Throw some D’s on it! Sony Pictures has started developing a female-driven spinoff of its 21 Jump Street franchise with Broad City writers Lucia Aniello and Paul Downs. The studio declined to comment on the comedy project, based on the Fox series that aired between 1987 and 1991 and starred Johnny Depp and Peter DeLuise as undercover cops.
Sony Pictures began work last year on 23 Jump Street, selecting Rodney Rothman to script the third version of the Channing Tatum–Jonah Hill franchise. The directing team of Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, who helmed 21 Jump Street and 22 Jump Street, are overseeing development of the script and will produce the third film with Neal Moritz, Hill and Tatum. 22 Jump Street grossed $320 million worldwide. Sony is going into production in June on a female version of Ghostbusters starring Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon, Leslie Jones and Melissa McCarthy. Paul Feig is directing.
