Phil Lord and Chris Miller Not Returning For ‘The LEGO Movie 2′

Lego Movie review
Warner Bros.

'The LEGO Movie' was a huge, huge success for both Warner Bros. and LEGO (over $225 million and the highest-grossing movie of the year, so far) and both parties moved quickly to make sure 'The LEGO Movie 2' was happening. That's the good news. The bad news is that it will be happening without Phil Lord and Chris Miller, who wrote and directed the original.

New ’22 Jump Street’ Trailer Includes Hilarious Alternate Ending

22 Jump Street Trailer Alternate Ending
Sony Pictures

Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill are ready to reunite ... Well, technically they already did in 'The LEGO Movie' as LEGO Superman and LEGO Green Lantern, but we mean reprising their roles as undercover cops for '22 Jump Street.' With Schmidt and Jenko now heading to infiltrate a local college, there will surely be many crazy nights to be had -- so many, in fact, that Sony had to release an alternate cut of the '22 Jump Street' trailer just to give audiences a taste of how many antics will be taking place.

So, How Exactly Did They Make ‘The Lego Movie’ Anyway?

LEGO Movie
Warner Bros.

Filmmakers Phil Lord and Chris Miller have made it their business to turn seemingly tired properties (a children’s book about giant food, an eighties television show about cops masquerading as kids) into intelligent and incredibly funny feature films that appeal to kids and adults alike, and their latest outing, ‘The LEGO Movie,’ is no different – it just comes with the added caveat of centering its action on tiny plastic things. If anyone could make a film about LEGOs work, it’s Lord and Miller, and that’s just what they’ve done with their witty and inspired take on the classic toys – but how did they actually make it, well, work?

Block Party: Talking ‘The LEGO Movie’ With Writer/Directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller

The LEGO Movie interview
Warner Bros.

In 2006, Phil Lord and Chris Miller signed on to direct 'Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs,' an adaptation of the popular children's book that was all but dead at Sony Pictures Animation after the studio tried, and failed, to figure out how to crack for years. It was a movie no one thought could work. But, work it did, opening to great reviews and a strong showing at the box-office, spawning a sequel.

Lord and Miller, then moved on to their first live-action project, a remake of '21 Jump Street,' a movie the studio tried, and failed to figure out how to crack for years. It was a movie no one thought could work. But, work it did, opening to great reviews and a strong showing at the box-office, spawning a sequel.

The directing duo then set to work on 'The LEGO Movie,' a movie the studio tried, and failed, to -- nevermind, you see where this is going.

Lord and Miller - in just three movies - have proved themselves as two of the most daring and unique directors in Hollywood; a duo not only unafraid of a challenge, but actively seeking out challenges.

We caught up with the pair, who had just wrapped shooting both 'The LEGO Movie' and '22 Jump Street' simultaneously, to talk about why they make it so hard on themselves, how they avoiding turning 'LEGO' into a 90-minute commercial and why Warner Bros. had some doubts about what they wanted to do with Green Lantern.

‘The Lego Movie’ Trailer: Chris Pratt Leads a Great Assembly of Talent

lego-trailer

The best thing and the worst about making 'The Lego Movie' is that there's never really been much of a narrative to Lego toys. You put them together, that's it. So the film could be about anything. And from the trailer, directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller ('21 Jump Street') have fun with that freedom as we see the crossover of Lego toys from all different franchises assembled... for something.
