One “21 Jump Street” spinoff isn’t cool. You know what’s cool? Two “21 Jump Street” spinoffs. In addition to “MIB 23,” which will see a crossover between “Men in Black” and the comedy/action series whose first two films were led by Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum, Sony is also developing a female spinoff about two undercover cops.
Rodney Rothman, who wrote both “22 Jump Street” and “MIB 23,” will write the as-yet untitled spinoff; he may also direct. Hill and Tatum will appear in the “Men in Black” crossover, though there’s no word yet on whether they’ll also feature in this latest venture, which will follow the first film’s formula of having two police officers pose as high school students in order to solve what’s surely a most important case.
All of these movies are, of course, based on the television series that originally ran from 1987-1992. If the reaction that greeted this summer’s “Ghostbusters” well before it was even released, news of this all-female spinoff is certain to receive a warm, totally-not-sexist reaction from the deepest, darkest corners of the internet.
