Deadline.com is reporting that Cartoon Network’s Adventure Time is heading to the big screen as it goes into development at Warner Bros. to produce a feature film which will be helmed by the winning combo of Chris McKay and Roy Lee.
McKay (one of the exec producers of The Lego Movie) was recently hired to direct The Lego Batman Movie at Warner Bros. and also was the genius behind Robot Chicken. Lee is producing The Lego Batman Movie and also produced Warner Bros.’ groundbreaking animated The Lego Movie along with Dan Lin. That film broke box office records when it bowed last year to $69M for the studio; it has since grossed a whopping $468.7M worldwide. Cartoon Networks Studios will be involved in the production as will Pendleton Ward, the show’s creator who will have some involvement in writing and producing the feature version.
