'Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs' is getting a sequel, but it'll have to make do without the original directors, i09 reports.

But before you panic, word is that the original directing team of Phil Lord and Chris Miller will be working on the story for the follow-up to their animated hit.

'Cloudy' fans already know that there's a built-in sequel -- ie, the second book in the series by Judi and Ron Barrett, 'Pickles to Pittsburgh,' in which Kate (one of the main characters in the book) dreams about a postcard her grandfather has sent her. There's a plane ride, a runway of bacon strips, orange juice rain and a town called Chewandswallow. (We'll eat to that.)

No replacement director (or directors) have been named yet to take on the sequel, and there's been no announcement about which of the original voice cast will return, but unless we're facing all new characters, we're expecting (hoping?) Bill Hader to return as the voice of Flint Lockwood.
