[Movies] Warner Bros. Weighing Options on Ninjago and Sequel to The LEGO Movie Posted by Jeffrey Harris on 02.19.2014
Which one will hit theaters first?
THR reports that a Warner Bros. greenlight committee is going to decide over the next few weeks whether to move forward on The LEGO Movie 2 and the new Ninjago movie and which film will hit theaters first. Dan Lin and Roy Lee, who produced The LEGO Movie, are also attached to Ninjago.
Warner Bros. reportedly only has the rights to Ninjago and one sequel for The LEGO Movie, after which the producers would be allowed to take the property elsewhere. However, Lin and Lee both have first-look deals at Warners and would likely sit out of any sequels for The LEGO Movie franchise after the first one.
LEGO's Ninjago franchise follows a group of mystical ninjas who battle skeleton armies, snake men and Lord Garmadon, an evil warlord who seeks to take over the world.
