The 21 Jump Street spin-off focusing on a pair of female undercover cops has landed writer Rodney Rothman.
Rothman wrote the screenplays for both 21 Jump Street and 22 Jump Street, as well as the still-in-development, still-very-silly Men in Black cross-over MIB 23. It's fair to say, then, that he has experience with this sort of thing. What's different this time is that he may well also be directing. What this means for the film is up in the air; his only other directing credit is on another upcoming film penned by him, The Something, a sci-fi film starring Seth Rogen with a current far-off release date of 2021.
The film, like many recent women-lead spin-offs/remakes, sounds like it's going to be a mirror version of the first film, following two female cops as they go undercover as high school students.
The as-yet untitled spin-off is early enough in development to not have a release date, so watch this space.
