Earlier this year a Men in Black/Jump Street crossover was announced with a title and logo even revealed. However, the project now looks unlikely to go ahead, according to Jonah Hill.
Hill told The Toronto Sun, that the process of making the deal happen is “just too complicated”:
“I had the idea, but I doubt that movie will get made. 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.”
Hill does however want to return to the Jump Street franchise:
“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.”
According to Variety, James Bobin (who helmed The Muppets) was reportedly set to direct the movie, replacing Lord and Miller.
While Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum were to return to reprise their roles as Jenko and Schmidt, with Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones being replaced by younger actors. But the film now looks to be off the table, sorry fans!
