Variety is reporting that Steve Carell (The Office, The 40-Year-Old Virgin, Anchorman) is currently in talks for a role in the 2019 lie-action Minecraft movie.
It’s unclear exactly who he could be playing in the movie, or if he would be in the starring role. If the movie does pull directly from the source material, though, there’s a good chance he could be playing “Steve”, the game’s silent, often unseen protagonist.
The movie, currently planned for release in May 2019, is being written and directed by It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia creator and star Rob McElhenney. Regarding how the movie will look, or what it will be about? Those details are still a mystery.
