Deadline is reporting that Warner Bros. has signed Phil Lord and Christopher Miller to write the script for The LEGO Movie 2. The pair wrote and directed the first LEGO Movie which became a blockbuster hit grossing $468 million in theaters. They were slated to produce the sequel but there wasn’t any indication before whether they would do anything else besides producing. There’s no word yet if they will be directing as well. Since Lord and Miller will be writing the script, it’ll be interesting to see which direction the sequel will go, whether it’ll continue off from the first movie or do a new storyline.
The LEGO Movie 2 will be released on May 26, 2017. Dan Lin and Roy Lee will be producing along with Lord and Miller. Jill Wilfert, Matt Ashton, Chris McKay and Kara Lord Piersimoni are signed on to be executive producers.
