Video Game News, Reviews and Reflection! New Articles Released Randomly Every Week!
Yes, it’s another motion picture based on a video game, and the mass majority of them are terrible, but we may about to see a change in the trend.
Rob McElhenney, the star/writer/creator of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, has officially been tapped for the director’s chair on the new Minecraft movie. Mojang, the Swedish video game developer behind the massively successful Minecraft game, announced the decision yesterday.
Shawn Levy, director of Night at the Museum and Real Steel, was previous attached to direct, however differences between Levy and Mojang on story direction led to the former’s departure from the project.
While McElhenney has little directing experience with a handful of Always Sunny episodes to his name, his experience in development, producing and writing will certainly be helpful to him in this project.
No plot information is currently available for the movie, though if McElhenney has any input, the potential for a hit is certainly there. The Minecraft movie has no official release date and an estimate of sometime in 2018-19.
