Steve, meet Steve! A movie version of the hit video game Minecraft is in the works and the first cast member has been announced.
Intending to have an ensemble cast, Steve Carell became the first to begin negotiations on the Rob McElhenney-helming film. Perhaps with the lead character of the game series named Steve, perhaps we will see Steve play Steve? McElhenney is working on the script with Jason Fuchs, who wrote the upcoming Wonder Woman film for Warner Bros. and DC Comics. Roy Lee and Jill Messick are producing the film. Warner Brothers gained the rights to the movie version in February from game creators Mojang.
Minecraft is set for a May 25, 2019 release date from Warner Brothers.
