Some great but then possibly some not so great news coming to us from the guys over at that the surprisingly good and very funny ‘Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs’ is getting a deserved sequel.

However the sequel is not being directed by Phil Lord and Chris Miller this time round but they are working on the story that’s due to be based on the 2nd book of the series: Pickles to Pittsburgh, the book synopsis reads:-

“Kate and Henry pilot a plane, landing on a runway of crisp bacon strips next to a field of giant broccoli stalks and over-sized hamburgers. Passing through an orange-juice rain, they approach the town of Chewandswallow, which “used to be a very ordinary town, except that instead of weather, food rained down from the sky for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.” Times have changed in Chewandswallow, and readers will love finding out how storms of gigantic food threatened normal life until eventually the Falling Food Company was created, sending food to hungry people around the world.”

It will however be more good news than bad as long if Sony can keep the same creative team that designed such a visually brilliant and incredibly funny experience of the first film which was easily one of the best animated films of last year and one that was sorely underrated.
