Jonah Hill Doubts the 'Men in Black'/'21 Jump Street' Crossover Will Get Made
Published Aug 11, 2016The last we heard about the proposed Men in Black/21 Jump Street crossover was that it was definitely, 100 percent happening. That came from Sony, but now Jonah Hill has suggested otherwise.
In a new interview with Postmedia, Hill explained that the crossover was initially his idea, but now he's not so sure if it'll work.
"I had the idea," he said. "But I doubt that movie will get made."
He added that he's unsure as to how the film's humour would work:
It's too complicated. They're trying to make all the deals, but it's kind of impossible with all the Men in Black stuff. The Jump Street films were so fun to make and the whole joke of them was they were making fun of remakes and sequels and reboots and then now it's become a giant sequel, reboot. It's almost become what we were making fun of and it's hard to maintain that joke when it's so high stakes.
Having said that, Hill also mentioned that he was open to the idea of making a third Jump Street film regardless of how the Men in Black ties pan out.
