Australian Premiere: Special When Lit

Special When Lit is showing tonight, for the first time in Australia. This film, a UK/Australian production had its world premiere at the Raindance Film Festival in London a few months ago. There it was nominated for BEST DOCUMENTARY.

Sorry. Couldn’t resist.

But this is intersting.

“Warner Bros. is toying with plans to develop a movie around Lego. Scribes Dan and Kevin Hageman are penning the script for the family comedy that will mix live action and animation. Warners is keeping the plot tightly under wraps, but it’s described as an action adventure set in a Lego world.” (Variety)

Hope they get Spielberg involved somehow…
