Wait, what? There's going to be a '23 Jump Street' and 'Men In Black' crossover film
23 Jump Street might merge with the Men in Black franchise for a crossover film 23 Jump Street-Men in Black.
Los Angeles: The world of Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill's film 23 Jump Street might merge with the Men in Black franchise for a crossover film 23 Jump Street-Men in Black.
James Bobin, director of The Muppets and Flight of the Conchords, is in early talks to direct the action comedy, said sources, adding that Sony Pictures Studios plans to start its production in June, reports variety.com.
However, a spokesman for the studio had no comment regarding the news.
Hill and Tatum will return to reprise their roles as Jenko and Schmidt, respectively. They are also producing the film.
As for Agent Jay and Agent Kay, makers have already made it clear Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones will not be reprising the roles they made famous, as the studio is aiming to relaunch the franchise with younger and fresher faces.
Bobin will reportedly be stepping in for Phil Lord and Chris Miller, who directed the first two movies but are unable to direct the crossover due to their commitment to the Han Solo, which they’re helming at Disney.
The idea of intertwining both franchises into one film came to light during the Sony hack crisis in the winter of 2014 when a leaked email from former co-chair Amy Pascal surfaced, containing information regarding Hill’s involvement in the hybrid.
The plot details of the film are under wraps.
The trailer for Joel and Ethan Coen's next movie Hail, Caesar! is out and it looks every bit what you would expect from the duo.
22 Jump Street continues the goofy adventures of the 21 Jump Street duo, Schmidt (Jonah Hill) and Jenko (Channing Tatum) as they graduate to going undercover at a university.
After the success of the third installment of action-comedy "Men In Black", studio bosses have confirmed another part — and actor Will Smith has reportedly given the nod to be part of it.
