    So Much Awesome: Will Arnett Is Batman, Channing Tatum Possibly Superman In 'Lego: The Piece Of Resistance'; Chris Pratt Leads Cast

    On paper, the idea of a movie based on Lego sounds ridiculous and so easy to be exploited into a quick cash grab, brainless, toy brand blockbuster. But thankfully, the folks behind "Lego: The Piece Of Resistance" are putting their aims high for something that sounds like it's going to ...

    '21 Jump Street' Helmers Phil Lord & Chris Miller Lining Up Magician Thriller 'Carter Beats The Devil'

    Phil Lord and Chris Miller are starting to look like something like miracle workers. Until a few years ago, the duo were known, if they were known at all, for their work on short-lived MTV animation "Clone High," but made their directing debut three years back with 3D CGI animation "Cloudy With Chan...

    10 Reasons Why '21 Jump Street' Exceeded Expectations

    On paper, "21 Jump Street" was not an enticing proposition. A reboot of a 1980s TV series with a ludicrous premise -- fresh-faced cops go undercover as high school students. Produced by Neal Moritz, a man whose last attempt at an action-comedy reboot of a famous property was the dreadful &...

    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...

    Review: '21 Jump Street' Is A Hilarious, Heartfelt Action-Comedy That Just Might Be An Instant Classic

    In cinema as in life, self-awareness can be a virtue or it can be a deadly thing. Since there’s essentially no such thing as originality, conceding that you’re working within existing parameters or with familiar formulas excuses, and can sometimes enhance, the effectiveness of a lot of necessary dec...

    'Robot Chicken' Helmer Chris McKay To Co-Direct 'Lego' With Phil Lord & Chris Miller; 2014 Release Pegged

    The various movies in development based on childhood toys and board games, probably the most serious symptom of the creative bankruptcy facing most studios, have, thankfully, yet to come to pass for the most part. McG's "Ouija" had the plug pulled on it, Ridley Scott's "M...

    'Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs' Sequel To Be Written By 'Horrible Bosses' Writers

    John Francis Daley & Jonathan Goldstein Penning Script; Phil Lord & Chris Miller Not Returning To DirectHitting theaters in 2009, "Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs" was a surprise hit both with critics and audiences. Hauling in over $240 million worldwide, it was proof that Pixar wasn't the only animation studio with a stranglehold on the public and it also announced the arrival of directing duo Phil Lord and Chris Miller who have since parlayed the cred they earned on that film, into their first live action gig, taking on the upcoming "21 Jump Street." A sequel was pretty much inevitable, and now the wheels are formally in motion as 24 Fram...
