It looks like Warner Bros. is really committed to stuffing its Lego Movie series with well-respected veterans of critically acclaimed TV shows for some reason. It’s a great idea that worked out really well the first time around when Clone High’s Phil Lord and Chris Miller were the writers and directors, but continuing the trend seems almost unfair. Like, do we as a society really deserve to have multiple Lego movies made by truly talented people? Apparently we do, because in addition to Community’s Rob Schrab directing The Lego Movie Sequel, Variety is now reporting that BoJack Horseman creator Raphael Bob-Waksberg has been tapped to do a rewrite on that movie’s script.
Lord and Miller themselves wrote the original draft, but they’ve since moved on to work on that Han Solo movie, so Warner Bros. has brought on Bob-Waksberg to inject some of BoJack’s trademark wit and pathos. Surprisingly, given the way his show revolves around being a celebrity and the pressures of working with Hollywood studios, The Lego Movie Sequel will be his first time working on a big-screen film. Maybe after this he’ll finally get a chance to make that Secretariat biopic he’s always dreamed of.
