'Looney Tunes' Movie 'Acme' Casts Steve Carell

27 August 2014 1:39 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Steve Carell is attached to star in Warner Bros.' Untitled Acme Warehouse Project, centering on the company featured in the Looney Tunes cartoon shorts.

No specific plot details have been revealed, but the Acme Corporation's products are used in the Looney Tunes shorts, most often by Wile E. Coyote, in his pursuit of the Road Runner. This movie will not focus on any of the Looney Tunes characters, and is being planned as a CGI/live-action hybrid. The project has been in development since 2010, when Dan Hageman and Kevin Hageman (The Lego Movie) sold their original pitch to Warner Bros.

Ashley Miller and Zack Stentz (X-Men: First Class) have signed on to write the screenplay, with Glenn Ficarra and John Requa in talks to direct. If a deal is finalized, the directors will reunite with Steve Carell, who starred in their 2011 romantic comedy Crazy Stupid Love. They also directed »

News

Still the highest grossing movie of the year in the Us is The Lego Movie, to which Warner Bros has already announced a big screen sequel. The Lego Movie 2 is due to land in cinemas on May 26th 2017.

Furthermore, it'll be directed by Charlie Bean (making his feature debut after some superb work on Tron: Uprising), with Dan Hageman and Kevin Hageman penning the script.

Oscars®: What’s up with the 2015 Awards Race: The early contenders so far

7 March 2014 1:52 PM, PST | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

I’m starting up with a new weekly series here at Hollywood News, one tentatively titled “What’s up with the 2015 Awards Race”. Once or twice a week, I’ll be looking at potential 2014 awards contenders, and for the inaugural piece today, I figured I’d cover some of the films that have already come out this year, including one notable release that’s beginning its theatrical run today. Future pieces will more specifically focus on one title in particular, completely with more of an in depth look at them, but today we’ll start off with a primer. I’ve got a quartet of films to discuss, though they all have various pros and cons to their potential candidacies, obviously. Consider this a template for what’s to come during the year, including a placeholder grade of either “likely contender”, “potential contender”, or “long shot contender” for each… The Grand Budapest Hotel »

'The Lego Movie' Sequel Gets Summer 2017 Release

21 February 2014 11:57 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

In the wake of The Lego Movie's massive box office success, Warner Bros. has issued a May 26, 2017 release date for The Lego Movie 2. The Lego Movie has earned just over $200 million worldwide, after just two weeks in theaters. As of now, The Lego Movie 2 doesn't have any direct competition, although the Untitled Marvel Project 2017 will hit theaters a few weeks earlier on May 5, 2017.

We reported earlier this month that Jared Stern (The Internship, The Watch) has been hired to write the screenplay for this sequel with another writer, who has now been identified as Michelle Morgan (Nancy Drew). Roy Lee and Dan Lin are producing, although it isn't clear which cast members are coming back for this follow-up. It also isn't known yet whether or not The Lego Movie directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller will be back at the helm.

A Lego Ninjago Movie Could Arrive Before The Lego Movie Sequel

20 February 2014 9:21 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

There’s no denying that Warner Bros. has struck gold with The Lego Movie, which is not only earning rave reviews but has just passed the $200 million mark at the global box office (which is pretty great considering the movie’s only been out about three weeks). The studio now has a hit franchise on their hands and a sequel has already been given the green light. Interestingly enough, however, WB now has a bit of a dilemma: with two Lego-centric movies currently in the works, which film do they release first?

Plans for a standalone film featuring the spinoff toy line Ninjago have been developing for a while now, and according to THR, WB must decide whether or not to build off of the momentum from The Lego Movie and move forward with its sequel, or fast-track the Ninjago film instead. The studio only has the rights to one Lego Movie sequel, »

Lego Ninjago Spin-Off Coming Before ‘The Lego Movie’ Sequel?

20 February 2014 5:08 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

While a sequel for Phil Lord and Chris Miller’s smash hit The Lego Movie is already in the works over at Warner Bros, we may see the world’s favourite building blocks hit the screen in another form before that project comes to fruition – in the form of the long-gestating Lego Ninjago movie, centred around the Danish toy company’s ninja-themed world.

Warner is currently deciding which film to go ahead with first, as they currently only hold the rights to one sequel or spin-off – so it’s a question of which they want to move ahead with more, against which is more likely to secure them the rights to further films. At the moment, producers Dan Lin and Roy Lee have the option to take future movies to other studios, but by committing to the Lego world with Ninjago, Warner can strengthen their relationship with Lego to ensure future films. »

"Lego Ninjago" Before "Lego Movie 2"?

19 February 2014 7:18 PM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

With the runaway success of "The Lego Movie," the fact that Warner Bros. Pictures wants a sequel is no surprise. Now though they've hit a minor snag.

Warners has to decide in the next few weeks whether to go forward with not just a "Lego Movie 2," but also a stand-alone "Lego Ninjago" spin-off movie. Dan and Kevin Hageman were hired to pen a script for the latter and began work in June last year.

Warners only has rights to one "Lego Movie" sequel and a Ninjago spin-off film at present, but the deadline to green light a Ninjago film, already extended from this past November, is coming up.

If they don't go through with a Ninjago film, Denmark-based Lego may not want to continue on with Warners for further films beyond the "Lego Movie" sequel.

