How 22 Jump Street Accidentally Started A Major Fire

11 hours ago | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

22 Jump Street was one crazy production. There was an octopus inking, a gun-happy car chase and Jillian Bell.s spotlight-stealing fight with Jonah Hill, to name a few memorable moments. When you have the dynamic duo of Phil Lord and Chris Miller at the helm, these types of shenanigans are expected. What wasn.t, though, was that time the co-directors torched the end zone of a football field. But it.s cool, .cause it was an accident.  During a Reddit Ama with Lord and Miller, they were asked about the craziest thing that happened to them on set of 22 Jump Street. For Miller, there.s one all too clear answer. We accidentally burned down the end zone of a football stadium when a fireball effect got out of control. It was not funny at the time but now to me it is funny. The Jump Street crew filmed scenes at »

MacGruber 2 a realistic possibility, says Will Forte

21 hours ago | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The Last Man On Earth's success - or otherwise - holds the key to when to expect MacGruber 2...

Debuting over the weekend was the new TV project from Will Forte. He's taken the lead in The Last Man On Earth, a show he's also created. The first episode screened on Fox in the Us over the weekend, with The Lego Movie and 22 Jump Street's Chris Miller and Phil Lord directing it. The pair came up with the original idea, were looking at turning it into a movie, and took the plan to Forte. He then reworked it a little, and in turn took the project to television.

And it seems as though the success of The Last Man On Earth will have some bearing on another Will Forte project, MacGruber 2. Chatting to The Wrap, Forte admitted "it seems like we have a realistic shot at getting [MacGruber 2] made", adding that »

The Last Man On Earth Season 1 Review

28 February 2015 2:57 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

This review is based on the first two episodes of season one, which were provided for us prior to broadcast.

The words “The Year 2020 (two years after the virus)” appear on screen against the backdrop of a barren desert, before dissolving as a Rv bus speeds across. Phil Miller (former Saturday Night Live star Will Forte) drives himself from coast to coast while sporting a bushy, untamed beard. His meek calls of, “Hello?” echo across the empty cityscapes. He drives his bus through a mall in New Jersey. Dejected and in stained clothing, Phil spray paints “Alive in Tucson” on a highway sign, then quietly re-enters his bus and drives away.

Balancing wry wit with these slower, pensive moments, The Last Man on Earth brings the sweep of dystopian television shows into the comedy realm. Co-created by 21 Jump Street and The Lego Movie writer/directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller »

'MacGruber' Sequel is Still 'Priority #1' According to Star Will Forte

27 February 2015 5:01 PM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

It's been about six months since we had any real update on the progress of MacGruber 2, a sequel that surprisingly has some legs even though the film bombed hard at the box office. The "Saturday Night Live" feature adaptation of the late night sketch parody of "MacGyver" has gained quite a following on home video though, and star Will Forte and writer/director Jorma Taccone have been at least slowly writing a sequel. And since Forte is currently doing the rounds for his new show "Last Man on Earth" on Fox (which you should watch because Phil Lord & Chris Miller have a hand in it), we have news on how it's progressing There's a confusing quote going around from Hollywood Life that has Forte saying, "In a couple weeks, when post-production is over, I'm gonna get in there.” Somehow people thought this meant he was in post-production on MacGruber 2 already, »

Review: Will Forte and Lord & Miller steer Fox's inspired 'Last Man on Earth'

27 February 2015 2:30 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

I've expressed my enthusiasm for Fox's new Sunday comedy "Last Man on Earth" in a number of different tweets and the responses tend to fall into a common mixed emotion that I'd describe as "excited skepticism." It can be boiled down to, "It looks funny... But does it work as a series?" On the eve of the Sunday, March 1 premiere of "Last Man on Earth," my own answer can now take one of two forms: The first: I've seen three episodes -- or, rather, I've seen the hour-long block that will air on Sunday, plus an additional half-hour -- and "Last Man on Earth" works rather wonderfully for that duration, which is really all I can ask from a network TV show when I review it. I've reviewed comedies based on both more episodes and fewer episodes and while I can't say that I know that the 50th episode of »

‘The Last Man On Earth’ Review: Will Forte Show Funny & Original, Says Dominic Patten

27 February 2015 11:44 AM, PST | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

There's more end of the world on Sunday nights with the March 1 debut of Fox’s The Last Man On Earth. Starring SNL alum Will Forte and produced by The Lego Movie team of Phil Lord & Chris Miller, the single-camera comedy is very different from The Walking Dead. And, as a big fan of the AMC blockbuster zombie apocalypse series, I mean that in a good way. As my video review above says, the premise is all in the title as temp Phil Miller finds himself seemingly the sole… »

TV Review: ‘The Last Man On Earth’

27 February 2015 8:00 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The opening portion of “The Last Man on Earth” recalls “The World, the Flesh and the Devil” — a 1959 post-apocalyptic movie starring Harry Belafonte — and when did anybody ever expect to read that about a Fox comedy? Still, the program’s melancholy tone, provocative concept and rumination on loneliness (and whether the only thing more infuriating than surviving without other people is negotiating with them) is mightily offset by a preoccupation with lowbrow flourishes like bathroom habits without functional plumbing. So while the one-hour premiere warrants further attention, that curiosity stops short of a wholehearted commitment to keep “Last Man” company.

A strange construct that has to be reviewed gingerly to avoid spoilers, “Last Man” stars and is produced and created by Will Forte, which means spending more time with the “Saturday Night Live” alum — in this character, anyway — than is likely prudent. Because while there’s a conscious riff on »

Sony Pictures Fires Digital Chief Bob Osher (Exclusive)

26 February 2015 2:15 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Sony Pictures Digital president Bob Osher, who oversaw Sony Animation and Imageworks for the past seven years, has been fired, according to knowledgeable sources.

