Phil Lord and Chris Miller will write The LEGO Movie 2

While Phil Lord and Chris Miller directed The LEGO Movie to great success, both critically and financially, it had been thought that the duo would take something of a back seat on the forthcoming sequel, restricting their involvement to production duties.

However, according to Deadline , the pair will be more heavily involved than first anticipated, having signed an agreement to pen the script for The LEGO Movie 2 .

That said, they will still be passing on the directorial reins, although with co-helmer Chris McKay now confirmed for the LEGO Batman spin-off, it remains to be seen whether he will still be directing The LEGO Movie 2 as had first been planned.

Whoever does end up filling the director’s chair will have plenty to live up to, with the first film having brought in a whopping $470 million worldwide, as well as scoring a raft of positive reviews.

The LEGO Movie 2 is expected to open in the UK at some point in 2018. An official release date has yet to be confirmed.
