‘Community’ Alum Rob Schrab to Direct ‘LEGO Movie’ Sequel

“The LEGO Movie” sequel has its director: According to multiple sources including The Hollywood Reporter and Deadline, TV comedy veteran Rob Schrab is officially on board for the film.

The “LEGO Movie” follow-up — tentatively expected for some point in 2018 — will be Schrab’s feature film directorial debut. He’s directed multiple acclaimed TV comedies, including episodes of “The Sarah Silverman Program,” “Parks and Recreation,” “Childrens Hospital,” “The Mindy Project” and “Community” — where he directed last year’s mostly-animated “G.I. Joe” homage “G.I. Jeff,” plus episodes from its forthcoming sixth season. Schrab is a longtime collaborator of “Community” creator Dan Harmon — the two co-wrote the animated film “Monster House” and cult-favorite failed pilot “Heat Vision and Jack,” along with co-founding Channel 101.

Schrab’s also known to indie comic book fans as the creator of “Scud: The Disposable Assassin,” which ran from 1994 to 1998 with a four-part finale in 2008.

2014’s original “LEGO Movie” was a critical and financial success, attracting widespread acclaim and grossing $468.8 million worldwide. “21 Jump Street” duo Phil Lord and Christopher Miller directed the first installment, and will return as producers for the second.
