by Kevin Fitzpatrick April 8, 2015 @ 2:00 PM
FOX’s Lord and Miller comedy apocalypse The Last Man on Earth has had trouble finding its bearings after its stellar first few outings, but with Will Forte at the helm, it’s no surprise The Last Man gets another life. FOX has officially renewed The Last Man on Earth for Season 2, keeping Phil Miller in his increasingly-less private hell through 2016.

‘23 Jump Street’ Will Make All Those Crazy Fake Sequels From ‘22 Jump Street’ Official Canon

by Britt Hayes April 6, 2015 @ 7:43 PM
22 Jump Street might have the funniest end-credits sequence ever, in which directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller effectively ran the franchise into the ground with a series of fake sequels, including Flight School, Medical School and Art School, just to name a few. Here was a sequel no one thought could measure up to a movie no one thought could be that good, and Lord and Miller played on the notion of endless sequels with increasingly absurd ideas to extend their franchise, satisfying studio and fan demands. And now those fake sequels will officially become part of Jump Street cannon for 23 Jump Street.

Following their massive success with the Jump Street franchise and The LEGO Movie, just about everyone wants to get into the Phil Lord and Chris Miller business. The duo have proven their value with both animated and live-action features (as well as pulling off the near-impossible by making a great comedy sequel), so it’s hardly surprising to hear that Warner Bros. is seeking the pair to join the DC Universe.

Although Phil Lord and Chris Miller aren’t returning to direct the LEGO Movie sequel, the duo will stay on as executive producers and are writing the screenplay for the project.

We mostly assumed that a ‘23 Jump Street’ movie would never happen. Where could you possibly go after the lunacy of the ‘22 Jump Street’ end credits that joked at the idea of horrible sequels up until ‘43 Jump Street’ (subtitled “Mariachi School”). Then came reports late last year of an idea so insane that it might actually work: crossing over ‘23 Jump Street’ and ‘Men in Black’. It was so insane, in fact, that a lot of people thought it wasn’t real. But, directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller promise that it’s very real and that they’re currently developing the project at Sony.

Today brings another update from Lord and Miller—this time regarding the highly-anticipated spin-off ‘The LEGO Batman Movie,’ in which Will Arnett will reprise his role as everyone’s favorite brooding superhero. We kind of know what ‘The LEGO Movie 2' is about, but what will LEGO Batman's new spin-off be about?

But that’s changed, and the pair will now write the screenplay (though they are still not directing), as well as produce the sequel and its planned spin-offs. Lord and Miller have previously revealed little about ‘The LEGO Movie 2,’ but in a new interview they’ve opened up about why they decided to write the script, and deliver a few details about the sequel as well as the LEGO Ninjago and Batman films.

Phil Lord and Chris Miller’s Fake ‘Moonquake Lake’ Trailer Is a Perfect ‘Twilight’ Parody

by Britt Hayes December 15, 2014 @ 5:37 PM
If and when you see ‘Annie,’ you’ll notice the fake movie within the movie called ‘Moonquake Lake,’ starring Ashton Kutcher, Mila Kunis, and Rihanna. The trailer for that film wasn’t helmed by ‘Annie’ director Will Gluck, though—it was put together by hilarious geniuses Phil Lord and Chris Miller, the filmmaking duo behind the ‘Jump Street’ films and ‘The LEGO Movie.’ Not only does this trailer perfectly parody ‘Twilight’ and similar angsty, supernatural romance films for young adults, but it comes with its own theme song from Beck and Sia.
