Animal Logic sets up Canadian base

20 May 2015 2:59 PM, PDT | IF.com.au | See recent IF.com.au news »

Animal Logic is expanding so quickly that its Sydney headquarters and the pool of visual effects and animation artists in Australia aren.t big enough to accommodate the workload.

Hence the move to launch Animal Logic Vancouver, a 450,000 square feet (41,806 square metres) facility which will exclusively handle animated films for Warner Bros.

Located in the city.s Yaletown creative precinct, the studio will open in September and by mid-2016 will have 300 employees, the vast majority locals.

Animal Logic CEO and co-founder Zareh Nalbandian tells If he is making a considerable investment in the facility but he has the financial comfort of a 3-picture deal with WB which will entail four years of production.

The Lego Movie sequel, written by the creators of the original hit, Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, will begin production in January. It.s the feature directing debut of Rob Schrab (Community, Parks and Recreation, The Mindy Project »

20 May 2015 12:40 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Australian visual-effects studio Animal Logic, which handled “The Lego Movie,” has signed a three-picture deal with Warner Bros. and will open a second animation studio in Vancouver.

Phil Lord And Chris Miller Says Barry Allen Is Their 'The Flash,' Will Be A Stand-Alone Movie

19 May 2015 12:30 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

One of the many, many projects Phil Lord and Chris Miller are working on is "The Flash," with Warner Bros. tasking the pair with developing the story for this superhero picture. With the movie not due in cinemas until 2018, the duo still have some time to figure out what their incarnation will be. Yet they seem to have figured out a path, and they recently shared what their version of "The Flash" will entail. "We’re trying to break a story," Lord told Hippojuice. "It’s interesting, because there’s a really popular TV show out there, and we’re trying to carve out space for the movie that’s apart from that. I think we’re doing alright. … I believe [our Flash] is going to be Barry Allen. … It’s going to be it’s own [thing, apart from the TV show]… it really is its own thing, and kind of a stand-alone movie.

Phil Lord & Chris Miller’s The Flash Is “A Different Take On Superhero Stuff”

19 May 2015 7:51 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Critics of Warner Bros.’ and DC Comics’ dark and brooding cinematic universe were likely a little taken aback when it was announced that The Lego Movie masterminds Phil Lord and Chris Miller had been tasked with directing The Flash. The pair, also behind both Jump Street action-comedies, did not fit the studios’ previously set mold at all. It made a little more sense, however, when Lord and Miller were also handed Sony’s animated Spider-Man movie. According to Lord, though, the two projects are alike in how they’re both “off a little bit to the side” from their respective franchises.

Lord appeared on podcast Hippojuice and, without revealing any juicy details about either tentpole, commented on why he and Miller were attracted to them. When asked about the Flash movie, which will star Ezra Miller as the Scarlet Speedster, the writer-director said:

We’re trying to break a story. »

19 May 2015 6:09 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

"21 Jump Street" and "The Lego Movie" writer/directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller are two of the few people who have their hands dipped into both Marvel and DC-based comic book adaptations currently in the works.

Most notably the pair are developing both the live-action DC cinematic universe film based on "The Flash" for Warner Bros. Pictures, along with an animated "Spider-Man" feature for Sony Pictures. However, the pair have not yet committed to helm either of these projects.

Speaking with podcasters Hippojuice about both projects, Lord spoke primarily about "The Flash" adaptation and confirms that their incarnation of the character will be Barry Allen but it will Not tie in to the popular The CW series currently airing that's based on the character:

"We're trying to break a story. It's interesting, because there's a really popular TV show out there, and we're trying to carve out space for the movie that's apart from that. »

Phil Lord talks The Flash movie, says it will probably be Barry Allen but not connected to the TV show

19 May 2015 5:03 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Phil Lord and Chris Miller are directors in high demand at the moment. Following the box office success like 21 Jump Street, The Lego Movie and 22 Jump Street, the duo have been on the studio must-have list, leading to them getting an animated Spider-Man movie over at Sony and The Flash movie over at Warner Bros.

Appearing on the HippoJuice Podcast, Lord spoke about The Flash and its connections to the TV show saying, “We’re trying to break a story. It’s interesting, because there’s a really popular TV show out there, and we’re trying to carve out space for the movie that’s apart from that. I think we’re doing alright.

The Flash movie: Phil Lord offers update

18 May 2015 10:43 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The Flash movie will definitely stand alone from The Flash TV show. And it'll be using Barry Allen too

Amongst the assorted films that Warner Bros has confirmed for the DC cinematic universe is a movie of The Flash. We know that Ezra Miller has been cast in the lead role, and that the film has a release date of March 23rd 2018. Furthermore, it was also revealed a little while back that the heavily in-demand Chris Miller and Phil Lord (Jump Street films, The Lego Movie) would be penning the script.

In a new interview with The Hippojuice Podcast, Lord has given an update on the film and the direction it's heading in. And signifciantly, it'll be independent of The CW's hit The Flash TV show.

