Ferrell, Neeson to voice ‘Lego’

Offerman, Brie also added to cast

Will Ferrell, Liam Neeson, Nick Offerman and Alison Brie have joined the voice cast of Warner Bros.’ “Lego.”

Chris Pratt, Elizabeth Banks, Will Arnett and Morgan Freeman have been set previously for “Lego” a hybrid of 3D animation and live action that’s been set for a Feb. 7, 2014, release from Warners and Village Roadshow.

Ferrell will voice President Business, the adversary of the main character Emmet — an ordinary, rules-following Lego minifigure (voiced by Pratt) who is mistakenly identified as the key to saving the world. Neeson stars as the voice of the president’s powerful henchman, known as Bad Cop. Offerman will voice a craggy, swaggering pirate obsessed with revenge on President Business and Brie plays a member of Emmet’s team with a powerful secret.

Phil Lord & Christopher Miller (“21 Jump Street,” “Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs”) are directing from their original screenplay. Story is by Dan Hageman & Kevin Hageman and Lord & Miller.

Village Roadshow is also producing.

Producers are Dan Lin and Roy Lee. It will be distributed by Warner Bros. and in select territories by Village Roadshow.

Studio greenlit “Lego” last year and tapped Oz vfx-toon house Animal Logic to do the animation. “Lego” has been in development at Warner Bros. since 2008, when the studio began working with the toymaker on a family comedy based on the popular building blocks.
