It was rumored a while back during the big Sony e-mail hack that the studio was eyeing Phil Lord and Chris Miller for an animated Spider-Man film. Now that Sony and Marvel have reached an agreement to cross the web-slinger over into the MCU, some progress is being made in the realm of Spidey, and the studio has officially confirmed The LEGO Movie duo for a new animated project — one that will be part of the new continuity.

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. It wasn’t clear if the studio wanted Lord and Miller to write or direct the project (or both), but it looks like at the very least, the pair are officially developing the story for The Flash — and that’s the extent of their involvement…for now.
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.
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.
FOX's Will Forte-led 'The Last Man on Earth' brings the apocalypse anew this Sunday, but is Lord and MIller's latest a comedy triumph or desolate wasteland? We give you an early insight with our spoiler-free review!
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’ve been wondering who might be awesome enough to direct the sequel, which has been given the difficult task of living up to its predecessor, and now we have an answer: Rob Schrab, known best for directing episodes of former NBC series Community.
Premiering this Sunday, Lord and Miller FOX comedy The Last Man on Earth still presents as something of a mystery, even with fan-favorite SNL alum Will Forte at the helm. We’ve seen a number of the basic gags in previews of the new series, but do the first full clips an a new promo clue us in to The Last Man on Earth?
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.
Will Forte’s FOX tenure as ‘The Last Man on Earth’ under Phil Lord and Chris Miller has been fraught with secrecy, for a comedy series. And while the latest trailer for the apocalyptic comedy’s March 1 premiere doesn’t answer any of the big questions, or contradict its title with Forte’s fellow cast members, ‘The Last Man on Earth’ seems to have found plenty of destructive fun at the end of the world.
