Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 02.03.2014
A new film is already in the works...
The LEGO Movie joins that club of films which had a sequel developed before the first entry was even released. The Wrap reports that Jared Stern (The Internship, The Watch) has been hired to provide a script for a sequel to the film. He also added "story material" to Wreck-It Ralph, The Princess and The Frog and Bolt.
The firs film opens on Friday and features voice work by Chris Pratt, Will Ferrell, Elizabeth Banks, Will Arnett, Nick Offerman, Alison Brie, Liam Neeson and Morgan Freeman. it follows Emmet, an ordinary, rules-following, perfectly average LEGO minifigure who is mistakenly identified as the most extraordinary person and the key to saving the world. He is drafted into a fellowship of strangers on an epic quest to stop an evil tyrant, a journey for which Emmet is hopelessly and hilariously underprepared.
