Filmmaking duo Phil Lord and Chris Miller, hot on the heels of winning an Oscar for producing “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse,” have signed a first-look deal with Universal Pictures.

This marks the first overall feature deal for the duo who not long ago did a five-year overall television deal with Sony Pictures Television.

Lord and Miller previously helmed “21 Jump Street” and “The LEGO Movie” along with the first incarnation of “Solo: A Star Wars Story” before it was retooled during production.

Under the new deal, Lord Miller will develop features in both comedy and drama based on original content, existing IP and other media formats with an emphasis on championing fresh voices.
