The Critics Agree has exclusively learned via Variety that Warner Bros. has announced the writers for The Lego Movie 2.
Two guys named Phil Lord and Chris Miller will be the screenwriters this time around. Maybe they’ll do a good job, but we’re perturbed for two reasons:
1. We’ve never heard of these chumps.
2. We wish Chris Pratt and Will Arnett were back writing the film, as they were the key to the success of the original.
But that’s Hollywood for you: they think they can re-create success without the people responsible for the original work. Here’s hoping The Lego Movie 2 isn’t a disaster!
