Minecraft, the ever-popular world-crafting game from Mojang, is set to become a movie. The director for such a project has just been announced.
Game creators Mojang announced recently that the director, for their upcoming film, is going to be Rob McElhenney. You may recognise that name, and you’d be right to. McElhenney is the brains behind It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia.
Over 35 million copies of Minecraft have been sold since its release, so it’s no surprise that such a project has arisen from the franchises success.
The film in question will be created by Warner Bros Animation, the guys behind The Lego Movie (2014), so we already have very high expectations!
Mojang founder Markus Persson left the company last year after Microsoft acquired the company for $2.5bn, stating that he “can’t be responsible for something this big.”
The film is set to be released in 2017, and we can’t wait to see what Warner Bros / Mojang have planned.
