Shawn Levy in Talks to Direct Minecraft Movie

16 October 2014 12:51 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Back in February, we reported that Warner Bros. had acquired the rights to adapt the ridiculously popular video game Minecraft into a film with Roy Lee (The Lego Movie) producing alongside Jill Messick (Mean Girls).  The open-world game is from Swedish indie developers Mojang Ab, and allows players to create a world with textured cubes.  Different modes have the players either fighting for survival or they can simply build away without any restraints aside from a lack of rounded corners. I don't understand Minecraft at all, which makes me feel super-old, but Warner Bros. thinks Night at the Museum director Shawn Levy might have a good take on the material.  Hit the jump for more. Deadline reports that Levy is in talks to direct Minecraft, a franchise that could be lucrative due to brand-name recognition, and more importantly, the success of The Lego Movie, which also took blocks and turned »

Warner Bros. has officially announced a massive expansion of the Studio's DC Comics-branded movie universe with plans to release a slate of at least ten movies -- as well as additional stand-alone Batman and Superman films -- from 2016 through 2020, expanding the DC universe very much in the same way Marvel has developed their Avengers universe, which expanded further with Guardians of the Galaxy earlier this year. Here's the official plans for future Warner Bros. and New Line Cinema releases of DC Comics movies, not including said stand-alone Batman and Superman films: Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice on March 25, 2016 Suicide Squad directed by David Ayer (Fury) on August 5, 2016 Wonder Woman starring Gal Gadot on June 23, 2017 Justice League Part One directed by Zack Snyder and starring Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill and Amy Adams on November 17, 2017 The Flash starring Ezra Miller (We Need to Talk About Kevin) on March 23, 2018 Aquaman starring »

Warner Bros. To Release A Trio Of Lego Movies Over The Next Four Years

15 October 2014 10:37 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Warner Bros. served up all kinds of awesome during the company’s Time Warner Investors Day earlier today. First up, we had the shotgun blast of superhero-related release dates, followed by news regarding the Harry Potter spin-off, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. Now, though, WB has detailed franchise plans for its lucrative series of Lego-branded films.

Following up on this year’s acclaimed The Lego Movie, Warner Bros. now plans to release three films in the series across the next four years. Kicking things off will be the long rumoured ninja-themed spinoff, Ninjago, which is due to hit theaters in the fall of 2016. Hot on the heels of Ninjago will be the recently-announced Lego Batman animated flick — a project that looks to be fast-tracked at Warner Bros. ahead of a 2017 release. This then paves the way for a direct follow-up to Chris Miller and Phil Lord’s film, »

Warner Bros. Unveils Lego Film Franchise Release Dates: Ninjago Coming in 2016 Followed by Lego Batman Movie in 2017 and Lego Movie 2 in 2018

15 October 2014 10:25 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

In addition to all the DC release dates, Warner Bros. also unveiled its plan for the Lego film franchise.  Here are the official release dates at a glance: Charlie Bean’s Ninjago will arrive in 2016; it’ll be produced by Dan Lin, Roy Lee, Phil Lord and Chris Miller. A Chris McKay-directed The Lego Batman Movie will be released in 2017. The Lego Movie 2 will hit theaters in 2018. Hit the jump for more on the Lego film franchise. It’s no wonder Warner Bros. is enacting such an ambitious plan for the Lego movies.  The first film dropped back in February, held the #1 spot at the box office for three weeks and went on to accumulate $468.1 million globally, which is huge considering the film cost just $60 million to make. It was recently reported that McKay would direct The Lego Movie 2, but now that he’s firmly attached to The Lego Batman Movie, »

DC Universe Movie Slate Revealed, Including Justice League, Wonder Woman & Green Lantern

15 October 2014 9:56 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

This summer, Warner Bros. set aside release dates for a batch of unknown DC films in an effort to create a shared cinematic universe for its superheroes, similar to Marvel and Disney’s comic book structure. Since that time, fans have wondered which superheroes will get their own films and in what order they will be released and now the wait is over, as Warner Bros. has confirmed the titles to fill those empty release dates.

Here’s the list of 10 confirmed DC films in the order that they will come out:

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice,” directed by Zack Snyder (2016) “Suicide Squad,” directed by David Ayer (2016) “Wonder Woman,” starring Gal Gadot (2017) “Justice League Part One,” directed by Zack Snyder, with Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill and Amy Adams reprising their roles (2017) “The Flash,” starring Ezra Miller (2018) “Aquaman,” starring Jason Momoa (2018) “Shazam” (2019) “Justice League Part Two,” directed by Zack Snyder (2019) “Cyborg, »

Why a Paul Feig-directed all-female Ghostbusters is a bad idea

13 October 2014 6:35 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Anthony Stokes on why a Paul Feig-directed all-female Ghostbusters is a bad idea…

Let’s be honest… Ghostbusters hasn’t been good since the original movie. Ghostbusters II is the poster child for subpar mediocre sequels and there’s been talks for years about doing a third movie. My ears perked up when it was rumored Phil Lord and Chris Miller (21 Jump Street, The Lego Movie) would be directing, but since then Paul Feig (Bridesmaids, The Heat) has signed on to helm an all-female reboot of the franchise. In my opinion, this is a bad idea.

