Here come the Men in Black – and they’ve brought Jenko and Schmidt along with them for the ride.
During Sony’s panel at the ongoing CinemaCon event, the studio’s planned Jump Street/Men in Black crossover was given an official title: MIB 23. An official logo was also showcased during the event – you can find it below, courtesy of ComicBook – though no further details were disclosed at the time of writing.

Last we reported on Sony’s franchise crossover, both Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill were attached to reprise their roles as the bumbling undercover cops, with James Bobin (The Muppets, Alice Through the Looking Glass) primed to take up the reins from Phil Lord and Chris Miller, themselves busy with Disney’s Han Solo origins movie. Having helped fire the Jump Street series into an international success, though, Lord and Miller remain involved as creative consultants. »

What was once a harebrained lark of an idea is now an actual movie: yes, the franchise crossover of "21 Jump Street" and "Men In Black" is real and happening. And now it has a title. While their "Spider-Man: Homecoming" news hogged the spotlight, Sony had more to share about their upcoming slate, including the name of that aforementioned mashup: "MIB 23." James Bobin ("The Muppets," "Alice Through The Looking Glass") will direct the movie, with Phil Lord and Chris Miller still keeping their hands in the mix as producers. Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill will be back to reprise their roles, with production slated to kick off in June, but the connection to the "Men In Black" series seems to be in name only, with younger actors stepping in for Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones. I'm still not sold on that concept, but then again, no one really figured "21 Jump Street" would turn out. »
