Los Angeles: Director Rob Schrab, whose credits include 'Community' and 'The Mindy Project', will helm the upcoming sequel to 2014 hit 'The Lego Movie'.
Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, who directed the first film, will produce and write the follow-up, titled 'The Lego Movie Sequel'.
"We are so excited to collaborate with Rob. He is a comedy genius, a visual savant, and we have been stalking him for years. No one works harder than Rob, and his aesthetic, combined with his sense of humour, bring a strong, unique, thoughtful, and passionately nerdy voice to this project.
"People who know him are slapping their foreheads today and saying, Of course!'" Lord and Miller said in a statement.
'The Lego Movie Sequel' is set for release in the US on May 26, 2017.
