Film Producer, Director & Writer; Best Known for "The Lego Movie" and "21 Jump Street"

REQUEST BOOKING INFORMATION

Phil Lord Biography

The director-writer-animator-producer has racked up huge hits in both animation (“The Lego Movie,” “Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs”) and live action (the “21 Jump Street” franchise). Along with Chris Miller, his writing and directing partner of 16 years, Phil Lord is equally at home on the small screen, and both were Emmy nominated in 2015 for directing comedy series “The Last Man on Earth.”

The team’s first big break was the inventive but short-lived 2002 animated series “Clone High,” and their first major critical and commercial success was 2009’s surreal comedy “Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs,” which grossed an impressive $243 million and spawned a 2013 sequel that did even better ($274 million).

In between, Lord and Miller directed the 2012 high school action comedy smash “21 Jump Street,” which grossed more than $200 million. That in turn spawned the 2014 blockbuster sequel, which did even better ($331 million). But it was “The Lego Movie,” a $469 million triumph that cleverly avoided the pitfalls of feeling like a corporate branding exercise that underscored their deft touch and tonal dexterity and cemented their reputations as uber-creative disruptors.

Lord and Miller also won the Academy Award for Best Animated Feature as producers of "Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse" (2018), which was co-written by Lord, and produced the Academy Award Nominated "The Mitchells vs. the Machines" for Sony Pictures Animation.
