Cast additions to Lego: The Piece Of Resistance
An already impressive cast gets even better as four more are added to Phil Lord and Chris Miller's Lego movie.
Phil Lord and Chris Miller, directors of the magnificent Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs and 21 Jump Street, are currently busy at work on the long-mooted animated Lego movie, which is entitled The Piece Of Resistance. It's a film that already boasts an impressive voice cast. But now? That cast has got even better, with some great new additions.
In the film, Chris Pratt plays Emmet, a run of the mill Lego guy, whose life is changed when he's identified as the Master Builder. As such, he's recruited by a band of strangers looking to save the world from the evil President Business and his henchman, Bad Cop.
Will Ferrell will bring his understated vocal talents to President Business, then, and Liam Neeson will play the role of Bad Cop. If those two additions weren't enough, Ron Swanson himself, Nick Offerman, will play a pirate who's driven mad by revenge and Community's Alison Brie will play part of the team helping Emmet. They join the likes of Will Arnett, Morgan Freeman and Elizabeth Banks.
The film is scheduled for release in 2014, and we're quite excited about it.
