THE LEGO MOVIE 2 Casts Tiffany Haddish in a Lead Role
Girls Trip star Tiffany Haddish has joined the cast for The LEGO Movie 2 in a lead role. She will be joining Chris Pratt, Elizabeth Banks, Will Arnett, Channing Tatum, and Jonah Hill who are each reprising their roles from the first film. Haddish has been getting a lot of work done lately as she is currently set to star opposite Tracy Morgan on The Last O.G. on TBS, star opposite Kevin Hart in Night School, hosting the MTV Movie & TV Awards this year, and she’s scored a first-look deal with HBO. This is all after her book The Last Black Unicorn became a New York Times best-seller in December.
No plot details for The LEGO Movie 2 have been released, but we know that Mike Mitchell will be directing the sequel with a script from Raphael Bob-Waksberg (BoJack Horseman). Phil Lord and Christopher Miller had written a script, but Bob-Waksberg has rewritten it. Lord and Miller will serve as producers on the sequel alongside Dan Lin and Roy Lee.
The LEGO Movie 2 is currently slated for a February 8, 2019, release.
