I know Blockbuster! I’m sorry couldn’t resist.
Morgan Freeman along with Elizabeth Banks have signed on to voice characters in Lego: The Movie. Following the crazy success of giving Lego characters voices in the recent Lego Batman 2, we will be seeing Lego characters in the bigscreen. Morgan will be playing a character named Vitruvius, no word on Banks’ character yet.
Phil Lord and Chris Miller are in the director seats for this and describe the story as ” a young man who doesn’t have a creative bone in his body and [he] has to always build things from the instructions. … He’s an ‘instructions worker.’ In the LEGO city, they build buildings, and it turns out in this universe it’s illegal to build apart from the instructions. So what he finds out is that he’s actually [a] descendant from these like super creative Jedi-type people who are called ‘Master Builders’ and he has been charged with saving the universe from being frozen together by an evil bad guy, so over the course of the movie he has to unlearn all of that lame-o, uncreative stuff and learn how to build without all of the instructions in order to save the universe.”
The Lego movie will open February 28, 2014 . . . Get in line now!
