'Community's Rob Schrab Is Directing the 'Lego Movie' Sequel

Variety reports that the sequel to the wonderful, Oscar-snubbed Lego Movie has its director: Community's Rob Schrab. Seeing as the previous directors, Chris Miller and Phil Lord (who are returning to write the script), also came from an excellent TV background with Clone High, and with the level of meta-ness that both The Lego Movie and Community share, it's an inspired choice.
