About a month ago, we learned that Jason Fuchs was selected to write the draft for the upcoming “Minecraft” film. Today, it seems that the movie might be close to signing it’s first star, and one that would be a huge get for the film: Steve Carell.
Variety has learned that Carell is currently in talks to potentially join the Rob McElhenney directed film; the “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia star is also writing the script with Fuchs. Warner Bros. had no comment on the casting or on any ongoing talks between the star.
If this turns out to be true, it would be a huge get for the movie, and could likely attract other stars to join on. Best known for starring in the hit TV series “The Office,” Carell has also lent his voice to many animated films, playing the main character in the “Despicable Me” franchise, as well as playing roles in “Over the Hedge” and “Horton Hears a Who!”
The film, currently set for a May 25, 2019 release, is based on the ridiculously popular 2009 game “Minecraft”, in which players can craft their own world using 3D cubes. There is no word yet on what the film adaptation will use as its story.
