There are already three new LEGO movies coming out in the next few years, and we're about the get a fourth.  

Jason Segel is to write and direct Billion Brick Race alongside Iron Man 3 writer Drew Pearce.  Segel helped write the Muppets film that he starred in in 2011, so his foray into the world of LEGO isn't terribly out of character.  Billion Brick Race will follow Ninjago in 2016, The Lego Batman Movie in 2017 and The Lego Movie 2 in 2018, but no release date has been set.

Sony's just picked up a bunch of domains related to Attack on Titan, spreading rumors that they're making a movie out of the massively popular anime:

  • attackonthetitan-movie.com
  • attackonthetitan-movie.net
  • attackonthetitan.com
  • attackonthetitan.net
  • attackonthetitanmovie.com
  • attackonthetitanmovie.net
  • attackonthetitanthemovie.com
  • attackonthetitanthemovie.net

Currently, these domains redirect to the Sony Pictures website, and it seems entirely likely that Sony is poised to start working on an American adaptation of Attack on Titan, or at least starting talks to that end.  There are two Japanese Attack on Titan films currently in the works (they'll be out later this year), but in all likelihood they won't make it to the US and we'll get saddled with a questionable Westernized adaptation (lookin' at you, Ghost in the Shell).
