Jason Momoa has starred in blockbusters over the years. The 42-year-old essayed the role of Aquaman, first in 2017’s “Justice League” and then in 2018’s “Aquaman.” Now, Warner Bros. want him to star in another potential blockbuster.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Momoa is in final talks to star in a live-action version of Minecraft. The movie will be produced by Warner Bros. The studio has been trying to kickstart the project for years.

Minecraft is one of the most successful video games of all time. The game’s success prompted Microsoft to purchase Mojang, the makers of Minecraft, in September 2014.

Gaming movies have become one of the most successful genres in Hollywood over the last couple of years. Warner Bros. want to replicate the success of The Lego Movie with Minecraft.

Momoa, meanwhile, already has multiple projects slated for release in 2023. The actor will reprise his role in 2023’s “Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom” in addition to emerging as the new villain in “Fast & Furious 10.”
