This is excellent news, a bit outdated, but still excellent. Rob McElhenney will bring a fascinating approach to a beloved video game.
Best known for FX's "It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia", his comedic charm and childlike nature will make an excellent fit for the Microsoft/Mojang property's big screen adaptation. Following in the footsteps of films like "Minions" and "The Lego Movie" The Minecraft film is a sure bet to make some big money at the box office when it's released sometime in the near future. Though no release date has been set, I'm sure that now they have found the perfect director, Warner Bros. "Minecraft" will be fast-tracked into production as soon as possible.
