Phil Lord and Chris Miller Setting to Remake “The Greatest American Hero”

(via Deadline)

Having mastered the challenges of adapting 21 Jump Street and LEGO into successful film franchises, Phil Lord and Chris Miller are now being tasked with bringing 80s TV series The Greatest American Hero to the 21st century television.

Fox, which is already set to premiere Lord and Miller’s Last Man on Earth in the coming months, has made a put pilot commitment for the project that Lord and Miller will be executive producing with Rodney Rothman writing.

While reviving a sitcom about a teacher who gets a suit endowed with super powers from the 80s may seem daunting, Phil and Chris would be the duo to pull it off.
