Will Arnett and Chris Pratt Cast in Lego Superhero Film
As if a Lego movie featuring Batman and Superman didn’t sound awesome enough, Lego: The Piece of Resistance is bringing Will Arnett and Chris Pratt on for a little vocal work.
According to Cinemablend, Chris Pratt, who won us over in Parks and Recreation, will fill the role of the film’s “Average-Joe” lead, Emmet. But even better is Arnett, who will voice the Dark Knight himself—though probably in a less depressing fashion. The film follows Emmet, who’s mistaken for being the “Master Builder” and pulled into a blocky journey to stop the universe from being glued together.
The animated film is being written and directed by duo Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, better known for their work on Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs. Lego: The Piece of Resistance hits theaters on Feb. 28, 2014.
