The Lego Movie Directors Will Return to Write The Sequel

Phil Lord and Chris Miller, who wrote and directed The Lego Movie and directed both 22 Jump Street and the pilot for Brooklyn Nine-Nine over the course of the last year or so, will write the Lego Movie sequel for Warner Bros., Deadline reports.

Still no word on whether the filmmakers will direct the movie.

The pair are set to produce Lego Batman and the other Lego Movie sequels, and are set to direct the pilot for Fox Television's upcoming sci-fi comedy Last Man on Earth as well as The Interview for CBS and a remake of the 1981 cult classic Greatest American Hero at Fox.

Warner Bros has already dated the sequel for May 26, 2017. Dan Lin and Roy Lee are producing with Lord and Miller, and Jill Wilfert, Matt Ashton, Chris McKay and Kara Lord Piersimoni are executive producers.
