Warner Bros. announces they’ve run out of ideas
Remember those blocks you used to play with as a kid that hurt like hell when you stepped on them? Well you better, because Warner Brothers is making a movie based on them, and they’ve somehow gotten Will Ferrell and Liam Neeson to sign on to a film that’s essentially about bricks. Lego 3D, an animated film, is scheduled for release in February 2014. According to the Hollywood Reporter:
Ferrell will play President Business, a CEO who has a hard time balancing world domination and managing his own life. Neeson is the henchman, simply known as Bad Cop.
Really? So not only are you making a movie based on a building block, you couldn’t even bother to name the characters. ‘President Business’ and ‘Bad Cop’ are descriptions, they sound like the names you use as placeholders before you think of real, clever names.
I’m sure the general attitude at Warners was ‘anyone stupid enough to pay to see Lego 3D isn’t going to care about names.’
