With their work on the Star Wars: Han Solo movie cut short, Phil Lord and Christopher Miller have returned to one of their biggest hits, with the sequel to The LEGO Movie.
The pair – who were always involved with the feature – are back on screenplay duties for the movie, that’s this time being directed by Mike Mitchell. The news was confirmed by producer Dan Lin, who’s currently on the promotional trail for the upcoming The LEGO Ninjago Movie.
Talking to Collider, he said that “the team is all back together, so it’s Lord and Miller, myself and Chris McKay [McKay most recently directed The LEGO Batman Movie]”.
“Mike Mitchell is the new voice who’s coming in to direct the movie. Chris and Phil are rewriting the script right now, but we’re in production. We’re picking up where the first movie left us, where the Duplo have now come and they’re attacking Bricksburg. It’s several years later, and you’re going to see the result of that”.
There’s still some time to go before we see the final film, though. It’s not scheduled for release until early 2019. As we hear more, we’ll keep you posted.
