LEGO movie on the way

Just when you thought that every element of your childhood had already been ransacked, misused and regurgitated on the big screen, Hollywood announces a further blow to your youth.

Warner Bros have revealed that they are developing a LEGO movie. It'll be a live action-animation hybrid that's set in a world of LEGO but features real people. This all means that should you choose to endure all 90 minutes, it might give you quite a headache.

Reassuringly, it'll be written and directed by Phil Lord and Chris Miller, who created the pretty awesome Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs. Less reassuringly, we still don't get the point of it all.

But in an industry that's working on movie versions of the board game Battleship, the Magic 8 Ball, the View-Master and that serviette you threw away in 1987, does there need to be a point?

The film will start casting in January and aim for a release in 2014.
