"The Lego Movie" has revealed who will be the latest additions to its voice cast ensemble at San Diego Comic-Con. During the film's Saturday presentation hosted by Warner Bros., directors Phil Lord and Christopher Miller along with producer Dan Lin announced that Channing Tatum, Jonah Hill and Cobie Smulders would take part in it.
Tatum and Hill, who both teamed up in the buddy cop comedy "21 Jump Street", will lend their voices for Superman and Green Lantern respectively. As for Smulders who will reprise her role as Agent Maria Hill on Joss Whedon's "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.", she is tapped to voice Wonder Woman who finally makes a big-screen appearance though it's in LEGO form.
The animated pic centers on an ordinary LEGO minifigure named Emmet, who is mistakenly identified as the most extraordinary person and the key to saving the world. The rules-following boy 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 unprepared.
During the Comic-Con chat, Lord and Miller refused to give further details of other well-known LEGO figures that might show up in the movie. Asked about the LEGO Ninja Turtles voice cast, Lord jokingly answered, "Warners has a robot installed in our hearts and it'll explode if we tell you."
"The Lego Movie" will open in the U.S. on February 7, 2014.