I’ve noticed a string of projects that seem to be getting praised for no other real reason than having a mostly female cast. Orange Is the New Black’s second season was significantly weaker than the first, but it still got the same amount of praise, if not more so. Bridesmaids is »

‘Lego Batman’ Is the Perfect Counterpoint to WB’s DC Universe

13 October 2014 12:00 PM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Time to rip off this Band-Aid: The Lego Movie 2 is being postponed. I know how you must feel — take as much time as you need to fume, or sob, or ragepunch a hole through a few fully built Lego sets. According to The Hollywood Reporter, The Lego Movie 2 is being pushed into some shadowy date beyond 2017, because — and here’s the good news (our anti-Band-Aid) — their priority is now a Lego Batman movie. Feel better? You probably should, because Warner Bros. is doting on Lego Batman with the same care and devotion it had for The Lego Movie 2 (unlike the solely-to-sell-toys-no-adult-can-pronounce Lego Ninjago spin-off). It’ll be directed by Chris McKay, animation supervisor on the first Lego Movie, and produced by Lego wonderpair Phil Lord and Chris Miller. This, as you may recall, was the same setup for The Lego Movie 2. Will Arnett is set to return as cinema’s most dickheaded version »

Not satisfied with adding him to the Man Of Steel franchise, Warner is set to put Batman to work once more, with THR reporting that the studio has given the green light to a Lego Movie spin-off featuring the Dark Knight. According to the report, Will Arnett is already on board to voice the character for a second time, with The Lego Movie’s animation supervisor Chris McKay set to direct.

The Lego Movie Batman Character Spin-Off Film in the Works

12 October 2014 11:05 AM, PDT | TheHDRoom | See recent TheHDRoom news »

He's Batman alright, and apparently Warner Bros. is so smitten with The Lego Movie incarnation of the Dark Knight that they're giving the caped crusader his own Lego Batman movie. No Bat pun required.

The Hollywood Reporter is citing inside sources that claim The Lego Movie animation supervisor Chris McKay is set to direct the Lego Batman movie with Seth Grahame-Smith writing the screenplay.

McKay was originally attached to direct The Lego Movie 2 and that film was slotted into a 2017 release date. If McKay is indeed jumping to Lego Batman and that project is taking precedent at Warner Bros., expect Lego Batman in 2017 and The Lego Movie sequel in 2018 or later.

The Lego Movie Batman voice actor Will Arnett will return and bring the brooding, self-absorbed superhero to life once again as the headline character. There are no story details available at this time so it's unknown whether the »

Lego Batman Scores His Own Spin-Off Movie

12 October 2014 10:54 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Chris Pratt's Emmet may have been the star and focus of The Lego Movie, but one of the undoubted highlights of this year’s animated success was the arrogant, self-satisfied and, most importantly, orphan-status-obsessed Batman, voiced by Will Arnett. Warner Bros. has taken note of the attention and is pushing a Bat-centric spin-off into production.According to The Hollywood Reporter, Lego Movie animation supervisor and co-editor Chris McKay is switching his focus from the in-development Lego Movie sequel to concentrate instead on getting Batman ready for his close-up in a potential 2017 release slot. Dark Shadows script man Seth Grahame-Smith is in charge of putting words in Arnett’s mouth, as the actor will reprise his none-more-gravelly delivery for the new film.Nothing is known about the plot for this one yet, but presumably it will once again see Batman act like he's the coolest guy in the world and »

Lego Batman Spinoff on the Way, Because Duh

11 October 2014 11:56 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

I was a fan of The Lego Movie earlier this year, and it's safe to say most audiences were, too. The film arrived in the February doldrums and surprised pretty much everybody in the moviegoing community en route to grossing $468 million at the worldwide box office. If you asked me to name my favorite thing about the movie, aside from its production design, I'd probably say Batman's comic relief, and I think others would answer similarly, so it makes sense Warner Bros. has now put a Lego Batman spinoff on the fast track. It was announced in March that a sequel to The Lego Movie was in the works, with animation co-director and supervisor Chris McKay attached to direct and Warner eyeing a May 26, 2017 release date. However it now seems this Lego Batman spinoff is the studio's first priority in the Lego Cinematic Universe (boy, I hope that doesn't catch »

Warners Fast Tracks Batman Lego Movie

10 October 2014 6:30 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Warner Bros. Pictures has put a "Lego Batman" feature film spinoff on a fast track into production.

Will Arnett voiced the character in this year's "The Lego Movie" and stole many of the film's key scenes. As a result, this solo outing for the character is expected to take priority over the in-development "The Lego Movie" sequel.

It's also nabbing that film's director, Chris McKay, and potentially its release date as Warners recently moved "The Lego Movie 2" off its proposed May 26th 2017 release date. While they haven't officially slotted "Lego Batman" into that slot, the spin-off film is expected to score a 2017 release.

No word on what other cast members from "The Lego Movie" will appear in the spin-off. Phil Lord, Chris Miller, Roy Lee and Dan Lin are producing while Seth Grahame-Smith will pen the screenplay.

Batman To Get His Own 'Lego Movie' Spinoff

10 October 2014 4:00 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Batman is so popular that he's getting his own Lego movie. Warner Bros. is fast-tracking a spinoff of The Lego Movie based on the Caped Crusader. Will Arnett will be returning to voice the character.

The Lego Movie is still set for a sequel, however, the studio plans to hold off on said sequel and get Chris McKay to jump aboard the spinoff instead. Seth-Grahame-Smith will write the script.

Warners is hoping to have the spinoff done in time for a 2017 release date. The Lego Movie 2, officially known as Ninjago, was due out September. 23, 2016, but will now be pushed back to a later date (most likely 2017 or later).

Roy Lee, Dan Lin, Phil Lord and Christopher Miller are all onboard as producers.

Batman was definitely the most popular character in the Lego Movie. Arnett's imitation of Christian Bale's raspy voice was spot-on, and he also had some of »
