Warner Bros Making Lego Film!
Warners has decided to jump on the toys-to-film bandwagon with plans for a film based on Lego.
The studio has hired writers Dan and Kevin Hageman to find some way to turn the building blocks into a CG/live action blend adventure.
And it has even roped in Terminator Salvation producer Dan Lin to oversee it – we’re guessing Lego blocks will be easier to wrangle than Christian Bale when he’s in a mood.
The writers have just finished penning Hotel Transylvania for Sony Animation and came to fame back in 2003 when Steven Spielberg asked them to write an as-yet-unproduced script based on one of his ideas.
There’s zero word on a plot yet according to Variety, but Warners does already have a link with the blocks – it owns the video game studio that makes the likes of Lego Star Wars and Batman. [TF]
