The LEGO Movie BILLION BRICK RACE Moves Forward With BOOK OF LIFE Director Jorge Gutierrez
Warner Bros. is developing another LEGO spinoff movie! This new film is in addition to The LEGO Movie franchise, The LEGO Batman Movie, and the upcoming LEGO Ninjago Movie. The working title for the new film is The Billion Brick Race and it will be helmed by The Book of Life director Jorge Gutierrez.
There's no information on what the story for the new LEGO film will entail, but it seems like it will be in good hands with Gutierrez. I really loved what he did with The Book of Life and I think he has the talent and skill to bring fans another great LEGO movie.
The movie was originally announced back in 2015 and at the time, Jason Segel and Drew Pearce were attached to co-direct. Things obviously didn't work out with them, because they're no longer involved. However, the initial idea and script came from Pearce who previously worked on Iron Man 3 and Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation.
Judging by the title of the film the movie will involve some kind of race. When I first saw the title I immediately thought of the films, It's a Mad Mad Mad World and Rat Race. If it's along those lines, we should be in for something fun.
