Sony moving forward with 23 Jump Street

Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill are set to return as officers Jenko and Schmidt for a third time, as Sony gives the green light to 23 Jump Street .

According to Deadline , the studio is moving forward with the project, and has appointed Rodney Rothman, one of the writers on 22 Jump Street , to produce a script.

With 22 Jump Street currently sitting pretty as the tenth highest grossing film at the US box office this year, the move should come as little surprise, with Sony keen to cash in on a good thing.

The report doesn’t reveal whether Chris Miller and Phil Lord will be returning to the directors’ chairs, although it does suggest that the gig is theirs if they want it.

Failing that, the duo will likely assume production duties, as has been the case with the sequel to The LEGO Movie , which is slated to arrive in summer 2017.
