Doctor Who Coming To “LEGO Movie” Sequel

While there are no plans right now for a film based on the “Doctor Who” franchise, it seems the Time Lord might be coming to the big screen in an unexpected way.

Rob Schrab, the filmmaker who is directing the upcoming “The LEGO Movie” sequel, has teased a potential appearance by The Doctor in the film via an appearance on Harmontown Podcast (via io9).

Schrab says talks are already underway between Warner Bros. and the BBC to include The Doctor in the next Lego Movie – no word though on how large a role he’ll have as yet. Phil Lord and Chris Miller are scripting the project based on a story they created with Jared Stern and Michelle Morgan.

LEGO recently struck a deal with the BBC to bring The Doctor to the video game “Lego Dimensions”, and they plan to release a “Doctor Who” playset next month.
