Warner Bros. is moving forward with a sequel to The LEGO Movie, and they've hired a director to bring it to life. I have to say I absolutely love who they will be working with on it. Chris McKay is the guy who will be helming the sequel, and he's a perfect choice as he's one of the main guys behind Adult Swim's hilarious series Robot Chicken. It makes complete sense to me that McKay should be directing this sequel.
The directors of the first film, Phil Lord and Chris Miller, will be back as producers on the film. Michelle Morgan and Jared Stern are currently writing the script for the movie. According to Deadline, they are trying to figure out whether this is going to be a straight sequel or a film that broadens the LEGO empire by focusing on the character Ninjago.
I loved The LEGO Movie, and I think that McKay will be able to bring some really awesome elements to the sequel.
