The Warner Bros slate of Lego movies will see us getting Lego Ninjago in 2016, The Lego Batman Movie in 2017 and The Lego Movie 2 in 2018. Phil Lord and Chris Miller, who wrote and directed this year's The Lego Movie, are involved with the last two, and in the case of The Lego Batman Movie, they're serving as producers, with Chris McKay directing.

The pair have been chatting about what to expect from the film, which will see Will Arnett back on voicing duties as Batman. "Rest assured", Phil Lord told Empire, "every era of Batman filmmaking will be acknowledged".

19 November 2014 11:38 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

One of the most popular elements of this year’s widely successful The Lego Movie was Will Arnett’s Batman. So popular was he that he’s getting his own spin-off movie in 2017. Speaking out the movie to Empire, Phil Lord and Chris (who will serve as producers on the movie) gave some insights as to what we can expect.

“Rest assured, every era of Batman filmmaking will be acknowledged,” Lord said.

“There have been so many interpretations of Batman and there is so much to play with there,” Miller added. “There are 40 versions of his origin story alone.”

Lord and Miller will return to direct The Lego Movie 2, which they have promised will feature more female characters.

Chris McKay, who served as a writer on The Lego Movie, will direct the Lego Batman spin-off with Seth Grahame-Smith (Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter). Before that, Warner Bros. will be releasing »

19 November 2014 11:37 AM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Last month, Warner Bros. announced that they'll be developing a Lego Batman spinoff film, which is being directed by Chris McKay, who was the animation supervisor on The Lego Movie. There weren't really any details revealed for the film, but Will Arnett is set to reprise his role as the voice of the Dark Knight.

The Lego Batman Movie Will Acknowledge “Every Era Of Batman Filmmaking”

17 November 2014 9:46 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The Lego Movie is one of the best films of the year, bursting with imagination and colorful characters, so you can understand our excitement to watch Warner Bros. expand that animated universe in the coming years. The studio certainly isn’t resting on its laurels with the property – by 2019, we’ll have seen Lego Ninjago, The Lego Batman Movie and The Lego Movie 2. Recently, during an Empire interview, The Lego Movie writer-directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller revealed some details about upcoming titles in Warner’s Lego-verse.

Specifically, Miller noted that The Lego Batman Movie will add to the Caped Crusader’s cinematic legacy by putting a Lego spin on all of the past big-screen incarnations of the character. That’s right – everything from the classic Adam West cartoon up through Christian Bale’s garbling-marbles take on the character is fair game for director Chris McKay and his scribe »

Oscar producers hire 'The Flash' producer, 'Dark Shadows' writer for telecast

14 November 2014 11:05 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

In 2009, the Internet went crazy over a rumor that Neil Patrick Harris would play The Flash in a big screen "Justice League" movie. That didn’t happen — Ezra Miller got the job and Harris settled with voicing the character in a direct-to-dvd animated film. But now it’s looking like "Gone Girl" costar could finally get a superheroic boost from the team behind CW’s "The Flash." They’ll be feeding Harris his lines when he takes on hosting duties for the 87th Academy Awards. Producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron announced that writer, producer and director Greg Berlanti joins the team as head writer for his first Oscars telecast. The name should be familiar to anyone absorbed in comic book movie/TV sagas; Berlanti’s writing credits include the television series “The Flash,” “Arrow,” “Everwood” and “Dawson’s Creek,” and the feature films “Wrath of the Titans” and “Green Lantern. »

Oscar Producers Tap Greg Berlanti as Head Writer for ABC Telecast

14 November 2014 10:31 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Oscarcast producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron have tapped showrunner-director Greg Berlanti to lead the writing team for the 2015 telecast on ABC.

Berlanti will steer the writing along with “Arrow” and “The Flash” showrunner Andrew Kreisberg. Michael Green, another Berlanti associate, and Seth Grahame-Smith are also on board as writers for the Feb. 22 live telecast. Hamish Hamilton will direct for a third time.

The Oscars change writing teams every year. It’s unusual to have scripters from drama series in the mix, though. In the past, scribes have come from the world of feature films, live-event telecasts and comedy shows like “Saturday Night Live.” In addition, the host — this year, Neil Patrick Harris — always brings in a team to write special material.

Meron announced the production team on Friday in a tweet.

This is the third time as producers for Zadan and Meron, and they have recruited several colleagues from »

42 upcoming comic book movies - and when to expect them

5 November 2014 9:30 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

When’s that comic book movie coming out, with the ant-sized man? This and all similar questions answered in our comic book movie calendar.

Comic book fans of the world - were you planning on spending your spare cash on anything other than cinema visits and DVD box-sets for the next six years? Well tough, because Hollywood has other ideas.

Ever since Bryan Singer’s X-Men movie jump-started the comic book movie trend in 2000 (building on the stellar work of Richard Donner and Tim Burton in the decades prior), Fox, Sony, Warner Bros., Disney and Marvel Studios have all been repeatedly cashing-in on the resurgent popularity of capes, cowls and anything ending in ‘Man’.

Now, the sheer size of the comic book movie-making world has reached a critical mass. There are now seven such films (at least) slated for every year between 2016 and 2019. There’s also a few confirmed for 2020 already, »

'Something Wicked This Way Comes' Adds 'Walking Dead' Writer

30 October 2014 7:14 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Disney has hired screenwriter David Johnson (Wrath of the Titans) to pen the screenplay for their Something Wicked This Way Comes remake.

Based on the Ray Bradbury novel of the same name, Something Wicked This Way Comes centers on a teenage boy whose sleepy Midwestern hometown becomes overrun by a carnival, with a mysterious leader who can grant any wish, at a sinister cost. We first reported on the project back in March, when Seth Grahame-Smith signed on to make his directorial debut.

Disney previously adapted the novel into the 1983 fantasy adventure Something Wicked This Way Comes, which starred Jason Robards, Jonathan Pryce and Diane Ladd.

Seth Grahame-Smith is also producing alongside his KatzSmith Productions partner David Katzenberg. It isn't known when production may begin at this time.

David Johnson's big-screen credits include Orphan and Red Riding Hood, and he has also written for TV shows such as The Walking Dead »

Disney's 'Something Wicked This Way Comes' brings on the writer of 'Orphan'

30 October 2014 5:45 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Ray Bradbury's "Something Wicked This Way Comes" is not just one of his finest works, it's one of the best books I've ever read, and at this point in my life, that includes thousands of titles. What makes "Wicked" so great isn't just the story, although it's got a great plot, and it's not just the language, although Bradbury ladles it on like a master. It is the way "Wicked" captures not only the feeling in the air as Halloween approaches, but the way he observes and dissects human behavior so carefully and completely. Here's a paragraph from the book that just makes me swoon. “Why love the boy in a March field with his kite braving the sky? Because our fingers burn with the hot string singeing our hands. Why love some girl viewed from a train bent to a country well? The tongue remembers iron water cool on some long lost noon. »
