    Warner Bros Create Pixar-Style Brain Trust For Animated Films, Includes Phil Lord & Chris Miller, Nicholas Stoller And More

    This was bound to happen, we're mostly just surprised it didn't happen sooner. You would think that with Pixar's long-standing track record of proving that originality, high standards and creative vision can produce results that please both audiences and critics, rival studios would copy...

    One of the biggest compliments you can pay a movie like the new Jonah Hill/Channing Tatum vehicle "21 Jump Street" -- based on a old television property and seemingly hatched inside a coldly cynical meeting between studio chiefs and big-name action producers (in this case "Fast and Furious" overseer...

    While talking with "21 Jump Street" directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller about their upcoming (and, it should be noted, totally wonderful) adaptation of the beloved 1980s television series (and we'll have their thoughts and insights on that soon), we had to ask them about their future projects, incl...
