The Universe Hates You: Grab Bag Edition
Come on Warner, at least let us smoke a post-Nolan cigarette before you hustle another director in the door.
Second, there is a Lego movie.
I'll just let that sink in for a moment.
Here's the plot summary from SlashFilm:
LEGO follows Emmet, an ordinary, rules-following, perfectly average LEGO minifigure who is mistakenly identified as the most extraordinary person and the key to saving the world. He 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 underprepared.
Yes, there is a Lego film. And it is using up part of the lives of Will Arnett, Elizabeth Banks, Chris Pratt and Morgan Freeman.
I'm just going to leave the idea of this film's existence for you to ponder, sans comment.
Finally, Eddie Murphy is shopping around a Beverly Hills Cop television series with Shawn Ryan (creator of "The Shield"). Murphy will guest star occasionally as the chief of police and father of the protagonist. Because nothing says raunchy '80s R-rated comedy like network television.
No word yet on whether Gerald Ford will make a guest appearance.
That coffee does taste a little grainy, doesn't it?
