Lego: The Movie

Phil Lord and Chris Miller to co-direct adap


Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller have signed on to direct a movie based on… Lego.

Last week we had a trolls adap getting the greenlight, Ridley Scott is still toiling away at his Monopoly, and Peter Berg is creating Battleship, so why not a movie based on Lego?

According to The Hollywood Reporter, “it will be an adventure in the Lego world mixing live action and animation”. Lord and Miller apparently pitched the idea to Warner Bros, who snapped it up with a proviso that it should be in 3D (duh).

And that’s about all we know so far. Will it end up being a Tron-like effort, in which people are transported into a world made of Lego, and must fight all manner of complicated brick constructions?

Who knows. But if Lord and Miller have any clue, they’ll take a look at Berg’s Battleship concept – which drags the Battleship game into a cool-looking alien war flick setting. We like random.

Before Lego, the duo will be adapting ‘80s TV series 21 Jump Street into a movie starring Jonah Hill. Yeah, talk about diverse.

Bricking it? Or quite fancy it? Talk to us…
