The “Lego” Movie Clicks Into Place
After several years in development and lots of back and forth with the toy company, Warner Bros. Pictures is moving forward with “Lego: The Movie” for a 2014 release says Variety.
Back in 2008 Dan and Kevin Hageman (“Hotel Transylvania”) were hired to pen the script for a live-action/animation hybrid family comedy based in the magical land of Lego.
Then last year Phil Lord and Chris Miller (“Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs”) came onboard the project and now it has been greenlit with casting to begin in January.
Visual effects house Animal Logic is expected to provide 80% of the animation. Chris McKay (“Robot Chicken”) is also onboard to co-direct the project which will be produced in Australia. Details will be announced at a press conference in Sydney this coming week.
