It’s been a little more than three months since writers-producers-directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller (Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse) signed a major five-year deal with Sony Pictures TV. Under the terms of the deal, Lord and Miller will create and devlop comedy and drama comment for broadcast, cable and streaming as well as supervise other […]
Writers, producers, and directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller (Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse) are swinging their way to a friendlier neighborhood, with the creative duo departing 20th Century Fox TV for a major five-year deal with Sony Pictures TV. The Oscar-winning pair were the subject of a very competitive bidding war among multiple outlets, with […]
Earlier this week, we let you know about a particular hammy joke that was ultimately cut from the Oscar-nominated, Sony-animated film Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse. Turns out it wasn’t the ONLY joke deemed unworthy. Back in 2010, Bono and The Edge of U2 fame wrote a musical for director Julie Taymor based on the Marvel Comics web-slinging hero called “Spider-Man: […]
The creative world lost a giant earlier this month with the passing of Stan Lee, but his presence will be felt in the upcoming animated feature film Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse. It’s not a secret that Lee had already filmed numerous cameos for upcoming Marvel Studios releases, but we didn’t know the exact details of his Spider-Verse involvement. […]
It turns out that producers Phil Lord and Chris Miller had one stipulation for Sony regarding Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse; they agreed to do the project ONLY if it was the story of Miles Morales. Sony is ALREADY planning a sequel for their animated Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse film which opens next month, so obviously they’re pretty happy with […]
If you haven’t read Andy Weir‘s second novel Artemis, you really really should. The author of The Martian followed up his red planet survival and adventure story with a lunar tale featuring a female protagonist. She lives and works on the first colony on the Moon called Artemis, and it’s being developed into a film that Phil […]
Let’s be honest, when it was announced that directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller were being let go from their already in production Solo: A Star Wars Story, we all wanted to talk to Alden Ehrenreich. Well ok, I know I did. The actor cast to play young Han Solo (the first pick of the directors, in fact) would more than […]
A lot has been said about Alden Ehrenreich, the actor stepping into the tall boots and blaster belt of (in)famous smuggler Han Solo in the upcoming Disney film Solo: A Star Wars Story. Fans have been opining up and down the galaxy far far away since he was cast, and of course, when the directorial pair of Phil […]
Ron Howard had only been named the new director of the Untitled Han Solo Film for less than 24 hours before he found himself facing questions during an appearance at the Cannes Lions advertising and media conference. But that did give Ron Howard One thing Howard wanted to make clear from the very start was […]
The Star Wars film world is still reeling from the announcement today that writing/directing team of Phil Lord and Chris Miller who were doing the Han Solo solo film had parted ways with the galactic giant. Rumors abound, of course, as they would in such a situation. Popular theories that don’t seem unlikely include things like going over budget, […]
The principal photography for the untitled Han Solo Star Wars Story began yesterday and StarWars.com has posted a picture of the entire cast in the cockpit of the Falcon. We don’t know a lot about the Han Solo movie to the point where we only know who two of the the people featured in the […]
Chris Miller, co-director of the upcoming Han Solo movie, has revealed that filming has begun on the movie, via a photo he posted on Twitter. Since it’s a slow news day, and since every other site is doing it, we’ll explain the plainly obvious things going on in the tweet as if you couldn’t figure them […]
The ‘young Han Solo movie‘ seems to be slowly but surely assembling its cast and shaping up. We have our Han, but now we need to start filling out the rest of the cast. It seems we are close to a female lead too. Variety are reporting that Tessa Thompson, Naomi Scott and Zoe Kravitz. The […]
I was making the headline how Alden Ehrenreich was confirmed as Han Solo for Solo film… and realized how odd that sounded. It’s been believed for months that Ehrenreich had the role for the stand-alone Han Solo film (that sounds better), but it was confirmed today at the Star Wars Celebration. The announcement was made […]
According to Deadline, Fox has committed to a pilot for the upcoming Greatest American Hero remake. The project, in the works for some time, is shepherded by Dope writer/director Rick Famuyiwa and directing duo Phil Lord & Chris Miller, already familiar with the work of Hero creator Stephen J. Cannell from their two films based on […]
THR is reporting that the LEGO Movie and 21 Jump Street directors Chris Miller and Phil Lord have signed on to direct/write a Star Wars stand-alone film focusing on a young Han Solo. Miller and Lord were expected to develop a Flash film for Warner Bros as well as direct the next LEGO Movie and […]
I’m not at all surprised by this but, for the sake of crossing Ts and dotting Is, here’s the word. Coming Soon asked Phil Lord and Chris Miller if we could expect Marvel superheroes in the next Lego movie. There’s certainly enough of them in the Lego toy line. They said… probably not. But maybe. […]
It seems that the dream is over.
People have been clamoring for 21 Jump Street and The Lego Movie directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller to replace Ivan Reitman, and now it may actually happen.
Warner Bros. have marked out a May 16th 2017 release date. It's a long time for me to cross my fingers, but I'll do it.
