Beating K’NEX to the punch, Warner Bros/Village Roadshow’s The Lego Movie is coming in 2014 with a tagline boasting, “In 2014, the world’s greatest heroes will join forces for the biggest movie ever assembled.” It’s no joke – thanks to some extensive licensing, everyone from Batman to Superman to Wonder Woman to the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles to the 2002 NBA All-Stars (including Lakers-era Shaq) will be making appearances.
The film’s comedy pedigree only gets better from there, as writer-directors Phil Lord and Christopher Miller (21 Jump Street/Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs) lead a voice cast including Chris Pratt, Will Ferrell, Elizabeth Banks, Will Arnett, Nick Offerman, Morgan Freeman, Liam Neeson, Charlie Day, Alison Brie and more. Here’s hoping that they include a scene of a sleepy adult accidentally stepping on a LEGO and unleashing the unholiest string of curse words this side of an R rating.