"We're trying to break a story", Lord said. "It's interesting, because there's a really popular TV show out there, and we're trying to carve »

How The Flash Will Fit Into The DC Cinematic Universe

18 May 2015 5:29 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

As the first DC Comics film set to come out after Zack Snyder's Justice League, the upcoming Flash movie is a bit of a mystery. We know that Ezra Miller is attached to star in the film, and that Lego Movie directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller are currently working on the script, but that's pretty much where the solid info ends. One big question that's been hanging is how the movie will fit into the growing DC Cinematic Universe, and how it might employ other established characters. Well, if recent comments from Phil Lord are an indication, then it seems that Flash will be connected to the cinematic universe, but is expected to operate as its own thing within the continuity. Lord was recently a guest on an episode of the YouTube-based Hippojuice Podcast (about 8:58 in), and during the lengthy conversation dropped a few hints about what »

Phil Lord Discusses Flash And Spider-Man Movies

18 May 2015 5:08 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Jump Street and Lego Movie masterminds Phil Lord and Chris Miller are, as recently announced, developing both a live-action Flash movie for Warner Bros. and an animated Spider-Man for Sony. And while they've yet to commit to directing either, Lord has given a couple of hints to podcasters Hippojuice about the direction each project is headed. "We're juggling superheroes with the colour red in them," he jokes.The Flash gets the bulk of his interview attention, with the writer/director confirming that the film they're plotting revolves around the Barry Allen iteration of the super-speedy hero: the second character to wear the comics' costume. For those paying attention, that's the same Flash as the Arrow-connected CW TV series, but as has been par for the course so far with DC's properties, there will be no connection between film and show."We’re trying to break a story," says Lord. "It’s interesting, »

Phil Lord Talks The Flash Movie and Animated Spider-man; Says Barry Allen Likely

18 May 2015 4:33 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

It’s been said many times over but it’s true: Phil Lord and Chris Miller are two of the most exciting filmmakers working today. They’ve made a career out of turning “bad ideas” into great movies, be it Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, 21 Jump Street, or The Lego Movie. After really breaking out with last year’s one-two punch of 22 Jump Street and The Lego Movie, the duo have been courted to work on just about every kind of “big studio movie” you could think of. They’re in demand for good reason, and while they’ve yet to settle on their next film as directors, the two recently became attached to a few high-profile properties in the development stages. Lord and Miller are “developing the story” for Warner Bros.The Flash movie, starring Ezra Miller, and are “masterminding” an animated Spider-Man film for Sony by writing the treatment and producing. »

Phil Lord Talks The Flash Movie; Says He "Believes" It'll Be 'Barry Allen' In The Red Suit

18 May 2015 4:00 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Along with his creative partner Chris Miller, Phil Lord has become one of the most in-demand writers (and directors for that matter) in Hollywood, and last month we found out that the pair would next be turning their attention to Warner Bros.' The Flash movie. Lord was a guest on the HippoJuice Podcast recently, and spoke for the first time about where he and Miller are with the story. By the sounds of things they're trying to find a way to ensure this take on the Scarlet Speedster stands apart from the CW TV series, even though their incarnation of The character - who'll be played by Ezra Miller - will most likely also be Barry Allen. Interestingly, Lord also describes The Flash as "kind of a stand-alone movie". "We’re trying to break a story. It’s interesting, because there’s a really popular TV show out there, »

Phil Lord, along with creative partner Chris Miller, has turned into one of the most reliable writer/directors in Hollywood, and that means he’s got a hand in quite a few different projects. One is The Flash, the big-screen version of DC’s speedster hero, which Lord reveals will likely be a Barry Allen Flash movie. That’s the same version […]

It still feels a little surreal that the duo behind The Lego Movie and 21 Jump Street are playing in a big part in bringing not only one, but two major superheroes to the big screen. Both Phil Lord and Chris Miller are developing the story for The Flash for Warner Bros. and DC, as well as writing and producing an animated Spider-Man film for Sony. Busy guys.

6 May 2015 11:07 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Last Man on Earth recently wrapped its first season, and will return next season for its sophomore run of episodes. Fans of the show don’t just have that to get excited about, however, as THR reports that the show has picked up a new showrunner, in the form of The Daily Show, The Sarah Silverman Program, and South Park alum Dan Sterling.

Sterling will join star and creator Will Forte, and executive producers/directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller, who are staying on as executive producers of the show. Basically, we’re keeping the same talent that made the first season so successful, and adding another comedic voice to the room, thus turning it from a threesome to a foursome.

According to Miller, when we can expect to see that new season, and how many episodes it will entail, are still up in the air. At the moment, »

The Last Man On Earth Season 2 Lands Dan Sterling as New Showrunner

6 May 2015 12:49 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Changes are afoot for the Fox comedy series The Last Man on Earth. Will Forte served as creator, executive producer, writer, star, and showrunner throughout the first season’s 13-episode run, but fresh off a season two renewal, the folks at Deadline report that a new showrunner is stepping in to lighten the load. Dan Sterling—whose TV producer credits include The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, The Sarah Silverman Program, and the final season of The Office—has signed on as executive producer and showrunner for The Last Man on Earth’s second season. He joins existing executive producers Forte, Phil Lord, and Chris Miller on the series. The unique concept for Last Man on Earth got off to a stellar start with glowing reviews, but it took an unexpected turn a few episodes in that saw Forte’s protagonist turn into the semi-villain of his own show, while »

Sony's supposed short list of 'Spider-Man' directors does not inspire confidence

5 May 2015 4:25 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

There is a terrifically unkind way to report today's story, and a quick scan of Twitter should give you some idea of just how strong a reaction some people are having to the short list of directors that Deadline claims are in the mix to direct Sony's upcoming reboot of "Spider-Man." First thought: Miller and Lord are making the wrong movie for the studio. Second thought: why is this so difficult for Sony? After all, the original "Spider-Man" was a huge milestone in terms of how superheroes were treated on film. Sam Raimi got the tone so right it was ridiculous, and no matter what choices he made in the film, he proved that Spider-Man could work, and that he could bring the colorful world of Marvel Comics to the screen in a way that the whole world could enjoy. Was that really just 13 years ago? I can still remember »
