Sony on Track for Two New '21 Jump Street' Projects?


According to recent reports, Sony is set to take its 'Jump Street' franchise to the next level with two new projects in the works, including a female-led spin-off. TheWrap has reported that Sony is moving forward with two new 21 Jump Street projects: a female-driven spinoff, and a 'Men in Black' crossover. While Sony has not yet officially confirmed reports, the strategy follows a trend that emerged after news broke that Sony plans to reproduce "Ghostbusters" in two films, one for each gender. The first "Jump Street" movie grossed just over $200 million worldwide, with the sequel raising the bar to gross $331 million worldwide.

  • Get Ready For Baywatch's Red Band Trailer!

    Baywatch is getting the red band trailer it deserves. The Seth Gordon-directed reboot follows in the footsteps of 21 Jump Street as it revives a classic TV show and brings it to new levels of vulgarity and raunchiness. Hardly surprising given that star Dwayne Johnson has described the movie as “far dirtier” than the original TV show.

  • Jonah Hill Doubts Jump Street And Men In Black Crossover Will Happen

    Recently, Sony announced that the studio was crossing over two of their more popular franchises, 21 Jump Street (which stars Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill) and Men In Black (starring Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones). If that sounds like your dream come true, those dreams might be shattered, because Hill doesn't necessarily think it will happen. “I had the idea,” Hill tells Postmedia Network. “But I doubt that movie will get made.” “It’s too complicated,” Hill concedes. “They’re trying to make all the deals, but it’s kind of impossible with all the Men in Black stuff. The Jump Street films were so fun to make and the whole joke of them was they were making fun of remakes and sequels and reboots and then now it’s become a giant sequel, reboot. It’s almost become what we were making fun of and it’s hard to maintain that joke when it’s so high stakes.”

  • Sony Jumps the Shark With Jump Street/Men In Black Crossover

    Sony Pictures is looking to expand their Jump Street franchise with a female-led spinoff movie and Men in Black crossover movie. The Men in Black crossover, which plans to send Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum’s characters into the Men in Black universe, will likely skewer the crossover fever that has taken hold of popular culture un the same way that 21 Jump Street , itself a reboot, poked fun at reboot movie, and sequel 22 Jump Street took aim at sequels. You won't need sunglasses for this to get out of your memory once it passes by.

    After putting into motion a female-centric Ghostbusters, Sony Pictures is looking at gender-bending another one of its budding franchises, 21 Jump Street. Lucia Aniello and Paul W. Downs, writers who are working on Comedy Central’s buzzy Broad City, have been hired to write a female-driven Jump Street spinoff. The move is aimed to broaden the franchise base for the franchise-light studio that is seeking ways to create its own cinematic universes. The two Jump Street movies have grossed over $530 million for Sony.
