Your eyes do not deceive you. Yes, a LEGO movie is in the works and the studio bringing the movie to the big screen is Warner Brothers. Warner Brothers has licensed some of its characters (i.e. Batman) to the Lego franchise and in 2007 bought in with TT Games, the video game publisher, who are responsible for producing the popular “Lego” video game line including “Lego Star Wars”, “Lego Indiana Jones”, and “Lego Batman”. According to Variety, the film has been in development for more than a year and Dan Lin will be producing the film through Lin Pictures.
Leo has made direct-to-DVD movies before, but can a theatrical release for LEGO’s and LEGO people be successful in terms of domestic and world-wide box offices? Who knows…perhaps we may be seeing a Sims movie not too far behind.
