Jack Black is adding yet another video game-to-movie adaptation to his belt. On Tuesday (Jan. 2), Deadline reported that the actor will be starring in Minecraft — based on the the popular block building adventure game by Mojang Studios, and distributed by Microsoft — alongside Aquaman star, Jason Momoa.

Black’s role in the movie, as well as the plot and its writing credits, are currently being kept under wraps, but according to the outlet, he will be taking on the role of Steve in the movie. Emma Myers, Danielle Brooks and Sebastian Eugene Hansen will also star in the upcoming film.

Black’s forthcoming role marks one of his many forays into the world of video games. Most recently, Black took on the role of the spiky-shelled super villain Bowser in The Super Mario Bros Movie. The film, which grossed over $1.36 billion in worldwide box office, saw Black gain traction online thanks to the film’s love song, “Peaches,” in wish he passionately pined for the affections of Princess Peach. The track also earned the 54-year-old his first solo entry on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, peaking at No. 83 on the all genre tally.

The School of Rock actor will also be starring in Borderlands — based on the first person looter and shooter video game of the same name — set to arrive this year on Aug. 9. The late 2010s saw Black have leading in roles in Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle and its sequel, Jumanji: The Next Level in 2017 and 2019 respectively.
