Another big-screen adaptation of the popular Lego line of construction toys is in the works. Following "The Lego Movie" directed by "Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs" creators Phil Lord and Chris Miller, now Warner Bros. confirms "Ninjago" movie.
Charlie Bean, who directed Disney XD's animated series "Tron: Uprising", is tapped as the helmer of the animated project. Dan Lin and Roy Lee, who produce the upcoming "Lego Movie", are confirmed to serve as the producers alongside director duo Miller and Lord.
The pic is expected to include characters of ninjas, samurais, and senseis teaming up together to take down dragons, armies of snake men, and an evil warlord. The script is written by brother duo, Dan and Kevin Hageman, who receives "story by" credit in the "Lego Movie".
