Will Ferrell, Liam Neeson, Nick Offerman and Alison Brie are lending their voices to the upcoming 3-D animated feature Lego: The Piece of Resistance.

The four stars will join Chris Pratt, Elizabeth Banks, Will Arnett and Morgan Freeman in the film, which revolves around an average Lego figure, who is mistakenly identified as having extraordinary abilities that would enable the character to save the world.

Ferrell will voice President Business, an enemy of the film's hero (Pratt), with Neeson as his powerful henchman, Bad Cop.

Offerman is a pirate obsessed with revenge against the president.

Lego: The Piece of Resistance will be directed by Phil Lord and Christopher Miller (21 Jump Street and Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs) from a script they wrote.

It is expected to open in 2014.
