Lego: The Piece of Resistance is going to be a movie. Legos. It’s happening. We are finally hitting that point where anything can be a movie. I’m anxiously awaiting Crocs: The Movie inspired by Crocs The Shoes now.
But anyway this movie is going to be live action/animation hybrid and is going to star Chris Pratt as the lead character, and Will Arnett as Lego Batman. Channing Tatum is also in talks to be Lego Superman. I honestly think this is kind of awesome. It’s going to be directed by Phil Lord and Christopher Miller (Clone High, Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, 21 Jump Street) and Chris McKay (Robot Chicken). I can’t think of better people to bring the Lego world to life in a fun way.
Chris Pratt is going to be a Lego dude named Emmet, who gets mistaken for the MasterBuilder, and joins a fellowship to stop a badguy from gluing the world together.
I love that. If Lego Batman and Superman are the sidekicks along with other cameos from other DC heroes and villains this could be fun like Wreck It Ralph is going to be fun.
My only issue with the film is that DC sucks. How can you guys rightfully have Batman and Superman in a movie together and it not be Justice League? It’s almost embarrassing that a Lego movie is going to do first, what should have been done already.
DC get your shit together.
I absolutely skipped over all news regarding this.
Now that I’ve read who is making it I’m in. I love everything in that list of credits
Right there with you Pete, seems like such a weird idea for a movie… until you find out the filmmakers behind it. Now I’m totally in. People are speculating that they could bring in other Warner Brothers’ properties that are also Lego, like Harry Potter(sqee!) and Lord of the Rings(double sqee!)
