Warner Bros. has announced it is moving ahead with plans to produce a live action/animation hybrid movie centered around the LEGO toy.

Animal Logic out of Australia will provided the special effects and animation for the movie, and though nothing has been announced as far as actors or story goes, but the studio is looking at a 2014 release.

“Lego” has been in development at Warner Bros. since 2008, when the studio began working with the toymaker on a family comedy based on the popular building blocks with Dan Lin and Roy Lee producing and the writing team of Dan and Kevin Hageman tapped to pen the script. In 2010, Warners brought on the “Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs” team of Phil Lord and Christopher Miller to write and direct.

Casting will begin in January.

    Hmmm, this should be interesting to say the least. I wonder if there will be voice acting.

You know you have something to say, say it in the comment section