If they do go through with it, it would strengthen the relationship between Warners and Lego. »

Lego Ninjago May Happen Before The Lego Movie Sequel

19 February 2014 1:24 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

With over $200 million in box office receipts worldwide, a sequel to The Lego Movie is already in the works. Warner Bros. hired Jared Stern to write the follow-up last month. The studio is also planning on expanding the Lego universe with the stand-alone Lego Ninjago movie. Dan Hageman and Kevin Hageman starting writing the script in June, although Warner Bros. currently faces a dilemma, as to which of these two movies will hit theaters first.

Warner Bros.' greenlight committee is currently tasked with deciding whether or not they will move forward with both projects at the same time. The studio previously had a November 2013 deadline from Lego regarding the Lego Ninjago project, but sources say the toy company has granted an extension. Lego Ninjago is an important project for the studio, since they currently only have rights to one sequel for The Lego Movie, and it is believed that »

Lego Ninjago Stand-Alone Movie Could Debut before The Lego Movie Sequel

19 February 2014 1:09 PM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

As The Lego Movie is nearing a $200 million worldwide box office with no signs of slowing, a sequel is pretty much a given.  However, a direct sequel to Phil Lord and Chris Miller's animated family adventure film might have to wait until another Lego sub-franchise has had its time to shine.  A little while back, we reported that Warner Bros. was developing a Ninjago film to feature the ninja-themed title world.  The studio will soon decide whether to move forward with both the Lego sequel and the stand-alone Ninjago films, along with which film will come first.  Hit the jump for more. As THR reports, Warner Bros. only has rights to one Lego sequel at the moment.  After that, the toy company and producers Dan Lin and Roy Lee are free to shop future installments to other studios.  One way to strengthen the relationship between Warners and Lego is »

The Lego Movie Has Passed $200 Million Mark At Box Office

19 February 2014 12:51 PM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Audiences are connecting with The Lego Movie in a big way, driving the first-ever full-length theatrical Lego adventure past $200 million in worldwide box office, less than two weeks after its record-breaking release. The announcement was made today by Warner Bros. Pictures.

The Lego Movie, from Warner Bros. Pictures, Village Roadshow Pictures and Lego System A/S, made its North American debut on Friday, February 7. It took in an opening weekend gross of $69.1 million, making it the largest February opening for any animated film and the largest opening for an animated Warner Bros. release. It has since gone on to earn a total of $146.3 million at the domestic box office, and still building.

The film has also launched its international engagements in a number of European, Asian, and Latin American markets, including the UK, Spain, Scandinavia, Hong Kong, Korea, Brazil and Mexico, earning $60.4 million to date, for a combined worldwide box office total of $206.7 million, »

The Next 'Lego Movie' Could Feature Ninjas

19 February 2014 11:00 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

With the runaway success of "The Lego Movie" -- $200 million globally, and counting -- it's no wonder that Warner Bros. is eager to make a follow-up right away.

But rather than continuing the adventures of hard-working construction worker Emmet, the next "Lego" movie might shift blocks and feature ninjas!

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the studio is considering greenlighting two new "Lego" movies -- a traditional sequel and a "Ninjago" spin-off -- and then deciding which to release first.

The "Ninjago" universe features ninjas, dragons, and mystical snakes, and has already spawned a Cartoon Network television series, "Ninjago: Masters of Spinjitzu." And while the property is more male-friendly, show creators Dan and Kevin Hageman say 30 percent of their audience is female. And as THR notes, the Chinese lore in "Ninjago" should help in that financially lucrative market.

Regardless of whether "Ninjago" is greenlit, it's clear Warner Bros. means to be »

New Blooper Reel for The Lego Movie

14 February 2014 2:00 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

After breaking records for Warner Bros. at the Us box office last weekend, grossing north of $69m. in its first three days, The Lego Movie is finally arriving on our shores today, giving a family-friendly alternative to the more romantic Valentine’s fare.

Adding to all the great things we’ve seen from the animated blockbuster already, Warner Bros. have released a new blooper reel, sure to be a favourite amongst the special features whenever the film hits the shelves later this year.

The 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 of course lends his voice as Emmet, the ordinary Lego mini-figure, »

The Lego Movie review: take the brick pill

12 February 2014 3:49 PM, PST | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

You’ve seen this all before — it’s Toy Story meets The Matrix — just not done in Legos. I’m “biast” (pro): love Phil Lord and Christopher Miller’s previous films

I’m “biast” (con): the trailers didn’t thrill me

I have played with the source material (and I love it)

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

It’s like the opposite of Lucy-with-the-football with filmmakers Phil Lord and Christopher Miller and me. This is the third time they’ve taunted me by dangling something so apparently crapariffic before my geeky yet ever optimistic movie-lovin’ eyes, and then failed to make me utterly despise what they did with it. First was Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, adapted from a very very short children’s picture book, and how do you plump that up into a decent flick? Yet they made magic. Then was 21 Jump Street, »

A Sequel To ‘The Lego Movie’ Is Being Developed

3 February 2014 4:07 PM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Warner Brothers looks to have a pretty sure thing on their hands with The Lego Movie, which hits theatres this Friday.

Lego looks like it will be a hit, with early forecasts predicting the movie will open at or above $40 million. The trailers have been great, and from what I’ve heard, adults are loving it just as much as kids. I know my wife and I are looking forward to taking our daughter this weekend.

It should come as no surprise that WB has already hired writers to pen a sequel.

Jared Stern (The Internship, Mr Popper’s Penguins) and Michelle Morgan (Girl Most Likely) will be writing the first draft of the script. Phil Lord and Christopher Miller (21 Jump Street), who wrote (along with Dan and Kevin Hageman) and directed the first film are not attached to the sequel at this time.
