UPDATE

Lawrence Kasdan and Jon Kasdan are writing the script. The film is slated to be released in May 2018. Miller & Lord just released the following statement:

This is the first film we’ve worked on that seems like a good idea to begin with,” the helmer duo said in a statement. “We promise to take risks, to give the audience a fresh experience, and we pledge ourselves to be faithful stewards of these characters who mean so much to us. This is a dream come true for us. And not the kind of dream where you’re late for work and all your clothes are made of pudding, but the kind of dream where you get to make a film with some of the greatest characters ever, in a film franchise you’ve loved since before you can remember having dreams at all.

BREAKING

Hollywood Reporter is reporting that superhot The Lego Movie filmmakers Chris Miller & Phil Lord will write, produce, & direct the Star Wars spinoff film about the Young Han Solo!

Where does this leave The Flash? Hollywood Reporter also says,

They were to develop a Flash feature for Warners as a directing vehicle but now with the untitled Star Wars spin-off, that is likely off the table. As is a third Jump Street movie. However, they could stay on as writers or producers on those projects.

Stay tuned as more develops…
