Minecraft Movie Finally Finds Replacement Director for Rob McElhenney

Minecraft Movie Finally Finds Replacement Director for Rob McElhenney
The Minecraft movie has new life as Peter Sollett has signed on to direct the video game adaptation for Warner Bros. This particular project has been gestating for some time, as the studio first gained the rights to the wildly popular video game in 2014. Since then, it's proved to be a tricky egg to crack, but now they have a new creative mind on the case that may be able to finally get this movie moving in the right direction.

According to a new report, Peter Sollett, who, on the movie front, most recently directed 2015's Freeheld, had been brought on to both write and direct Minecraft. The writing is particularly important, as it sounds as though he may be starting from scratch. At the very least, Sollett is going to be doing a fairly significant rewrite, which means we're not likely to see the movie start filming any time terribly soon.
