Heat Vision is reporting that Warner Bros. Pictures has hired Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs helmers Phil Lord and Chris Miller to write and direct the LEGO movie.
Based on the popular building blocks, the movie will mix live action and animation. The studio is keeping the plot tightly under wraps, but it's described as an action adventure set in a LEGO world.
Dan Lin and Roy Lee are producing and LEGO's Jill Wilfert is executive producing.
The duo "prepared a presentation that not only had to pass muster with Warners brass but also with execs from Lego, which is extremely protective with its toys and brand and had a significant hand in the process," adds the trade.
Lord and Miller are currently developing the 21 Jump Street movie and plan on doing LEGO after that.
