The wild and wacky journeys of Finn and Jake are heading to the big screen. Deadline has word that Cartoon Network's hit animated series Adventure Time is being developed by the channel's sister company Warner Bros. Pictures for a feature film adaptation. The Lego Movie co-director and producer Chris McKay and Roy Lee are producing the film, so it's bound to be great. For those who don't know, the series follows a 12-year old boy named Finn and his talking dog best friend Jake who go on endless quests to protect their beloved Land of Ooo, usually from the Ice King who is searching for his Princess Bubblegum. It's just as cooky as it sounds, and the series has fans young and old, not unlike cartoons such as "SpongeBob SquarePants" or "Ren & Stimpy" from the 90s. It sounds like the film is early in development, and we may not see it for awhile. »

Adventure Time Movie Incoming

28 February 2015 5:11 AM, PST | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

Debuting in 2010, Adveture Time has become one of the weirdest, subservise, and downright entertaining cartoons in recent memory, developing a huge fan base among teenagers and adults, as well as it's target kid audience. Following teenager Finn and his magical talking dog Jake (voiced by veteran John Dimaggio, better known as Bender from Futurama) as they get into numerous, utterly barmy adventures in the magical Land of Ooo (actually a post apocalyptic earth ravaged by nuclear war, just one of the many details of the shows hidden, dark mythology), it has become a ratings hit for Cartoon Network, and has seen a number of high profile celebrities lend their vocals, including Neil Patrick Harris, Mark Hamil, Ron Perlman, George Takei, Matthew Broderick, and Andy Samberg.

The Lego Movie 2 Has A New Director, Get The Details

24 February 2015 5:11 PM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

It's unfortunate that writer/directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller won't be back to help The Lego Movie 2 (presumably they'll be off to do some other bigger and more awesome stuff), but today new reports have confirmed that the filmmakers have found their replacements for the sequel. And it's a very interesting choice. Deadline has the scoop that The Lego Movie 2 will be directed by Rob Schrab - who will be making his feature directorial debut with the film. He will be working from a script that is being written by Phil Lord and Chris Miller, and that same duo will also be producing the movie alongside The Lego Movie's Dan Lin and Roy Lee. The new animated film isn't scheduled to be released by Warner Bros. until 2017, but given how complicated the animation style is, the project will need many years to digitally build the feature. »

'Community' Director Rob Schrab Taking Over 'The Lego Movie 2'

24 February 2015 4:50 PM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

There's been a change in directors for the developing sequel to last year's animated hit The Lego Movie. Nearly a year ago, Chris McKay, who essentially co-directed the original with Phil Lord & Chris Miller, was hired to be at the helm of The Lego Movie 2. But since then, Warner Bros. Pictures has done some shuffling. Previously, the sequel was dated for May 26th, 2017, but that's when the Lego Batman spin-off (which will now be directed by McKay instead) will arrive, which means The Lego Movie 2 will now arrive on May 25th, 2018. And following the release date change last fall, THR reports "Community" and "The Mindy Project" director Rob Schrab will now be at the helm of the animated film for his feature debut. Phil Lord & Chris Miller will still write the script for the film in addition to producing with the original film's producers Dan Lin and Roy Lee. »
