It sounds crazy but the rumors were true. Variety reports that Sony is working on a Men in Black Jump Street crossover film.
First revealed by the Sony hack in 2014, the crossover has now found a perfect director, James Bobin (Flight of the Conchords, The Muppets). “Nothing’s changed,” Phil Lord told MTV shortly after the story broke. “It’s still a crazy idea, and we only do things that seem like they’re going to be terrible… We’re really focusing on what’s a great story for Schmidt and Jenko and how to tell the next chapter in their lives. And perhaps use creatures from another world at the same time!”
The script was written by Rodney Rothman, who worked on 22 Jump Street. Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill are set to reprise their roles as Jenko and Schmidt, and will additionally produce. However, Men in Black‘s Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones are not involved. Yet. Although, according to sources Sony is considering rebooting the MIB franchise with “younger, fresher faces”.
