“Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs” and “21 Jump Street” filmmakers Phil Lord and Christopher Miller are set to direct the feature “Lego: The Piece of Resistance” says Variety.
Will Arnett will voice the role of Lego Batman, while Channing Tatum is being sought to voice Superman in the project which will combine live-action and Lego-based animation.
Chris Pratt (“Parks and Recreation”) is set to voice the pic’s lead character, an ordinary and law-abiding Lego mini-figure who is mistaken for the most extraordinary MasterBuilder.
He’s drafted into a fellowship of strangers on a quest to stop an evil tyrant from gluing the universe together. Chris McKay (“Robot Chicken”) will serve as co-director, Dan Lin and Roy Lee are producing, Dan and Kevin Hageman penned the script, and Animal Logic will handle the film’s animation.
A February 28th 2014 release is being targeted.
