Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs

The dynamic duo of Phil Lord and Chris Miller brought fantastic life to the adaptation of the classic children's book Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, even if it deviated far from the source material, but now a different team will tackle the forthcoming sequel. Variety reports Sony Animation artists Cody Cameron and Kris Pearn will be at the helm of Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2, which, as we learned in July, will not be based on the sequel book, titled Pickles in Pittsburgh. At this point we don't know anything about the story, but the talent being lined up behind the camera doesn't have me worried in the slightest.

Pearn and Cameron worked on the first film as head of story and a story artist respectively and the former is also responsible for the home video sequel Open Season 3. In addition, the writing team of John Francis Daley (formerly a star of "Freaks and Geeks" and "Bones") and writing partner Jonathan Goldstein are writing a new draft of the script. The duo have been on a hot streak lately having written Horrible Bosses and the upcoming magician comedy Burt Wonderstone starring Steve Carell and Jim Carrey. Having loved the first film, I can't wait to see what a sequel can deliver.
