At one point in time Sony thought it would be a wise idea to merge the 21/22 Jump Street series with their Men in Black series.
I’m not exactly sure why, but it seemed like Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum were going to try and make it work, with director James Bobin stepping in for Phil Lord and Chris Miller.
Cutting out Lord and Miller already took my attention off of the film, yet I was wondering how Tatum and Hill would operate within the MiB universe.
Now, this latest quote is making it sound more and more like an awful pipe dream:
“I had the idea, but I doubt that movie will get made,” Hill stated. “It’s too complicated. 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. I love Channing and I love (directors) Phil Lord and Chris Miller and I love making those movies — they’re a lot of fun. So I hope it works out.”
