Some of you may have seen this guy hanging around MINECON in London a couple weeks ago. He’s Rob McElhenney, and he’s going to be directing the upcoming Minecraft movie.
There’s no word on potential stars at the moment, or a title for that matter. We’re guessing they’ll probably go with something like The Minecraft Movie.
Following the massive success of "The Lego Movie," it sounds like block-based blockbusters -- a pun no one could possibly refrain from using -- are a sure-fire recipe for Hollywood success. Up next: the Minecraft movie.
It’s been over two years since Warner Bros. bought the movie rights to indie hit Minecraft, but it took until today for developer Mojang to finally reveal that the Minecraft movie has a release date. (Spoiler alert: it’s gonna be a while.)
