Mac from ‘It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia’ to direct ‘Minecraft’ movie

Mojang has named the director for its upcoming Minecraft movie and it’s none aside from that cute doofus from It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia — Mac, or actor/author Rob McElhenney.

The corporate made the transient announcement yesterday on its website: “Hiya there! A few of you could have seen this man hanging round MINECON in London a pair weeks in the past. He’s Rob McElhenney, and he’s going to be directing the upcoming Minecraft movie.”

That’s it. That’s all we all know in regards to the upcoming Minecraft movie, as it’s nonetheless in the earliest levels of improvement.

If you happen to’ve ever watched It’s Always Sunny… on FX, you recognize the present follows 4 idiots who run a trashy Irish pub in Philadelphia. “The gang” is extraordinarily self-centered and their quests for fortune, fame and glory typically focus on these themes.

Oh, and Danny DeVito is good in the sequence, too.

Whereas McElhenney performs a very silly man on Sunny, he’s fairly intelligent in actual life. From Deadline: “McElhenney was a struggling actor who was fed up with auditions when he and Glenn Howerton gathered Charlie Day and their cohorts and went out and shot episodes for the raucous sitcom thought It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia. Based mostly on what they shot, they bought the present to FX after pitching seven networks.”

This may very well be very fascinating…McElhenney already posted his new gig to Twitter:

Hey @Mojang let’s do one thing unusual and great.
