Morgan Freeman has become the latest star to lend their voice to the new Lego film. He will star as one of the characters in the original 3D animated film which is currently in production and due for release in 2014. He is joining other stars who have already signed up such as Chris Pratt who will star as Emmet. Elizabeth Banks and Morgan Freeman will star as Emmet’s fellow travelers: Vitruvius who is an old mystic and character Lucy who is as tough-as-nails who mistakes Emmet for the savoir of the world and guides him on his quest.
Lucy also calls upon Batman, a minifigure who is going to be voiced by Arnett. It will be directed by Phil Lord and Christopher Miller’s original screen play – story by Dan Hageman & Kevin Hageman and Phil Lord & Christopher Miller – which was based on Lego construction toys. The film will incorporate some of the most popular lego figures and will introduce some new characters.
The Lego film is going to be produced by Dan Lin and Roy Lee. It will be distributed by Warner Bros. Picture, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company.
With all of these big names joining the Lego film, we wonder who will sign up next?
