With "The Lego Movie" set to open solidly this weekend, Warner Bros. has already launched development of a sequel.
The studio has tapped screenwriters Jared Stern and Michelle Morgan to write the script. Stern, who wrote "Mr. Popper's Penguins," was one of the half-dozen writers announced a year ago by Warner Bros. as part of its animation consortium aimed at revving up its production of high-end toons.
Will Ferrell, Elizabeth Banks, Liam Neeson, Will Arnett, Nick Offerman, Alison Brie and Morgan Freeman. Most of the animation was being produced by Australia-based Animal Logic.
Morgan wrote the Kristen Wiig comedy "Girl Most Likely." She's repped by UTA; Stern is repped by WME.
TheWrap.com first reported Stern writing the sequel.
