The changes keep on coming for “The Lego Movie Sequel.”
After moving the animated movie to Feb. 8, 2019, Warner Bros. has also hired Raphael Bob-Waksberg to rewrite the script.
Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, who directed the first film, penned the original draft. With the duo currently prepping for the “Star Wars” Han Solo spinoff, the studio opted to get a fresh take on the script.
Rob Schrab is directing with Lord and Miller producing along with returning producers Dan Lin and Roy Lee.
“The Lego Movie Sequel” is the fourth film in the Warner Bros. franchise, which has two other spinoffs on the horizon: “The Lego Batman Movie” is set for Feb. 10, 2017, and “The Lego Ninjago Movie” is scheduled for Sept. 22, 2017.
“The Lego Movie” grossed more than $469 million worldwide.
The project is Bob-Waksberg’s first film gig, following TV work on shows like “Adult Hospital” and “Save Me.” He created the Netflix animated comedy “BoJack Horseman.” The show’s third season premieres on July 22.
Bob-Waksberg also just sold his short story collection, “Someone Who Will Love You in All Your Damaged Glory: Bang-Your-Knee, Bust-Your-Heart-Open Love Stories,” to Knopf Publishing.
He is repped by CAA, lawyer Jeff Endlich and Principato-Young Entertainment.
