MINECRAFT Movie Delayed as Director Rob McElhenney Quits
Warner Bros. feature film adaptation of Minecraft is facing some problems and they are currently in the process of restructuring the creative team for the upcoming movie.
Director and co-writer Rob McElhenney have left the project. When The Wrap asked McElhenney about the project he said, “No, that is not happening.”
The movie has been further delayed and is no longer on track to hit its May 2019 release date. But, the studio has hired writing/directing duo of Aaron and Adam Nee to write a new script based on the popular game. Jason Fuchs (Wonder Woman) wrote the previous draft of the screenplay with McElhenney.
Aaron and Adam Nee wrote and directed the 2015 indie Band of Robbers, and they are attached to direct Masters of the Universe for Sony Pictures and Mattel.
