Pharrell Williams Collaborates with Lego Group on Biographical Movie

Pharrell Williams just dropped a bombshell – he’s teamed up with the Lego Group for a biopic. Titled “Piece by Piece,” it’s not your run-of-the-mill flick. The press release calls it “an unparalleled motion picture experience,” highlighting Pharrell’s creative spark, one Lego brick at a time.

The hype doesn’t stop there. This film is set to shatter expectations, whisking audiences away to a Lego universe where dreams have no limits. Mark your calendars – “Piece by Piece” premieres on October 11, 2024.

Williams isn’t flying solo on this project; he’s got Focus Features in his corner. The man behind the camera? Morgan Neville, a name that carries weight. The production squad includes Tremolo Productions’ Caitrin Rogers and the team from I Am Other – Williams himself, Mimi Valdés, and Shani Saxon. And from the Lego fortress, executive producers Jill Wilfert and Keith Malone bring their A-game.

“When I had this crazy vision to tell this story through Lego bricks, I couldn’t have imagined a better partner than Morgan. He is a legend,” Williams said in a press release. “Grateful that Focus wanted to collaborate with us, and I’m honored to share this with the world and bring people into my universe. Building with Lego bricks encourages us to follow our imagination… who would’ve thought that playing with these toys as a kid would evolve into a movie about my life. It’s proof that anyone else can do it too.”

Morgan Neville, both director and producer, chimed in with equal enthusiasm. “Five years ago, Pharrell Williams approached me with the idea of helping him tell his story through Lego animation. It was one of those rare moments where I knew in a second that this was a journey I wanted to go on. I’m grateful to our partners at Focus Features and at the Lego Group for their belief in our crazy mission. We assembled an incredible team of creative collaborators to help make a new type of film. I can’t wait for people to see it.”
