G.I. Joe, Stretch Armstrong, ViewMaster, and by the time you read this, probably Slinky are getting the movie treatment, so it comes as no surprise that LEGO is being targeted by Hollywood for a film adaptation.  Dan and Kevin Hageman have been hired by Warner Bros. to write a movie around the building toy.

The live action-CG hybrid is described as a movie set in the world of Lego that centers on the subject of child-like imaginations and examines themes of creativity and teamwork in the manner of “Toy Story.” While the pic will have elements for children, the studio is hoping the film is a four-quadrant play that can also appeal to adults.

With the success of the LEGO themed video games, and the fact the toys have been around since the mid 60’s, it wouldn’t surprise me to see more adults in the theater if and when the movie finally debuts.  The big question is, what themed set should be featured in the film?  Space, Castle, Adventure, or the ever popular City theme?  If the City theme gets the nod, expect to see a ton of police and gas stations throughout the movie.

  1. that would be awesome…kind of like the awesome that is that giant lego spider on top the brown building in the pic. lol

  2. I think my parents gave all my lego away to a charity shop which is nice but it denies me the ability to make a lego city which I wish I could do at least twice a year. This makes me want to for the second time in 2009.
