'Minecraft' movie may be made by 'Night at the Museum' director

The Lego Movie made it clear that a film based on a plotless, block-based property could somehow be wildly successful and really funny, so we really ought to be looking forward to the upcoming Minecraft movie. Work on the movie was first announced last year, and now Deadline is reporting that Shawn Levy, director of children's films like Cheaper by the Dozen and the Night at the Museum series, is in talks to direct and develop it. Producers behind The Lego Movie and Mean Girls are already on board, which definitely seems like a good sign. It otherwise doesn't sound like work on Minecraft has gotten too far, which means there's no word yet on what the movie will actually be like or how many hours of it will involve watching someone hit cubes with a pickaxe.
