Men in Black / 21 Jump Street crossover could actually happen!

January 15th, 2015 by Irwin Fletcher Comments


Remember all those rumours that surfaced due to the Sony hack scandal? …well, we have some follow-up news regarding one of the most ridiculous conceptual mash-ups that came out of those leaks –  the 21 Jump Street/Men In Black crossoever. Phil Lord and Chris Miller (The LEGO movie), have been toying with the idea for a while now, and now they have opened up on the possibility of the concept coming to light.

MTV spoke with Lord and Miller on the red carpet at the Golden Globes, and here is what they had to say:

“Nothing’s changed, …  it’s still a crazy idea, and we only do things that seem like they’re going to be terrible… We’re really focusing on what’s a great story for Schmidt and Jenko and how to tell the next chapter in their lives. And perhaps use creatures from another world at the same time!”

The duo were also asked to elaborate the other rumour that the were going to direct an animated Spider-Man film, and just like the Jump Street/Men and Black mash-up, it seems that there is still a possibility of the animated feature going ahead:

“We’re developing a lot of things, you know, ...  and they may or may not all happen, but that’s how the business works.”

Don’t build your hopes up just yet, as we seen many potential developments come to light, only to fall through. However, stay tuned for further updates on the projects.

What do you think of a Men in Black/21 Jump Street crossover? Let us know what you think peeps!
