I imagine my reaction to the news that Disney and Lucasfilm were going to make a movie about “Young Han Solo” — and that said film was going to be directed by the dynamic duo of Phil Lord and Chris Miller — was the same as a lot of other movie nerds. It went something like this.

Last night we got a brief update from Chris Miller on 23 Jump Street, with the writer / director revealing that he and partner Phil Lord will produce but not direct the sequel. Lord and Miller are currently busy with a few other major projects, including the young Han Solo Star Wars film and an animated Spider-Man movie for Sony. Although he initially didn’t provide updates on either of those projects, Miller had a few things to say later on following his appearance at The Last Man on Earth TCA panel.

We’ve known for some time now that original Jump Street writing / directing duo Phil Lord and Chris Miller would be involved with 23 Jump Street, but given their increasingly busy schedules, it seemed less and less likely that they’d find time to direct it. Turns out that’s definitely the case, as the pair will merely be involved as producers on the upcoming sequel.

The inherent secrecy of The Last Man on Earth gave its first season a few ups and downs, though those directions look increasingly literal by the Will Forte-starring, Lord and Miller-produced comedy’s first Season 2 poster. Carol and Phil (and all his sporting good friends) hit the road in our first look at Season 2, but what might it mean for the rest of the cast?

Sometime in June, we first heard that Lord and Miller would develop a new “live-action / animation hybrid” series for FOX, with a creative team and partial cast already in place. Now, SNL alum Jason Sudeikis has signed on as the titular animated Barbarian for Son of Zorn, along with a host of others for the bizarre project.

There are only so many Star Wars characters rich and popular enough to anchor their own spinoff film, and from the moment Disney and Lucasfilm announced they would be pairing the new Episodes VII through IX with so-called Anthology films, fans have speculated which of those characters might receive their own spotlight. Top of just about every list: Han Solo, the beloved, amoral bounty hunter and captain of the Millennium Falcon. The first announced Anthology movie, Star Wars: Rogue One, will focus on the story of the Rebel fighters who stole the plans for the original Death Star that become crucial to the plot of the first Star Wars. The second Anthology, per The Hollywood Reporter, will give Han Solo that showcase that so many nerds want.

Lord and Miller have become go-to names for comedy, continuing on TV through The Last Man on Earth, and apparently devoid of scheduling conflicts, the two have added yet another project to their plate. Curious-sounding Son of Zahn will get the Lord and Miller treatment on FOX, a unique hybrid of live-action and animation.

Phil Lord Says ‘The Flash’ and Animated ‘Spider-Man’ Films Are Basically Standalone Projects

As producers, writers and directors, Phil Lord and Chris Miller are one hell of a team, taking ideas that seemed sort of ridiculous and delivering hugely entertaining and successful franchises…which is why it makes sense that every major studio wants to get in the Lord and Miller business. The duo are attached to develop The Flash solo movie for WB, as well as an animated Spider-Man film for Sony. That’s not news — what is news is Lord’s revelation that both projects will operate a bit independently from their larger franchises.

FOX’s The Last Man on Earth literally went into orbit for its first season finale, but Lord, Miller and Will Forte have come back to Earth a bit for Season 2. The post-apocalyptic comedy has added a writer of The Interview for Season 2, taking over direct showrunning duties for The Last Man on Earth.
