‘Minecraft’ Movie Gets ‘It's Always Sunny’ Creator to Direct

‘Minecraft’ Movie Gets ‘It's Always Sunny’ Creator to Direct

Back in October, Rob McElhenney set up a project entitled Figment at Warner Bros., which was slated to be his directorial debut. Since it isn't known when either Figment or Minecraft will move forward first, it remains unclear which of these projects will hit theaters first. Aside from these two movies, he has directed three episodes of It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, and the pilot episode for an FX series entitled Pariah, starring Bill Burr.

Warner Bros. acquired the rights to this popular video game back in February, with Roy Lee producing through his Vertigo Entertainment company alongside Jill Messick. Shawn Levy had been set to direct for just a few months before backing out, since the filmmaker's ideas didn't match up with what Mojang was looking for. Warner Bros. hasn't issued a release date for Minecraft quite yet, so we're not quite sure when production may begin at this time, or when casting may start.