Thursday’s firing comes amid an ongoing shakeup at the studio. On Tuesday, Tom Rothman was named chairman of its motion picture group in a surprise move that followed the Feb. 5 ouster of Amy Pascal as co-chair of the Culver City-based studio.

In conjunction with Osher’s departure, Sony is restructuring the digital operations he led. Imageworks, its character animation and visual effects arm, will now be folded into the company’s motion picture group. Post-production services, worldwide product fulfillment, production services and asset management will be infused into both the motion picture group and Sony Pictures Television.

Randy Lake, executive vice president of Sony Pictures Digital Productions, will lead the organization while reporting to the television and motion picture group, Sony Pictures Entertainment CEO Michael »

Exclusive: Behind-the-scenes shots of Will Forte as 'The Last Man on Earth'

26 February 2015 11:38 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The world of Fox's "The Last Man on Earth" is a vast wasteland, a vast hilarious wasteland.  It's "28 Days Later" only with fewer corpses. In fact, there are no corpses. At TCA press tour last month, I asked creator Will Forte and pilot directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller about how the world of "Last Man on Earth" smells. "The world smells very nice," Forte told reporters amiably. "I think that the dead bodies have been sedentary for long enough that, as long as you don’t poke them you’re probably safe." At the same panel, I also asked the "Last Man" creative team about the challenges of realizing the abandoned comic wasteland. Forte observed, "I think avoiding noise is incredibly hard. Like, obviously, anytime you’re shooting anything, the sound of an airplane or the sound of a train is really hard. Lord agreed, "Yeah, we picked a »

The Last Man On Earth Review – TV Fox

26 February 2015 11:13 AM, PST | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

The main thing to know about Fox‘s The Last Man on Earth before going in is that it’s a long con. Fox is keeping things under wraps with the Will Forte vehicle (the clip above finally lets on that someone else is on Earth), but there’s only so much you can hide if someone really wants to know. For example, if you just go to IMDb.com, you find that Kristen Schaal, January Jones, Mel Rodriguez, and Cleopatra Coleman are all on the show as well.

The gimmick is clear going in, and Will Forte is a talented enough comedian and actor that he can sell the idea of jumping on board with a few clips of lamp bowling. But, as I said, this is a long con, and no amount of selling an audience on a few gags is really setting the proper stage.

Will Forte Acts Out His Own Fantasies on Fox’s ‘The Last Man on Earth’

25 February 2015 11:18 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Because the title and premise of “The Last Man on Earth” suggest that star and creator Will Forte’s character will be alone on the show, his co-stars had to keep mum about their characters’ details at Tuesday night’s L.A. premiere of the Fox series. But that didn’t stop them from speculating what they would do if they found themselves alone on the planet in a similar predicament.

January Jones decided she would set up camp on Rodeo Drive, “just to have access to all the free clothes and shoes and bags and jewelry.” Jones explained her plan further: “Then I would take all that, learn how to sail a boat and go to Hawaii. I’d probably read a lot, play dress-up, make friends with some dolphins. I’d always wear couture.”

Will Forte Is The Last Man on Earth and It Looks Like the Best Freakin' Time Ever

25 February 2015 7:42 AM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

All by himself.   World, meet Phil Miller aka The Last Man on Earth. In Fox's highly ambitious and inventive sitcom from Will Forte and The Lego Movie's Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, the Saturday Night Live vet takes on the role of the last living human in the year 2022, searching the world for any other survivors. And he's doing it pantless. But judging from these exclusive pictures from the series premiere, airing on Sunday, March 1, being the last living person on Earth doesn't seem half-bad. In fact, it seems kind of awesome. Especially if you're Will Freakin' Forte. Come on, it looks like he has Two Wilsons. Suck »

'Lego Movie 2' Gets Titled 'The Lego Movie Sequel'

25 February 2015 1:31 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Just over one year after The Lego Movie hit theaters, and just days after the animated blockbuster lost Best Original Song at the Oscars, Warner Bros. officially announced that the follow-up will be entitled The Lego Movie Sequel. The studio announced in October that the sequel will hit theaters in 2018, after the spinoffs Ninjago and The Lego Batman Movie arrive in 2016 and 2017, respectively. Warner Bros. hasn't handed out exact release dates at this time, but all three projects are certainly on the right track.

The new title certainly makes sense, given not only the original Lego Movie title, but also because it is being written and produced by Phil Lord and Chris Miller, although they are not directing. Their self-aware style was evident not only in The Lego Movie, which they directed, but also in their live action blockbusters 21 Jump Street and 22 Jump Street. They are also producing the Ninjago and The Lego Batman Movie, »

The Lego Movie 2 Gets A Title And Director

25 February 2015 1:14 AM, PST | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

The follow-up to the insanely popular The Lego Movie is expected to hit our screen in 2018, and while original directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller won't be at the helm second time, their presence will still be felt as they are handling scripting duties on the sequel, which has been confirmed as being called The Lego Movie Sequel. Warner Bros. have also announced first time feature director Rob Schrab will be taking control of Emmett and his colourful brick world. Well known as the creator of the cult comic book Scud: The Disposable Assassin, Schrab has also worked as director on t.v. shows such as Community, The Mindy Project, and The Sarah Silverman Program, and wrote animated movie Monster House. He has a background very similar to Lord and Miller, which should make him a good fit for the project and the pairs humour. We have two more Lego »
