Buzz about the Lego Movie is gaining momentum, and with director/writers Phil Lord and Chris Miller, the guys behind “Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs” at the helm you know it’s going to be a fun ride.
MTV caught up with the pair at a junket for their latest film 21 Jump Street (definitely not a kid-friendly film!) and asked some serious questions about their script for the film.
We had already heard about the 80% Live action/20% animation element but MTV asked them to expand on the nature of the story.
Lucky for us, they did!
This is Phil Lord’s take on their script:
[quote]”It is the story of basically a young man who doesn’t have a creative bone in his body and has to always build things from the instructions. He’s an ‘instructions worker.’ In the Lego city, they build buildings, and it turns out in this universe it’s illegal to build apart from the instructions,” Lord said.
“So what he finds out is that he’s actually descendant from these like super creative Jedi-type people who are called ‘Master Builders’ and he has been charged with saving the universe from being frozen together by an evil bad guy, so over the course of the movie he has to unlearn all of that lame-o, uncreative stuff and learn how to build without all of the instructions in order to save the universe.”[/quote]
I would say I can’t wait but I think it is still a long way off so…I’ll keep the site updated in the mean time 🙂
