From brick films to brick on film

LEGO has gone Hollywood or Hollywood is LEGO crazy. Either way, the result is apparently going to be a LEGO movie according to Variety.

Although the project has been underway for more than a year, details on the plot are scarce. The only description has been "an action adventure set in a LEGO world." If the producers and writers are smart, they'll take inspiration from the thousands of brick films (stop-motion animation featuring LEGO minifigs and scenes) on YouTube.

For inspiration, they could check out this short piece starring a James Bond-esque minifig or Beast -- a tale of science gone horribly wrong. There have been a number of great movies on the small screen for years, it will be exciting to see what happens on the big screen.
