...written and directed by Phil Lord & Christopher Miller (Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, 21 Jump Street)... that alone means I'm in, shit.
LEGO is set to burst out of the big screen in 3D on February 28, 2014, Warner Bros announced today. Directed by Phil Lord & Christopher Miller, who also wrote the screenplay, the computer-animated adventure will feature some classic and some new characters from the world of the construction toys. Long time Robot Chicken director Chris McKay is also attached as co-director. Lord and Miller worked together on this year’s 21 Jump Street and 2009’s Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs. The first full-length LEGO film, which is still in production, is based on a story by Lord, Miller, Dan Hageman and Kevin Hageman. LEGO 3D will be produced by Dan Lin and Roy Lee.

Well I guess if Battleship gets turned into a movie, building blocks are next. Lets hope Michael Bay directs Connect Four in a few years.
I imagine a scene where 2 Lego people want to build a house. A Lego truck pulls up and dumps out a pile of bricks & throws the people an instruction book. They follow step by step and put their house togther. Of course since men are shown to be stupid, when the house is about done, they notice an extra brick. That dummy husband skipped a step & now they have to partially pull their house apart to get that brick placed where it should go. Of course they starve to death because their fridge is just a couple of stacked bricks with a fridge door sticker stuck to the side.

Pushed up 3 weeks to Feb 7th, 2014. Exciting I know.
The CGI-animated 3D film originally was slotted for February 28, 2014, but now will open three weeks earlier on February 7. Morgan Freeman, Elizabeth Banks, Chris Pratt and Will Arnett will voice characters in Lego, about an ordinary Lego mini-figure, mistakenly thought to be the extraordinary MasterBuilder, is recruited to join a quest to stop an evil Lego tyrant from gluing the universe together. Phil Lord and Christopher Miller (21 Jump Street) direct the Warner Bros tentpole, wrote the script and share story credit with Dan Hageman and Kevin Hageman. Dan Lin and Roy Lee are producing.
To its credit, it's been a while since I've seen a movie about a bad guy wanting to glue the universe together.

If you've ever been to any of the Legoland centers, they have a theater where you can watch one of two 3D short films. The one we saw just a few weeks ago was a "sword and sorcery" type about a blacksmith and an evil wizard and it was quite frankly pretty good. There were some gimmicky 3D scenes, but it was overall a fun little story. If they can pull off a similar showing for the movie, it should be fun.
