Titan Maximum (2009)
Negotiations are officially underway and if a deal were to place, McKay will be directing from a script penned by Bill Dubuque (The Accountant). At this time, it’s unclear as to how exactly the Nightwing solo movie will fit into the DC Extended Universe. While the character of Robin – or rather his vandalized suit – was referenced in last year’s Batman V Superman, and though Zack Snyder was notoriously coy about the character’s identity throughout development, it was later confirmed to be Jason Todd.
Richard John “Dick” Grayson represents a different proposition altogether. Created by Bob Kane and Bill Finger, Nightwing was first introduced as a trusty new sidekick to Gotham’s Caped Crusader, before shedding the Robin mantle to become the city’s elusive Nightwing.
Phil Lord and Chris Miller will be stepping into a producing role this time around, but with his experience on shows like Robot Chicken and Titan Maximum in addition to his role on The Lego Movie, McKay has proven that he’s got the chops to recapture the magic of the first film. Or so we hope.
One of the best parts of The Lego Movies was Will Arnett’s Batman, who served an important and scene-stealing role in the adventure.
The first movie bowed in February and has since grossed more than $360 million worldwide.
Producers Dan Lin, Phil Lord, Chris Miller and Roy Lee are steering the franchise, with Jill Wilfert from the Lego Company exec producing.
Plot details are being kept under wraps. Michelle Morgan & Jared Stern are writing a treatment for the next installment .
Courtenay Valenti is overseeing for the studio/Warner Animation group.
McKay, who is repped by UTA and Mosaic, was animation co-director on the first “Lego Movie” and has also worked on TV programs like Cartoon Network’s “Robot Chicken” and “Titan Maximum” for Adult Swim. Deadline Hollywood first reported the news.
McKay, who served as animation co-director on the first film, will replace Phil Lord and Chris Miller in the director's chair.
The duo will remain involved in The Lego Movie 2, producing the film while Michelle Morgan and Jared Stern craft a story for the follow-up.
According to Deadline, the Warner Bros movie will either be a straight sequel to this year's box office hit or focus on the Lego Ninjago range.
McKay's directing credits include TV shows Robot Chicken, Titan Maximum and Moral Orel.
The Lego Movie opened last month and has earned more than $360 million at the Us box office so far.
Deadline reports that Mila Kunis (Ted, Oz: The Great and Powerful) has been cast opposite Nick Swardson, Tj Miller, Rob Riggle, Brian Posehn and Kumail Najiani as the voice of a demon in a story that sees two best friends (Swardson and Miller) as they rescue a buddy who’s been dragged to hell by accident.
Kunis’ character is reportedly a female demon whose ability to navigate the underworld makes her the toughest rogue demon in Hell. Her independent streak comes from the fact she’s half human. She was sired by the Orpheus of myth when he traveled down the River Styx, nailing everything in sight.
Their first production will be the sixth season of Adult Swim’s Robot Chicken and the shows tribute to the characters in the DC Comics universe. This means that ShadowMachine Films, the producere of the series, will no longer be involved in it. The shows 100th episode airs January 15.

But what about the man behind the puppets, pulling the strings? No, not Seth Green! What about Robot Chicken co-creator, executive producer, writer (and occasional voice) Matthew Senreich? Ugo recently had a chance to catch up with Senreich over the release of Robot Chicken: Star Wars' third installment, and the future of the Emmy-winning series at large.
So who's coming in the new season? What Star Wars characters might we hit next? What will we see at San Diego Comic-Con this year? What's next for Titan Maximum? Read on to find out!

Palicki recently appeared on the failed Fox show Lone Star but is probably better known for her work as Tyra on Friday Night Lights. As far as I know, I haven’t seen her in anything, but she seems to fit the bill perfectly.
Palicki is in her late 20s; she's 5’11” and played basketball and ran track in high school. According to IMDb, she has a tattoo of her parents' names on her arm, so I guess she's that rare combination of hip and sweet. But can she act?
It seems she can. Deadline opines that her performance on Lone Star was a "standout," and generated "a lot of talk about [her] star potential." And while she's done some work on middling fare such as Supernatural and South Beach,
Most notably snubbed was ABC’s Lost with twelve nominations and only one win for a Creative Arts Award in the category of Outstanding Single-Camera Picture Editing for a Drama Series. Maybe the series finale confused the people voting for the Emmy’s? The many nominations honored the show’s legacy and conclusion, but coming away with a sole technical win is incredibly disappointing.
On the other hand, Jim Parsons had a satisfying win as he nabbed Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series for his role as the eccentric Dr. Sheldon Cooper in CBS’s “The Big Bang Theory”, overcoming a loss last year to Alec Baldwin for the same category.
Such celeb faves as Betty White and Neil Patrick Harris took respective wins for their work as guests on “Saturday Night Live” and “Glee” in the comedy series acting category. John Lithgow and Ann Margret took top honors as drama guests respectively for Showtime’s “Dexter” and NBC’s “Law & Order: Svu.” In accepting his kudo, Lithgow accidentally thanked HBO.
That pay cabler had a lot to be thankful for as it took home 17 trophies, seven of which were for its miniseries “The Pacific.”

When a once peaceful solar system is threatened by a genocidal madman, Titan Force Five commanding the mighty Titan Maximum are humanity’s only hope for survival. It’s robo-bashing, laser-blasting, monkey-flying, sometimes naked space-faring action and adventure from the creators of Emmy-award winning Robot Chicken.
Fresh off the success of Robot Chicken, Seth Green and co. tackle an altogether less anarchic series – using the same stop-motion animation that made their first series such a hit – in what turns out to be a comedic take on the classic 80’s cartoon Voltron, if Voltron was rated 18 and not PG!
Titan Maximum essentially blends the same humour found in Robot Chicken but with more action and more story,
We've got a stellar treat for TV fanboys today. 'Titan Maximum,' the Adult Swim series created by the masterminds of Emmy Award-winning 'Robot Chicken,' Matt Senreich and Tom Root, is now available on DVD and we've got three copies to give away.
With a mission to protect the solar system, the Titan Force Five pilot different sectors of the giant kick-ass robot Titan Maximum. So think 1980's spacefaring action adventure, but with all the absurdity we love about Adult Swim. Um, awesome!

I really could have done without the over-the-top violence, because I actually found the story behind Kick-Ass (Lionsgate, Rated R, Blu-Ray-$39.99 Srp) to be pretty damn good, adapted from the comic book of the same name that envisions what it might be like for a real-life teen to decide to become a superhero-styled vigilante. What elevates it, though, is an impressive cast - including Nic Cage
