The LEGO Movie On Track For $70 Million; Sequel Greenlit

Body

This weekend saw the opening of the highly anticipated flick, The LEGO Movie, and by all indications its a huge success as estimates have it coming in at close to a $70 million opening.

It seems The LEGO Movie was tracking so well previous to its release that Warner Bros. went ahead and greenlit a sequel.

Jared Stern and Michelle Morgan are set to write the script.

The LEGO Movie was most likely a guaranteed success as it brings a batch of favorite characters together on the big screen (Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, TMNT) and sports an all-star cast which includes Will Farrell, Liam Neeson, Morgan Freeman, Chris Pratt, Elizabeth Banks, Alison Brie, Will Arnett, Jonah Hill and Nick Offerman.

Synopsis:

The 3D computer animated adventure tells the story of Emmet, an ordinary, rules-following, perfectly average LEGO minifigure who is mistakenly identified as the most extraordinary person and the key to saving the world. He is drafted into a fellowship of strangers on an epic quest to stop an evil tyrant, a journey for which Emmet is hopelessly and hilariously underprepared.
