Upcoming LEGO Movie Sounds Almost Too Good To Be True

When Warner Bros. was first trying to put a LEGO movie together, one of the groups it approached was Blur Studios. Sadly, their vision of a coming-of-age quest didn't get the nod. But you know what, that's OK. Because what we've got instead might be just as good.

Variety reports that the actual and upcoming movie, called LEGO: The Piece of Resistance, will be directed by Phil Lord and Christopher Miller (Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs). So far, so OK. But some of the actors involved include Parks & Rec's Chris Pratt, who will voice the film's star, while Arrested Development's Will Arnett will play... LEGO Batman. There are also whispers that Channing Tatum will be playing LEGO Superman.

While the news the film will be combination of live-action footage and CG effects is a bit of a bummer, the prospect of LEGO Batman and Superman turning up in this thing together just about makes up for it.

    You must never have seen any of the already existing LEGO movies. I have no hopes for this movie.

      Padawan Menace was great fun.... I have'nt seen any others though.

    Animal Logic has had job listings for a Lego movie for quite some time now.

    Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs was surprisingly watchable, so I won't write it off until I've seen it.

    Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs is one of my favourite movies ever (oddly) so I'll give this a watch.

    why make a lego movie, a minecraft movie would be far better
