Directors Picked For LEGO Flick

Postby Staff » Tue Jun 29, 2010 11:02 pm

A LEGO movie has been rumored and in the works for some time now, but recent events may have solidified plans for the film, via heat vision:


Phil Lord and Chris Miller, the helmers behind Sony Animation’s hit “Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs,” are in final negotiations to write and direct the Lego movie, which is being produced by Dan Lin and Roy Lee. Jill Wilfert at Lego is exec producing.

The plot is being kept under wraps, but it will be an adventure in the Lego world mixing live action and animation.

In order to get the gig, Lord and Miller prepared a presentation that not only had to pass muster with Warners brass but also with execs from Lego, which is extremely protective with its toys and brand and had a significant hand in the process.

After winning approval from Warners, they flew up to Bricks by the Bay, the Lego convention in Fremont, to make their pitch to Lego execs. Warners and Lego weren’t sure initially if they wanted a live-action or animated movie, and Lord and Miller went with a scenario that incorporated both.


I would be super-surprised if LEGO forgoes sets based on whatever movie is made. See what I did there? I made it relevant.

Thanks to Dano Anonymous Tipster for the tip.
