Universal Plans LEGO “Hero Factory” Film

Universal is in negotiations to acquire the screen rights to “Hero Factory”, a 2010 line of robotic toy sets from LEGO says Heat Vision.

Unlike other lego toys, the ‘Hero’ line-up comes with a dense mythology built in with various characters “hailing from a planet where a factory churns out robotic machines whose goal is to fight intergalactic evil”.

“Predators” scribes Michael Finch and Alex Litvak are in negotiations to pen the script which would be a live-action adaptation and distinct from the more regular Lego inspired CGI-animated feature in production at Warner Bros. Pictures.

Mark Gordon, Bryan Zuriff, Ben Forkner and Dean Schnider will produce.
