Here's more from the "anything can be turned into a movie" files (remember there's a "Where's Waldo?" film on the way). The latest toy-that-doesn't seem-like-a-movie? LEGO.
You know it, the little clicky blocks that are permanently embedded in every parent's foot. Warner Bros. is reportedly making a movie about them, using a mix of animation and live-action. (Live action LEGOS! Imagine being an actor and your first IMDB credit is "yellow LEGO piece." This really is like an Onion article.)
"LEGO" will reportedly be written by the guys behind "Cloudy With a Chance Of Meatballs," which bodes well for the blocky offering.
The best comment from the movie blogs comes from George Wales at TotalFilm, who writes: The film’s production team are clearly striving for authenticity, as witnessed by their frequent trip to Lego’s Denmark HQ. Presumably they’re there to find out how a Lego man would really react in a given situation."
"LEGO" is scheduled for a 2014 release. Until then, here's my favorite live-action LEGO offering.
Michael Jackson's "Thriller" music video remade with Legos, shot for shot.
Is a LEGO movie a sign of the apocalypse, or a fun idea? Tell us in the comments.
