Cancel the LEGO movie! It's a terrible idea

So the news is out, the Warner Bros. Lego movie has a pair of directors. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Phil Lord and Chris Miller, the team responsible for last year's Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs (review), will write and direct the still unnamed Lego movie. If you think a Lego movie is a bad idea, like I do, you'll be livid when you hear this.

The plot is being kept under wraps, but it will be an adventure in the Lego world mixing live action and animation.

We now know why those burgers fall from the sky. Flint Lockwood, a young scientist with daddy issues, is responsible.
