'23 Jump Street' Headed to Theaters, Possibly Medical School

Despite 22 Jump Street ending in a sequel-fatigued self-parody sequence that took the franchise beyond 43 Jump Street, all the way to 2121 Jump Street, it seems we will nonetheless get the follow-up predicted therein. Because that's what happens when a film makes over $300 million in theaters. According to Deadline, Sony Pictures and Original Film have started development on 23 Jump Street, hiring on 22 and soon-to-be Greatest American Hero writer Rodney Rothman to pen a script under the guidance of series directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller. Notably, those two still aren't confirmed to direct, and neither is it confirmed that Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill will, as teased, actually go to medical school for this one. Probably, though. Why else get into the business of adapting an '80s crime procedural as a comedy franchise if not to spectacularly realize inherently stupid ideas?
