Elizabeth Banks and Morgan Freeman have signed on to lend their voices to the upcoming LEGO movie.

There aren't many details on the animated LEGO film; we don't even have a title as of yet. Chris Pratt and Will Arnett are also attached to lend their pipes to the family adventure as well. I wonder who else they will get for the cast. They already have four greats.

Here's the plot: "an ordinary Lego mini-figure, mistakenly thought to be the extraordinary MasterBuilder, is recruited to join a quest to stop an evil Lego tyrant from gluing the universe together. Freeman will voice a character called Vitruvius and they will join Chris Pratt and Will Arnett in the film. Latter reportedly plays a Lego version of Batman."

It won't be too shabby since Phil Lord and Christopher Miller (21 JUMP STREET, CLOUDY WITH A CHANCE OF MEATBALLS) are directing. The film is set to release in theaters on February 28, 2014.

Great casting news; Morgan Freeman's voice in anything is terrific. I think it was once said the best movie death would be Clint Eastwood shooting you with his Magnum while Morgan Freeman narrated over it. Philalva77 has a good point in bringing up the LEGO licensed video games, those are fantastic and I'm having so much fun playing LEGO Batman 2 with a friend. The style of humour is irreverent, refreshing and not at all mean-spirited and also plays around a lot with the concept of building

I wonder what the main plot for the film would be; I'd be interested to see how they tie it together.

21 Jump Street was great & real surprise, but does this mean they won't be directing the sequel now? I'm down for a legos movie though, those video games they do are great.
