The reason behind The Billion Brick Race cancellation
As you know LEGO movies by Warner Bros. have gained a lot of fame. But in 2017, after the release of The LEGO Batman Movie and other The LEGO Ninjago movies, they received many disappointing results. So they understood some mistakes and the studio could be thinking about a saturation strategy.
In the meantime, Warner bros. was working on The Billion Brick Race. This is a computer-animated movie. And was announced that it was going to be released in 2019 on 24 May. Warner Bros, along with Drew Pearce and Jason Segel wants to write and co-direct this spinoff. This was going to be the third spinoff in the LEGO movies. But firstly Warner bros replaced the director. They handed it to Jorge R. Gutierrez from Drew Pearce. And he also left the project for some other opportunities.
And after the failure of both The LEGO Ninjago and The LEGO Movie 2. So Warner Bros. ended their deal with LEGO company and they permanently canceled The Billion Brick Race. And they ended the deal in 2019 in the month of December. On 24 May, other than these three movies were released named Booksmart, Aladdin, and Brightburn.
A post from Jorge R. Gutierrez. On Facebook reveals that he is off the project, the words he said were the following:
“I would like to publicly and from the bottom of my heart thank everyone I worked with at Briksburg, LEGO, and WAG. These last 9 months were a rollercoaster of thrills, to say the least. I met so many amazing new people and learned a ton from all these incredible artists, directors, writers, editors, producers, and execs. I leave a better filmmaker and it’s because of you all. May our paths cross again. Gracias mis amigos. And as I toasted on my first day there, ‘May we slip n slide on the blood of our enemies.”
So this was a message that indicated he is leaving the project. And now the billion brick race is not releasing, it is permanently canceled.
As it was canceled before release so audiences did not know much about this project. That project did not face the daylight of cinema. Maybe it was just not meant to be for the audience.
