Jason Segel and Drew Pearce Set to direct ‘The Lego Movie’ Spinoff

Last years The Lego Movie directed by Phil Lord and Chris Miller was such a success, that not only was a sequel immediately commissioned, but multiple spinoff films as well.  So far the lineup includes Ninjago set for a 2016 release, The Lego Batman Movie in 2017, The Lego Movie Sequel in 2018, and now the Jason Segel/Drew Pearce’s The Billion Brick Race.

It should be interesting to see the dynamics between Segel and Pearce.  Segel, best know for his comedies including Forgetting Sarah Marshall, I Love You, Man, and 2011’s The Muppets.  Pearce on the other hand, is known for writing highly intense action films.  He wrote Iron Man 3 and the upcoming Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation, as well as many screenplay re-writes.  Their sensibilities could blend together to make an interesting final product.
