Sony Signs Up for Phil Lord & Chris Miller’s The Reunion


Filmmakers Phil Lord and Chris Miller have been on quite a roll at Sony, having directed the hit animated comedy Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs and last year’s comedy hit 21 Jump Street, starring Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum, so it makes sense that the studio is staying in the Lord-Miller game, by jumping on board their next comedy project The Reunion, which Miller will direct from his own script with both of them producing under their Lord Miller banner.

Other than taking place at a high school reunion, there is no other information except that Sony’s Jonathan Kadin and Hannah MInghella will oversee the film, and the duo will first direct the sequel tentatively called 22 Jump Street, which looks to start filming later this year.

Before that, the former “How I Met Your Mother” writers who met at Dartmouth are co-directing The LEGO Movie for Warner Bros, which you can see a trailer for here, and producing the upcoming sequel Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2, out on September 27.

You can watch a video interview with the duo talking about some of those projects by clicking here.
