‘The LEGO Movie Sequel’ Taps ‘BoJack Horseman’ Creator For Script Rewrite
Scripts get rewritten and revised all the time, but coupled with a big release date change, it’s the sort of thing that seems a bit worrisome. Such is the case with The LEGO Movie Sequel, which was recently pushed back to 2019 and is undergoing some rewrites — which definitely does not sound like everything is awesome. But there is some good news, which should make fans of The LEGO Movie and a certain Netflix series pretty happy.
Per Variety, BoJack Horseman creator Raphael Bob-Waksberg has been tapped to rewrite the screenplay for The LEGO Movie Sequel, which is being directed by Rob Schrab, who previously worked on Community and Childrens Hospital. The LEGO Movie directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller are producing the upcoming sequel, for which they also wrote the first draft of the screenplay.
But wait, why would anyone hire someone else to rewrite a Lord and Miller screenplay? Don’t worry: Lord and Miller are simply too preoccupied with their Han Solo Star Wars spinoff to rework the draft themselves, so they decided to bring in another writer to help out. And it just so happens to be another very talented, very funny and original voice who also has experience in animation.
See, everything can be awesome after all. Or at least it will be, eventually, when The LEGO Movie Sequel hits theaters on February 8, 2019.
