Jack Black may be set to play one other iconic online game character in a film: Steve from Minecraft. Black is outwardly becoming a member of the solid of the upcoming adaptation of the mega-popular sport, and Deadline reports that he’s going to play Steve, the unique default character pores and skin for Minecraft. Selection also reported that Black is a part of the solid however didn’t say who he may be enjoying.
Black was superb as Bowser in 2023’s The Tremendous Mario Bros. Film (are you additionally humming “Peaches” proper now?) and can painting the snarky robotic Claptrap in the Borderlands movie, however Steve doesn’t actually have an outlined character. He largely exists as a silent vessel for the participant. I’m curious if Black will deliver a muted efficiency to Steve — but when I needed to guess, I think he’ll be a bit of extra zany.
The film can be set to star Jason Momoa, Emma Myers, Danielle Brooks, and Sebastian Eugene Hansen, Deadline says. The film, which has been in improvement for a very long time, is scheduled to hit theaters on April 4th, 2025.
