Just one month ago we got word that The LEGO Movie and 21 Jump Street directors Phil Lord & Chris Miller would be at the helm of the second Star Wars Anthology movie coming in 2018, this one focusing on Han Solo, renowned smuggler and captain of the Millennium Falcon. But since then we haven’t heard anything about the project, not even wild rumors.
But that changes today as Chris Miller spoke a little bit about the “huge pressure” of making a Han Solo adventure, let alone a new Star Wars movie, and how they’re grappling with the fact that they’re making a “childhood dream” come true. Find out more about what Chris Miller said about the Han Solo movie after the jump! Read More »

The cast and creators of The Last Man on Earth mingled with the press at the Television Critics Association summer press tour yesterday. Fox execs announced Jason Sudeikis is going to be added to the cast, but the mere attendance of January Jones at this even suggests that the show has not abandoned its Tucson-based characters, even though (spoiler) Phil Miller (Will Forte) and Carol Pilbasian (Kristen Schaal) left Tucson in the season finale.
Executive producer Chris Miller was careful not to spoil too much of the upcoming season, but hinted at how the split works out. “I will say that Phil and Carol are in one place at the very beginning,” Chris Miller said. “January is in another place. I will also say that the majority of this season does not take place in Tucson.” Read More »

The prospect of Phil Lord and Chris Miller writing the Flash and animated Spider-Man movies, and directing Han Solo’s Star Wars Anthology film, is very exciting. We’d suspected that these commitments would prohibit them from directing the third entry in the Jump Street franchise that, against all expectations, they helped turn into a blockbuster series. They’d already decided to produce Lego Movie sequels and spinoffs for other directors while concentrating on other big-screen projects and TV series like The Last Man on Earth.
Chris Miller was at the Fox day for the Television Critics Association summer press tour representing The Last Man on Earth, and he confirmed for me that he and Phil Lord are likely only going to produce 23 Jump Street. Read More »

With news surfacing that The LEGO Movie and 21 Jump Street directors Phil Lord & Chris Miller will be at the helm of a new Star Wars Anthology film focusing on a young Han Solo, everyone is wondering just who will play the charismatic smuggler.
Harrison Ford made the role iconic in the original Star Wars trilogy, and he’ll be reprising the role in The Force Awakens. But Ford can’t play a young version of the character without extensive visual effects, so some younger actor is going to have to get in the cockpit of the Millennium Falcon. The question is who can pull it off?
We’ve rounded up some possibilities, some likely, some not, and some more preferable than others. Check out our list of 20 Actors Who Should Play Han Solo after the jump! Read More »
