Jason Segel is teaming with “Iron Man 3” scribe Drew Pearce to pen and co-direct “The Billion Brick Race,” a new spin-off based on “The LEGO Movie” which is being setup at Warner Bros. Pictures.
“The Lego Movie” brain trust of Phil Lord, Chris Miller, Dan Lin and Roy Lee are on board to produce the film which is based on an original idea by Pearce. However, plot details are being kept hidden.
This film will be in addition to the three other LEGO movies in development at the studio including next year’s “Ninjago” film, the Batman LEGO movie in 2017, and “The LEGO Movie” sequel in 2018.
This would mark Segel and Pearce’s first foray into feature directing.
