The makers of Minecraft have unearthed a pretty good morsel of movie news. Rob McElhenney, best known for co-creating and co-starring in the long-running FX/FXX series It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia, has just been selected to direct the Minecraft movie that Warner Bros is developing.
McElhenney is somewhat of a Hollywood legend. After getting sick of doing audition after audition, McElhenney and a group of friends independently shot a few episodes of their sitcom idea, It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia.
Alongside Glenn Howerton and Carlie Day, they sold the show to FX after pitching it to several networks.
Warner Bros. bought the rights to Minecraft after the studio made millions off the Lego Movie.
The game was created by developer Mojang AB and was acquired by Microsoft for a ton of money. But, it is going to be interesting to see how a game that consists of a group of people creating buildings one block at a time can be transformed into a movie.
