Although the idea of a LEGO movie has always seemed a bit odd, but the CG flick is moving forward with the news that Morgan Freeman and Elizabeth Banks have joined the voice cast of LEGO: The Piece of Resistance for 21 Jump Street and Cloudy With A Chance… directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller.
The film will be about Emmet (Chris Pratt), a LEGO figure who is mistaken for the one known as The Master Builder. He is chosen to help stop an evil force from gluing their entire land together. Morgan Freeman will play a character named Vitruvius, who also joins this team that includes LEGO versions of Batman (Will Arnett) and Superman (Channing Tatum). No details have been given for Elizabeth Banks’ character.
Phil Lord and Chris Miller will direct from a script they co-wrote with Kevin Hageman and Dan Hageman. (Source: Deadline)
