Casting is underway on The LEGO Batman Movie, the highly anticipated spin-off from The LEGO Movie. Will Arnett will reprise his role as Bruce Wayne/Batman, while Michael Cera was recently cast as Robin. Now, it looks like we have our animated Clown Prince of Crime.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, The Hangover and Birdman actor Zach Galifianakis is in final negotiations to voice The Joker in The LEGO Batman Movie. Of course, Joker needs no introduction – he is Batman’s arch nemesis, and arguably the greatest comic book villain of all time.
The LEGO Batman Movie will be directed by Chris McKay, from a script by Seth Grahame-Smith. Chris Miller, Phil Lord, Dan Lin and Roy Lee are producing. The film is set to hit theaters February 10th, 2017. Stay tuned for more news as we have it.
