Sony Pictures Prep '23 Jump Street' for Channing Tatum & Jonah Hill

22 Jump Street

For those who stuck around for the credits of 22 Jump Street, you know that Phil Lord & Chris Miller ran the gamut of possible sequels that could follow the first buddy cop comedy sequel in the surprise hit franchise adaptation of the 80s TV series. And now we'll likely get to see at least one of them in action as Deadline reports Sony Pictures and Original film have hired Rodney Rothman, the scribe behind 22 Jump Street, to write 23 Jump Street. It's not clear if Lord & Miller will return behind the camera for this outing, but they'll at least be overseeing the script in addition to producing the sequel. We're just wondering if Tatum and Hill will go to medical school as in the tease from the last sequel's end credits. More below!

Here are just some of the fake sequels from the end of 22 Jump Street:

24 Jump Street

25 Jump Street

2121 Jump Street

Neal Moritz is also back to produce along with Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum, who will both return in the sequel as well. The question is whether the quality comedy can sustain itself. 22 Jump Street was able to improve upon the original in its meta comedy making fun of sequels while simultaneously being one of the few comedy follow-ups that matches, if not exceeds, the quality of the original film. So can all these guys bring that same magic back for a third go-round? It wouldn't be too hard to skewer the tropes of a trilogy, especially if it's portrayed as the final chapter. The project is just now starting the long road to hitting the big screen though, so stay tuned to see how this plays out.

Oh you're right. To be honest Korea still has not gotten a release. So I have been in the dark. I have to wait until October...

Sony just basically pumps life into dead projects. What a shame.
