Phil Lord & Chris Miller - Lego

They've converted me! Warner Bros just made one of the smartest decisions ever in hiring Phil Lord and Chris Miller, the filmmaker's behind Sony's Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs, to write and direct their Lego movie. You may remember when this announced last year we thought it was just going to be another toy adaptation that no one wants to see, but Lord and Miller are two of the best up-and-coming filmmakers around. Now that I know they're working on it, I'm actually kind of curious to see what they'll do. The plot is being kept under wraps, but it is said to be an adventure in the Lego world mixing live action and animation.

Heat Vision says that Lord and Miller are in "final negotiations" to write and direct, with Dan Lin, Roy Lee and the Lego Group producing. The two younger filmmakers (also responsible for the cult animated show "Clone High") prepared a presentation that apparently won over both the Warner Bros execs and the Lego execs. They're version features both live-action and animation, and I have a feeling it will be truly inventive and creative, which is why I'm excited to see it. Lord and Miller are also attached to Sony's 21 Jump Street movie, which is supposed to start shooting this year, but we haven't heard anything about that in a while.

    they look 12 !! But good on em, Meatballs was a fantastic movie.

    Lego: The Movie ... And they are keeping the plot underwraps ... Yeah, I can see why; someone dastardly fiend from Snakes and Ladders or Candyland might seal it for a movie of their own And the sad part is that while a Lego movie is being planned The Hobbit is in trouble .. Am I the only one who thinks Hollywood is in deep shit?

    Nah. This is probably a bad idea, and even if people actually line up to see it, it'll just be a reminder of how desperate people are for ideas (money) to keep their company from going uner. Meatballs was okay. I think it ran on gags mostly. Anyone interested in a movie that has anything to do with lego is crazy. Sorry dude.

    CLOUDY was insanely entertaining and i was fearing a horrible murder of the book I loved as a child. I find it tough to gauge them on just 1 movie Im familiar with, but their involvement makes me feel as though a Lego movie could come together.......looking forward to more updates!
