Box Office: The LEGO Movie destroys it's competition for the third straight weekend

'The LEGO Movie 2' to be written by Phil Lord and Chris Miller

JamesArthurArmstrong JamesArthurArmstrong The Lego Movie 2 has just attached two screenwriters to the sequel and it comes as no surprise it's the returning directing duo of Phil Lord and Chris Miller, who made the hugely successful first movie.

Lord and Miller both wrote and directed the first film to massive success. Taking a concept that sounded fairly weak, they both turned it into one of this year’s most entertaining films with it grossing $468 million worldwide.

So, it was no surprise that Warner Bros. acted quickly in announcing a sequel and signing up the two guys that helped make it the huge success it turned out to be.

Warner Bros. has big plans for the Lego property. Aside from this upcoming sequel and the LEGO Batman stand-alone movie, there is also plans for a LEGO Movie spinoff called Ninjago— which has been set a 23rd September 2016 release. Lord and Miller will produce that movie, as well.

This is merely the cherry on top of an incredibly fruitful year for Lord and Miller. Not only did they gain huge box office and critical acclaim for The LEGO Movie, but they also saw more success come their way this summer with 22 Jump Street— which they both directed, too.
