I hope you’re ready for a few more Jump Street movies

Few people expected 21 Jump Street to be good, and even fewer expected its sequel to be good, but both of them turned out to be excellent films. Now it looks like Sony is going to continue the series, but not in a way that you’d expect. Rather than going the route of The Hangover, Sony is exploring a potential female spin-off of the series as well as a crossover with the Men in Black series.

First, they invaded high school. Then they took on the perils of the college experience. Now it looks like the men (boys?) of 21 Jump Street are moving aside to let the women have some fun. According to TheWrap, Sony Pictures is looking to develop a female-driven spinoff of the 21 Jump Street films. The franchise’s producer Neal Moritz, and directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller will reportedly handle the development of the film, while Broad City writers Lucia Aniello and Paul Downs will be penning the script. The concept of changing up established properties to a female-led cast comedies has been popular at Sony Pictures these days, with the announcement back in January that the Ghostbusters reboot would be made up of leading female comedians in Kristen Wiig and Melissa McCarthy, as well as relative newcomers Leslie Jones and Kate McKinnon. Casting has yet to be announced for the new film, but Broad City is well-known for its talented female cast, so Sony Pictures could certainly find talent there. There’s also chance Sony could look to the home of Broad City, Comedy Central, for more comedic talent such as Amy Schumer or Jessica Williams.
