movie. Minecraft is a product of independent game development and I hope the movie will reflect that in some way," Larsson says to Radio Sweden.

The producer for the film is, according to Deadline, slated to be Roy Lee and Jill Messick. Lee was the producer for the successful "The Lego Movie."
