Warner Bros. and director Rob McElhenney are putting together an ensemble cast to translate the video game to the big screen.

Steve Carell is in talks to be the first to board Warner Bros.' Minecraft movie.

The feature project is based on the video game, reportedly the second best-selling game of all time.

The studio and director Rob McElhenney are putting together an ensemble cast to translate the game, which is set in a cube-rich environment where players have avatars to build and destroy their worlds.

Roy Lee is producing.

Carell next stars as Bobby Riggs opposite Emma Stone as Billie Jean King in the true-life tennis tale Battle of the Sexes
