The producers of the 3D computer animated adventure “LEGO”, formerly known as “LEGO: The Piece of Resistance”, have officially signed Will Arnett, Elizabeth Banks, Chris Pratt and Morgan Freeman to lead the voice cast.
Phil Lord and Christopher Miller (“21 Jump Street,” “Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs”) are directing from a script they penned.
The film, the first-ever full length theatrical LEGO movie, 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.
Chris Pratt ("Moneyball") stars as Emmet. Oscar® winner Morgan Freeman ("Million Dollar Baby") and Elizabeth Banks ("The Hunger Games," Emmy nominee for "30 Rock"), will star as two of Emmet’s fellow travelers: Vitruvius, an old mystic; and tough-as-nails Lucy, who mistakes Emmet for the savior of the world and guides him on his quest. She also calls upon the mysterious Batman, a LEGO® minifigure voiced by Will Arnett (Emmy nominee, "30 Rock"), with whom she shares a history.
Warner Bros. and Village Roadshow Pictures are offering fans an opportunity to design a vehicle in the film.
