Phil Lord & Chris Miller have effectively worked their magic on the big screen with Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, 21 Jump Street (and its equally as good sequel) and The LEGO Movie. But on the small screen, they’ve also delivered great comedy with Clone High and Last Man on Earth. Now they’re bringing even more laughs to TV with two new series.
Son of Zorn and Making History couldn’t be more different, but both have Lord & Miller’s trademark comedy and promise of something great. Watch the Making History and Son of Zorn trailer after the jump. Read More »

What’s more difficult: trying to reconnect with your live-action family or fighting a war in a faraway animated land? According to Son of Zorn executive producers Phil Lord & Chris Miller (The Lego Movie), the former scenario is the greater obstacle to face. In the half live-action/animated hybrid Fox project, Zorn (Jason Sudeikis) struggles to connect with his ex-wife (Cheryl Hines) and his teenage son (Johnny Pemberton), as he tries to adjust to his new mundane lifestyle.

The giant hunt for the new Han Solo seems to be slowly drawing to a close, with Hail, Caesar! star Alden Ehrenreich reportedly emerging as the frontrunner to strap on that iconic vest last week. If he does nab the coveted role, he will do so after surviving an audition process that saw him measured up against countless other performers, from total unknowns to actors who have headlined their own movies, like Miles Teller and Taron Egerton.
One of the actors who auditioned for the role but didn’t make the cut was Now You See Me and Neighbors star Dave Franco. Now that he’s free of the process, he’s talking about it. Just a little bit.

UPDATED: Deadline is reporting Hail, Caesar! standout Alden Ehrenreich has emerged as the frontrunner for the Han Solo movie. Our original story from March 15, 2016 follows.
As the 2018 release date for Phil Lord and Chris Miller‘s Han Solo spinoff inches ever closer, the list of potential leads has been getting smaller and smaller. The directors and studio Disney reportedly looked at thousands of young actors for the role, and as of earlier this year had started to narrow down the possibilities. Now they’re in the home stretch, as a final shortlist has emerged. Among those still in the running are Jack Reynor (Transformers: Age of Extinction), Taron Egerton (Kingsman: The Secret Service), and Alden Ehrenreich (Hail, Caesar!). Read More »

Do we need to know how Han Solo was raised as a kid? Not really, but from what we’ve heard so far about the untitled Han Solo spin-off, that’s not the type of origin story director Phil Lord & Chris Miller are cooking up for audiences. Of course some familiar faces are bound to appear in the film, including Han Solo’s loyal pal and co-pilot, Chewbacca.
This isn’t a huge surprise, but it’s been confirmed the lovable Wookiee is a part of the film.

It seems like Phil Lord and Chris Miller can do no wrong. They turned what could have been a boring film adaptation of an old TV series into something hilarious with 21 Jump Street and the equally as good sequel. They crafted the brilliance that was The LEGO Movie. And they also made some magic on TV with Fox’s comedy The Last Man on Earth. Now they’re sticking with the sci-fi comedy realm for a new series at Fox called Making History, and it involves time travel. Is there a way I can set my DVR to record this now? Read More »

Harrison Ford is Han Solo, as much as any real person can embody any fictional character, and it’s tough to imagine anyone else stepping into the role after nearly 40 years. But with a “young Han Solo” spinoff in the works from Phil Lord and Chris Miller, the time has come for us to meet and hopefully fall for a different stuck-up, half-witted, scruffy-looking nerf herder.
The filmmakers have taken their time, reportedly looking at thousands of young actors for the part, and now they’ve finally started to narrow down their choices. Among those on the shortlist are Miles Teller, Ansel Elgort, Dave Franco, and Logan Lerman. Hit the jump for more on the Han Solo shortlist. Read More »

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 was a special kind of disaster. A year and a half removed from the wreckage, it has become fascinating in an anthropological sense – here is a movie that broke one of the most popular movie franchises in Hollywood industry and gave a major studio a black eye so severe that they had to sit down with Marvel Studios and Disney because they no longer had any idea what to do with the world’s most popular superhero not named Batman.
The end results: Sony signed off on Peter Parker joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe in Captain America: Civil War before getting his own solo movie that is set for release on July 28, 2017…and a new animated Spider-Man movie with no connection to his live action counterpart from directors/miracle workers Chris Miller and Phil Lord. However, that second project has undergone a delay and will no longer open in the summer of 2018. It has shifted to a new date with a handful of interesting, if not solid, implications.
