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

January 15th, 2015 by Derek Robertson 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!

Derek Robertson has dabbled in many aspects of the media industry from a young age. He has always had an admiration for, film, science fiction and all things geek-like. Working in the music industry with Sony/BMG Records gave Derek insight and experience into video directing. Thusly, for many years he took a hands-on, multi-disciplinary approach in creating and editing treatments; working with performance artists, writing and producing music and working both; in front of, and behind the camera. Studying a Msc in Forensic Psychology has embedded a conceptual ethos that has spawned his signature writing style that he now infuses whilst blogging for numerous websites; writing music reviews, movie news, and reviewing network shows et al., . Derek continues to try and erase the boundaries between the homogenous and the insanely dull, culturally enmeshing contemporary socio-political aspects into the mix of the monolithic media industry.
