Much like the blocks it’s based on, the title of the first feature length Lego movie has been assembled and reassembled multiple times. Warner Bros. has finally settled on a title and even constructed it out of its own subject. The film is now called The Lego Movie, and a logo has been revealed along with a contest fans can compete in to get their own video in the film.
After the jump, check out the logo in hi-res and read all about the contest. The movie, directed by Phil Lord & Christopher Miller, features the voices of Chris Pratt, Will Ferrell, Elizabeth Banks, Liam Neeson, Will Arnett, Nick Offerman, Alison Brie and Morgan Freeman. Read More »

Some small progress on Phil Lord and Christopher Miller‘s Jonah Hill-ified 21 Jump Street movie, as Columbia Pictures have formally tagged Friday August 5th 2011 for it’s Stateside release. That leaves quite a healthy window, so production won’t necessarily be starting too soon, but it’s a commitment. Well, at least as much of a commitment as when they announced Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man 4 for May 5th 2011.

He’s also still talking up the line that the film will be a blend of comedy and action, and won’t exist to make fun of the original show, which helped launch Johnny Depp to stardom. Read More »

Jonah Hill’s upcoming 21 Jump Street remake is getting weirder (and more awesome) the more we hear about it. First, Hill mentioned that he wanted to make a “Bad Boys meets John Hughes” R-rated action film, and now we’ve learned that Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs directors Phil Lord and Christopher Miller are in negotiations to direct. I personally loved the heck out of Cloudy, and have firmly committed myself to following Lord and Miller’s careers very closely. The duo also created the MTV animated series Clone High, and have written and co-exec produced for How I Met Your Mother. Basically, they rank high on the scales of awesome.
