The future of Sony Pictures’ 21 Jump Street-iverse appears to be expanding. A rumor has broken today via The Tracking Board that suggests that Sony has brought aboard “Broad City” writers Lucia Aniello and Paul Downs to draft a female-driven 21 Jump Street spinoff. There’s no word yet, however, on whether the project will follow new characters or will instead turn the spotlight to the existing team of the barely-named undercover officers Fugazy and Jr. Jr., played by Dakota Johnson and Rye Rye in the 2012 original.
It is believed that this new project is being developed in tandem with 23 Jump Street, which will see the return of Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum’s officers Schmidt and Jenko. There’s also rumors of a potential 21 Jump Street / Men in Black crossover, which Phil Lord and Chris Miller have even commented on in the past, hinting that they’re quite open to the possibility. Whether or not that would become a separate feature altogether remains to be seen. As always, check back with us for updates and confirmations as they become available.
