The latest adaptation of the Lego toy line is expected to feature ninjas, samurais, and senseis facing off dragons, snake men and evil warlord.

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".

The Hageman brothers also wrote Cartoon Network's hit animated series "Ninjago: Masters of Spinjitzu" which was based on the Lego toy line.

"The Lego Movie" is scheduled to arrive in theaters on February 7, 2014. Will Arnett will voice Batman, Jonah Hill will voice Green Lantern, and Channing Tatum will voice Superman. Joining the cast is Chris Pratt, Morgan Freeman, Elizabeth Banks, Liam Neeson and Will Ferrell.
