‘Lego’ Sequel Taps ‘Community’ Director Rob Schrab

Warner Bros. has tapped TV director Rob Schrab to make his feature directorial debut on “The Lego Movie Sequel.”

The studio has not dated “The Lego Movie Sequel” yet but it’s probably heading for a 2018 release.

Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, who wrote and directed “The Lego Movie,” are writing the sequel based on a story by Lord, Miller, Jared Stern and Michelle Morgan. Lord and Miller will also produce along  returning producers Dan Lin and Roy Lee.

“We are so excited to collaborate with Rob,” Lord and Miller said. “He is a comedy genius, a visual savant, and we have been stalking him for years. No one works harder than Rob, and his aesthetic, combined with his sense of humor, bring a strong, unique, thoughtful, and passionately nerdy voice to this project. People who know him are slapping their foreheads today and saying, ‘Of course!’”

Schrab has recently directed episodes of “Community,” “The Mindy Project” and “Parks and Recreation.” He also wrote, directed and executive produced “The Sarah Silverman Program.”

“The Lego Movie Sequel” is the fourth film in the franchise for Warner Bros., which has spinoff  “Ninjago” set for a Sept. 23, 2016, release, and the untitled Batman Lego for May 2017.

“The Lego Movie” grossed over $460 million worldwide. Lord and Miller came on to write and produce the sequel in October.
