SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA — NSW will be the production base for a new animated feature film based on Lego toys. Warner Bros. contracted Academy Award-winning Sydney animation studio Animal Logic to make the family entertainment comedy at Fox Studios Australia.

The NSW Government helped secure the production for the State’s film industry with assistance from NSW Trade & Investment’s State Investment Attraction Scheme. 

The production will see up to $48 million spent in NSW, and the film will employ over 200 people at its peak. The Lego film is being written and directed by Phil Lord and Chris Miller, who co-directed the 3D animated comedy Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs (2009). Chris McKay is serving as co-director, and Dan Lin and Roy Lee are producing. The film is scheduled for release in 2014 with Warner Bros. producing and distributing the film internationally.
