Surprise! That leaked news from the Sony email hack from last year has turned out to be true! Phil Lord and Chris Miller are working on an animated Spider-Man film for Sony — in fact, they’ll be the “masterminds” behind the project and will executive produce as well. However, the press release doesn’t mention them directing it, and doesn’t bring up anyone else, so who will helm the pic remains a mystery. According to Sony, it will exist independently of the live-action Spider-Man film universe and they have already dated it for July 20th, 2018. I wonder if we’ll see a different interpretation of Spider-Man here? Having two Spidey films going at the same time could be awfully confusing… unless the animated one is say, Spider-Man 2099 or Miles Morales, eh? Hey, I can hope, can’t I? Read more…

Phil Lord and Chris Miller Developing The Flash

It looks like Warner Bros. is starting to really pick up steam in regards to their DC Comics slate. With Suicide Squad well under way and Batman v Superman coming early next year, they seem to finally be learning from Marvel’s example and are putting in the work. Next up: Phil Lord and Chris Miller, the directing duo behind The LEGO Movie and 21 Jump Street, are reportedly developing a Flash film for Warner. They’re not directing or scripting (at least, not yet – they do have a lot on their plate but no one knows yet what their next film will be), instead they’reĀ building up a treatment for the studio. Hopefully they can come up with a unique take on the Flash. It also seems odd that Warner isn’t utilizing their existing TV series, but instead want to keep the film and TV universes separate… Seems like a missed chance, to me! Read more…
