'21 Jump Street' Getting Female Spinoff, 'Men in Black' Crossover
The success of "21 Jump Street" and its sequel, "22 Jump Street," signified that this franchise would continue to grow, and now, two new reports reveal that there are two more "Jump" flicks in the works: a spinoff and a surprising crossover.
The first was Broad City" writers and producers Lucia Aniello and Paul Downs attached to write the screenplay. No details about a possible plot (or who may star) were provided.
TheWrap followed up with its own report, writing that Sony is hoping to replicate its "Jump Street" success with the female-led flick, which will "feature the same comedic tone" as its predecessors. In addition to that project, an even more intriguing one is on the horizon for the brand.
According to TheWrap's report, the third film in the original "Jump" franchise -- to again feature leads Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill -- will actually be a crossover flick with the "Men in Black" franchise. Much like the first two films made fun of reboots and sequels, respectively, "the next 'Jump Street' movie will send-up the current trend of Shared Movie Universes by having Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum enter the 'Men in Black' universe and investigate aliens," the trade writes.
It sounds pretty strange, but then again, so did a "21 Jump Street" reboot, and we all know how that worked out. Stay tuned to see how all this moves forward.
