John Landis: Found. On JibJab.

Director John Landis, the ’80s comedy-horror maestro behind Animal House, The Blues Brothers, and An American Werewolf in London, hasn’t done anything remotely good since 1988 (Coming To America). He hasn’t made a feature film in eight years (though that’s about to change). So what’s he been up to?

Sketch comedy on the Web, of course. Landis chose and directed six sketches for a contest hosted by JibJab, the online workplace productivity deterrent. Is Landis, as they say, "back"? Decide for yourself.

Does this mean we’ll soon see Alex Cox shooting mobisodes for T-Mobile? Or John Hughes taking story credit on a J. Lo movie? (Wait… that actually happened.) We’re on, what, our sixth ’80s revival at this point? Come out of the shadows, ’80s director-gods: The small(est) screen awaits.
