Will Ferrell and Liam Neeson join Lego movie

Nov 12 2012, 4:07am CST | by

Will Ferrell and Liam Neeson have joined the cast to voice the new Lego film 'The Piece Of Resistance'.

Will Ferrell and Liam Neeson have joined the Lego film.
The 'Elf' star and 'Taken' actor have signed on to voice characters in Phil Lord and Chris Miller's 3D animation movie - a cartoon adaptation of the popular children's toy - which is entitled 'Lego: The Piece Of Resistance'.
'Mad Men' actress Alison Brie and Nick Offerman are also set to be involved in the project, joining Chris Pratt, Elizabeth Banks and Morgan Freeman who signed up in August, Deadline.com reports.
The film's plot will focus on a character named Emmet (Pratt), whose ordinary life as a Lego minifigure is blown out of proportion after he is mistaken for the Master Builder - the most powerful person in the Lego world - and recruited by strangers who want to save it from the evil President Business (Ferrell) and his sidekick Bad Cop (Neeson).
Nick, who met directors Phil and Chris after starring in a scene for their film '21 Jump Street', is to play a swaggering pirate seeking revenge on the president and Brie is the secretive heroin helping Emmet.
The film is aiming for a February 2014 release.

The story is set in the very late 1960s when cheap counterculture films made big money. Meyer was the outlaw helmer of soft-core pulp films such as "Faster Pussycat, Kill, Kill" but wanted to make a legitimate studio film. At the time, 20th Century Fox was in desperate ne ...

TV critics seem to have reservations about NBC’s new comedy series Bad Judge. The single-camera comedy stars Kate Walsh as Rebecca Wright, a tough judge serving on the Los Angeles County Circuit Court, who’s private life is pretty wild.  In the comedy, created by Will Ferrell and Adam McKay, Wright  meets an eight-year-old boy whose parents she’d put in the hoosegow.

The LEGO Movie DVD Review: Building the Perfect Movie

Jun 17 2014 3:14pm CDT | Source: movie fanatic

The success and how bloody fantastic The LEGO Movie is should not have surprised anyone. Given that the film is from Phil Lord and Chris Miller (who just gave us those inspired 22 Jump Street quotes), there is nothing these two can't do. And making a movie, based on a popular building block toy, was clearly a labor of love that can now be seen by everyone because The LEGO Movie is out now on DVD, Blu-Ray and digital download. As ...
