Dateline Hollywood is reporting a fantastic new turn in the partnership between LEGO, TT Games and LucasArts, tapping into the AFOL (Adult Fan of LEGO) market.
Hollywood – Looking to expand its lineup of Lego-based videogames beyond those aimed at kids, LucasArts announced a series of new titles based on several of the year’s most acclaimed films, including numerous Oscar winners. "Lego There Will Be Blood," "Lego No County for Old Men," "Lego Juno" and "Lego Four Months, Three Weeks and Two Days" will all come out later this year.

In addition, LucasArts announced it will be dipping into the Hollywood vaults to produce games with the adorable Lego aesthetic based on numerous classic films. They will include "Lego Fatal Attraction," "Lego Hotel Rwanda," "Lego Silence of the Lambs," and "Lego Annie Hall," which are in development for 2009 release.
Let's hope they also get the rights to "Lego Caligula".

    In all seriousness, I would TOTALLY buy a Lego There Will Be Blood game. Just as long as I can throw Lego milkshakes at preachers.

    It's not April 1 and Mojo is posting a spoof article as fact? Man, the place really has gone downhill.

    They certainly know which ones to pick. I say Lego Spinal Tap; or maybe Lego Superbad? That one was critically acclaimed, it must be so much fun. Do I get to play as the pregnant woman, or do I play as her nerdy boyfriend? Does this mean I'll have to sacrifice being Eddie Riggs, heavy metal badass roadie, for being a Lego pregnant teenager? It's, it's so hard. I can't choose.

    Obviously you use the 'drop-in-drop-out' feature to switch characters on the fly.

    Yeah, and maybe we'll be able to use the legos to build RELATIONSHIPS and make even more grotesquely-figured pregnant lego teenagers and then breast-feed the little babies. I've always wanted to be a pregnant woman. Then my baby must put on the lotion or else it gets the hose.

    As a rule I hate people on the internet who go around correcting other people's spelling or grammar as if that somehow makes them a better person. The purpose of language is to communicate which you have clearly succeded in doing.

    With all that said the word "legos" hurts my eyes. It's just lego dammit!
