HOLLYWOOD – The Lego Movie 2 is already in production, but Stephen King’s script has apparently leaked onto the internet.
Everyone loved The Lego Movie. But now you can read the script to The Lego Movie 2, written by Stephen King.
INT. BEDROOM. NIGHT.
A man and his wife are sleeping in bed. A soft THUMP is heard.
What’s that, honey?
Go back to sleep sweetheart, I’ll go and check it out.
The man gets out of bed. He looks at his slippers.
I guess I don’t really need to wear those.
He walks out of the bedroom and down the corridor to his son’s room.
INT. SON’S BEDROOM. NIGHT.
The son turns over in his sleep. There are a pile of comic books on the bed and another one slides off the bed and lands with a THUMP. Tiptoeing, DAD crosses the room and moves the comic books to the shelves and then tucks his son in with a smile. Turning to return to his bedroom he…
CLOSE UP on barefoot:
…steps on a piece of Lego.
He SCREAMS in agony. And falls in slow motion. CUJO the LEGO dog leaps from the shadows and tears an arm off. LEGO Annie Wilkes chops his foot off at the ankle with a LEGO ax handed to her by LEGO Jack Torrance. The creepy LEGO twins stand blocking DAD’s path.
Come and play with us Daddy. Forever,
LEGO Pennywise lead the others in song.
Everything is terrifying,
Everything is terrifying
(when you’ve stepped on a LEGO).

HOLLYWOOD – He said he’d never do it, but Austrian film director Michael Haneke is considering taking the helm of The Lego Movie 2.
Phil Lord and Chris Miller spoke about the Funny Games and White Ribbon director’s involvement with The Lego Movie 2 and his involvement with their previous projects:
Michael likes to keep the worlds seperate, but in truth he has been a part of our creative team since the very beginning. He is fascinated by the duality of life. On one side you have the brutality of existence and on the other the hopelessness of existence. We first met him when we were young film students and he was making Funny Games (US). We had a script for Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs and he very generously read it and gave us some notes.
What were the notes?
He said that the main character, Flint Lockwood, should die at the end. And Sam Sparks should die. And Flint’s dad should die. Everybody should die basically and food should take over the world. We obviously decided to go in another direction, but he encouraged us to work harder for the comedy.
How will he be involved in The Lego Movie 2?
Michael basically wrote the first two drafts of the first film. The whole subversion of capitalism thing was him. Very few people know this, but Michael also wrote the lyrics to Everything is Awesome, which when you think about it is awesome. Naturally we went to him for ideas on the sequel and jokingly asked if he would be interested in directing it. At first he was unsure because he is also scripting 23 Jump Street and he’s wrapping up production of the Amour sequel, but we are very hopeful he is going to say yes.
How will The Lego Movie 2 be different with Michael Haneke directing?
I’m not sure it’ll be darker. After all, Michael likes to defy expectations, but the script is in and we’re really looking forward to seeing what he can do.
The Lego Movie 2: Extinction will be filming in 2016.
