Out doing “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” promotion, actor Chris Pratt spoke about the in the works sequel to 2014’s “The LEGO Movie” – a follow-up that is still two years away.
Offering an update on the film’s current status to Gizmodo, he confirms he’s done a little work on the project but still has most of his work reprising his role of lead character Emmett left to go. He also indicates the film will address a key element of the first – the breakage of the fourth wall and scenes set in the real world:
“I’ve done some work on it but we really haven’t done the bulk of the work yet. I’m about to get the newest draft of the script and really dive into it in about two weeks. I’ve got my major record in about two weeks.
The first movie is a very difficult movie to create a sequel to because, as all the best movies do, it paints itself into a corner. Especially by tearing down the fourth wall in the final act. That’s a major jump, so they have got some really awesome ideas on how to deal with that and I can’t wait for people to see it.”
