Hot on the news we reported yesterday about the 22 Jump Street DVD, we have word that Sony has green-lit 23 Jump Street and hired Rodney Rothman to write the first draft of the script that will be overseen by the directors of the first two films -- Phil Lord and Chris Miller.
Given the rich history that started with those 21 Jump Street quotes, Rothman has his work cut out for him.
Now, whether or not Channing Tatum’s Jenko and Jonah Hill’s Schmidt will be going to med school -- that we don’t know.
As you recall at the end of 22 Jump Street, Ice Cube (as Captain Dickson) informs Jenko and Schmidt, “You sons of bitches are going to medical school!”
If you also paid attention to the sequel that lampooned sequels, as the boys moved across the street to the Vietnamese church at 22 Jump Street, behind them was a sign that said, “Under Construction -- 23 Jump Street.” Maybe, just maybe, they’ll move there?
We’ll keep you posted as this project develops, and in the meantime, watch 21 Jump Street online and see how this fantastic farce got started.
And one last thing, check out this gif we got that is the closing credits of 22 Jump Street which lays out “plans” for all future sequels!
