Warners have officially declared that Community and The Mindy Project’s Rob Schrab will direct the sequel to the best animated movie never nominated for an Oscar.
Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, who wrote and directed The Lego Movie, are writing the sequel. It will be based on a story by Lord, Miller, Jared Stern and Michelle Morgan. In addition, Lord and Miller will serve as producers, alongside returning producers Dan Lin and Roy Lee.
Lord and Miller stated, “We are so excited to collaborate with Rob. 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!’”
