[Movies] Producer Dan Lin Talks Lego: Piece of Resistance and 21 Jump Street 2 Posted by Jeffrey Harris on 12.19.2012
Will we see a 21 Jump Street sequel?
Collider spoke with producer Dan Lin about the status of the new movies Lego: Piece of Resistance and 21 Jump Street 2.
Regarding the Lego movie: "If you know [Lord and Miller's] work... they are funny guys, they are quirky guys. This is very specific to their tone and they've created a whole new set of original characters that no one's seen before. The vision that [writer Phil] Lord and [writer Chris] Miller had for the movie was that anything you see in the movie can be actually built out of Lego bricks," he continued. "And with Lego they know their core audience so well that they're really helping to educate us about their core audience and what they like and what they may have issues with."
Regarding Lego helping with the movie: "They've been really a great partner in the process," Lin said. "For instance, they're building some of the models for our movie. I just got back from Australia and they built a pirate ship that we have in the movie and they really have helped us design the characters."
Regarding the status of a 21 Jump Street sequel: "Yeah, we'll work on it intensely until February, Lord and Miller are; they're re-writing the script, working with artists on this animatic and hopefully in February the plan is to send this animatic to Australia and they'll have less day-to-day involvement and free themselves up for other projects."
