Minecraft Movie
« on: July 22, 2015, 08:16:48 AM »
Stoked for the movie... and I LOVE that they chose Mac from Always Sunny to direct it.  That right there alone has me watching the movie.

The Minecraft movie has dug up a director. Rob McElhenney, creator and star of the sitcom "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia", no doubt has an A, B and C strike plan for adapting the hugely popular game into a movie.

Released in 2011, Minecraft is now the third best-selling video game of all time. Microsoft paid $2.5 billion (around 1.6 billion or AU$3.3 billion) to buy the game's developer Mojang, showing the kind of money the game makes. A blockbuster movie will be the latest spin-off of the globally adored gaming phenomenon, which has spawned books, toys, Lego sets and other merchandise.

Mojang announced the news with a photo showing McElhenney wielding a sword at London's Minecraft-themed fanstravaganza MineCon, which took place earlier this month.
