Phil Lord is having a cracker of a year with the success of the Lego Movie and the soon to be released 22 Jump Street, once again starring Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill as a mismatched pair of undercover cops.
Phil Lord and his co-director/co-producer Christopher Miller seem to excel at turning bad-on-paper ideas into cinematic gold. 22 Jump Street might not be as surprising as 21 Jump Street was, but it looks every bit as funny. With movies like Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs and TV shows such as How I Met Your Mother, and Brooklyn Nine Nine. Lord is the perfect choice for our first Director of the Week.
If you haven’t seen any of his works of art, he is well worth the look.
