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.

Last week it was rumored that Warner Bros. had their eye on The LEGO Movie writing/directing duo Phil Lord and Chris Miller to help with The Flash solo film.

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.
