‘Lego Movie’ Directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller Set to Script Sequel

“The Lego Movie 2” is gaining momentum with Phil Lord and Chris Miller signing on with Warner Bros to write and produce.

The duo wrote and directed “The Lego Movie,” which grossed over $460 million worldwide this year. Dan Lin and Roy Lee are producing with Lord and Miller, and Jill Wilfert, Matt Ashton, Chris McKay and Kara Lord Piersimoni are exec producers.

A director has not yet been selected for “The Lego Movie 2.” The studio’s Greg Silverman, Courtenay Valenti and Chris Defaria are overseeing.

Warner Bros. set the date on Oct. 16 as part of its massive slate announcement that included 10 DC titles, three Harry Potter spinoffs and three Lego spinoffs: “Ninjago” in 2016, Lego Batman in 2017 and “The Lego Movie 2” in 2018.

“Lego Movie 2” had originally been set for 2017, but Lego Batman has been moved into that slot.

McKay, who supervised animation on “The Lego Movie,” is directing Lego Batman from a script by Seth Grahame-Smith with Lee, Lin, Lord and Miller all returning as producers. Will Arnett will again voice the Caped Crusader, who mimicked Christian Bale’s Batman basso profundo voice in “The Lego Movie.”

“The Lego Movie” was the first project to emerge from Warner’s animation consortium. Most of the animation was produced by Australia-based Animal Logic. Lin, Lee, Miller and Lord are producing “Ninjago” with Charlie Bean directing.

News about Lord and Miller coming on board “The Lego Movie 2” was first reported by Deadline.com.
