Warner Bros. and The Lego Group have not renewed a pact to produce movies based on the Danish toyline, following the disappointing returns on The Lego Movie 2, which came out earlier this year.
According to stories in Deadline and The Hollywood Reporter, Lego is now trying to convince other Hollywood studios to take up the financing of its toy-based features. Universal is reportedly interested in an exclusive partnership. Lego film producer Dan Lin, who was profiled this week in The New York Times, is also interested in remaining attached to the franchise.
