Earlier reports have revealed that "Minecraft" will have its very own movie and a writer has been chosen to do the first draft of the storyline. However, it looks like the movie will have to be rewritten as Warner Bros hire a new writer, Jason Fuchs to take over the script. Meanwhile, Warner Bros are also rumored to be looking for people to bring life to Steve and Alex.
Sources claim that Warner Bros are hoping to have the same success as "The LEGO" with the upcoming "Minecraft" movie. The movie is said to be partially live action but no confirmed reports yet about its casting.
Jason Fuchs has been in the entertainment business since he was seven-years-old. He started as an actor where he was cast in films such as "Flipper" with Elijah Wood, "Louis & Frank", "Jane Austen's Mafia", and "The Hebrew Hammer". It was only in 2012 that he started his career in screenwriting. His debut film as a screenwriter was "Ice Age: Continental Drift" which although received different reviews from critics, was a big box office hit. And because of that, he became the youngest writer in the history of film that earned more than $226 million. Fuchs will be replacing the director who wrote "Doctor Strange", "The Mummy" and "Passengers"
However, fans are debating whether this is a good thing or not as "Pan" didn't do well and its franchise was no longer considered. Moreover, his name was left out of the handouts released at San Diego Comic-Con with the announcement that Allan Heinberg and Geoff Johns were the ones who wrote the screenplay.
Writer Fuchs will be working with director Rob McElhenney for the upcoming film which is slated for a release on May 25, 2019. The movie's storyline or any possible plots have not been established yet but rumor has it that it will take its cue from the game's story mode.
