Wow, two It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia posts in one day! Rob McElhenney, creator and star of It’s Always Sunny … just got tapped to direct the forthcoming Minecraft movie from Warner Bros.

Based on the smash hit game that was recently acquired by Microsoft, Warner Bros. is hoping to capitalize on the success it had with other block-related sensation The Lego Movie.

McElhenney, who just sold his first directorial effort, an action-adventure movie called Figment to Legendary Pictures is the perfect choice to get a serious buzz going about the film from kids AND adults!
