Warner Bros. has recently announced the release date for their upcoming CG-animated feature based on the LEGO franchise: Feb. 28, 2014. Warner Bros. LEGO feature will be helmed by Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, and will be based on a story penned by Dan and Kevin Hageman, featuring some of the most popular characters from LEGO, as well as new ones that were made specifically for the movie.
Lord and Miller got a lot of positive attention recently due to their hit big screen adaptation of TV’s 21 Jump Street, but long time fans know them better as the directors of the 2009 animated comedy adventure Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, and MTV’s Clone High. Cloudy will have a sequel on 2014 as well, but it will no longer be under the watch of Lord and Miller.
The LEGO movie will be produced by Dan Lin (Sherlock Holmes, Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows) and Roy Lee (The Departed, How to Train Your Dragon).
