“Jump Street” and “Men in Black” are crossing over. Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill set to reprise their roles.
“22 Jump Street” ended with a look spoof-version look into the future of their characters: Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill carrying on their antics at a dance school, at a culinary school, etc. It was hilarious and teased a possible sequel(s) for the franchise. Now, in an interesting turn of events and in order for the studio to keep the franchise alive, Sony is crossing over “Jump Street” with “Men in Black.”
Yes, a movie crossover is happening! Tatum and Hill will reprise their roles as the undercover detectives, but unfortunately, Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones will not be back for the crossover. Instead, Sony will cast two other actors to take their place, most simply because Smith and Jones have become too expensive and the new actors will likely be younger. Rodney Rothman is set to direct.
