In a statement that was issued to Polygon, Notch said his early reveal was inspired by the impending leak in a Deadline article, which claims Warner Bros. has already acquired the rights and that the fledgling deal is already attracting “huge interest”.

“It’s for real. I think every part of that tweet was real, including me wanting to be the one to spill the news about a potential movie,” Notch said.

“It would be nice to tell people when it’s 100% solid rather than to leak it before it’s completely final, but our hands were a bit tied and rushed here.”
