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.

Animated ‘Spider-Man’ Movie Finds New Director as Sony Preps Animated Slate

by Matt Singer June 20, 2016 @ 4:46 PM
The Hollywood Reporter has a new article about a bunch of animated content coming in the years ahead from Sony Pictures. The biggest news of the bunch is the director on the animated Spider-Man movie that was originally announced as a Phil Lord and Chris Miller joint last year. Lord wrote the movie’s screenplay, without Miller apparently, but both are still aboard the project as producers. Replacing them as director(s) is Bob Persichetti, an animator who was the head of story on Puss in Boots and The Little Prince. As for the rumor that this Spider-Man would focus on Miles Morales, the half-black and half Hispanic teenager who replaced Peter Parker in the series Ultimate Spider-Man, THR says “the company was mum on rumors.” The animated Spider-Man is on course for a December 21, 2018 release.

‘Spider-Man’ Animated Movie Will Reportedly Feature Miles Morales

Leading up to the two most recent Spider-Man reboots, some fans expressed a desire to see the Miles Morales version of the web-slinger on the big screen instead of rehashing the same ol’ Peter Parker story. It looks like those fans may get their wish, as Morales is rumored to be the focus of Phil Lord and Chris Miller’s upcoming animated Spider-Man film — which does make sense, as the project is said to be separate from Sony and Marvel’s reboot with Tom Holland.
