Who loves Legos? And would like their creations to be in a movie?

Drew McWeeney, of Motion/Captured on HitFix, reports that there's a Lego movie in the works in which a minifig is the main character. It will be like Roger Rabbit in that all licensed Lego worlds will interact, much like the hodgepodge of sets strewn across any family's living room. McWeeney remarks, "The movie is interesting if only because of how many different intellectual properties they're playing with under one umbrella." Co-director Phil Lord describes it as, "[T]he only movie where Batman, Gandalf, and Dumbledore can all hang out with Morgan Freeman.""

The ReBrick contest is a chance for you to design something in Lego, shoot video of it, and then share that with the community via the official Lego site. The best video will actually end up in the movie.

You have until May 6, this Monday, to get your entry in. If I knew about it sooner I would have passed it along sooner. The movie itself will launch in February 2014. Even if you don't have time to make up your own stop-action movie, at least watch some of the amazingly creative entries already on the ReBrick website.

PS Of all things, I'm amused that minifigs can't high-five.
