Legos and Rampage Movies: This Week In Bad Source Material

Submitted by on November 25, 2011 – 11:34 amNo Comment

Recently, DrJays has reported on Hollywood’s plans to adapt board games and internet discussion threads. Now we learn of their latest unusual source material: plastic blocks and a video game that was just crushing things.

Variety reports that Warner Bros. has given the green light to its Lego movie, setting a release date for 2014. Details remain sketchy- ok, almost nonexistent- but Variety describes the flick as an “animated-live action hybrid” that will be an “action adventure set in the Lego world”. So, I’m guessing we’re gonna watch Selena Gomez or someone get sucked into the magic Legoland, and race to build a series of interchangeable structures to save the Legolandians.

At the same time, The Hollywood Reporter says New Line Cinema is adapting classic video game Rampage for the screen. For those of your who weren’t lucky enough to spend hours pumping quarters into this thing, let me breakdown the complex idea for you: the player is a giant monster, who must destroy cities and eat people until they are killed by soldiers. Got it?

What do you think? Can Hollywood turn these sources into real movies?
