Warner Bros. is all set to move forward with a LEGO movie, and now they may have their directors with in Phil Lord and Chris Miller.
Phil Lord and Chris Miller are in final negotiations to tackle the writing and directing duties of the film. This is the same directing team that brought us “Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs”
According to HeatVision:
“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.”
Currently, “the plot is being kept under wraps, but it will be an adventure in the Lego world mixing live action and animation.” Both Lord and Miller are currently working on a big-screen adaption of the TV series “21 Jump Street” starring Jonah Hill. If they sign on board the duo will follow up with the LEGO movie, which just inched a step closer into full on production with this news.
