How Lord & Miller Make Bad Movies Good - Spider-Verse Analysisand
By Nellie Andreeva. No one is commenting but the value of the pact is believed to be in the nine figures. The latter is said to have been a major selling point that helped bring Lord and Miller to Sony TV in a very competitive situation with multiple independent studios and a streaming platform pursuing them. They remain in business with the studio — now part of Disney — as executive producers on two upcoming animated series, Bless the Harts for Fox and Hoops for Netflix. While Lord and Miller have strong relationships on the Fox side of the company via 20th TV, they have a complicated history on the Disney side after their dismissal from the Han Solo Star Wars movie.
Philip A. Having met at Dartmouth College , they are known for directing and writing the animated films Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs and The Lego Movie , as well as directing the live-action comedy film 21 Jump Street and its sequel, 22 Jump Street According to The New York Times , Lord is from Miami ; his mother is a Cuban -born psychologist, and his father recently retired from the aviation business and before that directed a dance company, Fusion, for 10 years. Miller is from the Seattle area, where his father runs a lumber mill. Lord and Miller both grew up making short films with an affinity for animation.

Deadline revealed last month that studios were hot and heavy in the chase to bring the deal to their lot, and this was the film deal everyone wanted. This is the first overall movie deal for the duo; they set their TV operations at Sony Pictures Television in an epic-sized five-year deal last April. Under the new deal, Lord Miller will develop films in the comedy and drama space, based on original content, existing IP and other media formats with an emphasis on championing fresh voices. Both were recently upped within the company. We are thrilled to collaborate with them and welcome them to the Universal family.

This marks the first overall feature deal for the team, which has purposefully remained independent producers on the film side. With the expansion of their Lord Miller production banner, including the addition of Aditya Sood as president of film and an expansive five-year overall television deal with Sony Pictures Television, a first-look deal on the features side was a logical next step. Under the new deal, Lord Miller will develop features in both comedy and drama based on original content, existing IP and other media formats with an emphasis on championing fresh voices. We are thrilled to collaborate with them and welcome them to the Universal family.
