‘Community’ director, Rob Schrab will helm the sequel to highly successful ‘The LEGO Movie’. This will be his feature directorial debut who previously directed TV shows such as ‘Parks and Recreation’, and ‘The Mindy Project’.
Directors of the first film Phil Lord and Christopher Miller have signed on as writers and producers along with Dan Lin and Roy Lee. Lord and Miller said this about Schrab:
“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!’ ”
This sequel will be the fourth film in the franchise which has spin-off ‘Ninjago’ being released next year and a Batman Lego movie planed for May 2017.
