“Doctor Strange” scribe Jon Spaihts penned the first draft. Fuchs is currently working with director Rob McElhenney on developing the latest script before writing it.
Warner Bros. acquired film rights to the video game franchise in February from Swedish developer Mojang AB and set it up with Roy Lee through his Vertigo Entertainment production company, along with Jill Messick (“Mean Girls”).
The game, which debuted in 2009, allows players to create their own avatars and build an environment using textured cubes in a 3D world as they battle nocturnal monsters. Multiple gameplay modes are available, including survival mode, creative mode and adventure mode.
The pic is set to bow on May 25, 2019.
Fuchs, who wrote last year’s “Pan” for Warner Bros, has also written Wonder Woman for the studio, and is currently writing DC Comics’ Lobo. His film “Break My Heart 1000 Times” is in development at Gold Circle, with Bella Thorne attached.
He is repped by WME and Brookside Artists Management.
