Channing Tatum Still Wants to do 23 Jump Street

Channing Tatum has said he still wants to complete a Jump Street trilogy with a sequel to the 2012 and 2014 Jump Street movies.

The buddy cop action comedy movie series starred Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill as two underachieving cops that are sent undercover at a high school. Both films were a critical and commercial success grossing a combined total of $532 million worldwide. Yet unfortunately, a third film failed to materialize.

While speaking to at a press junket for his newest movie, the romantic comedy Fly Me to the Moon, Tatum was asked about the unmade sequel which was supposedly going to be a Men in Black and Jump Street crossover movie.

Details of the movie first emerged 10 years ago when Sony Pictures was hacked and e-mails relating to the film were leaked. The film then had the tentative title of MIB23 since it would crossover the worlds of Men in Black and Jump Street. In March 2016, British director James Bobin was attached to direct, but with no new movement on the film by 2019 it was confirmed that the project had sadly been cancelled.

Despite all that Tatum still wants to make the film. Stating it was one of the best scripts he had ever read for a third movie.

I’d love to see 23. I’d love to do it with Jonah. Jonah I know wants to do it. We’d love to just get to go play again.

Fly Me to the Moon starring Channing Tatum and Scarlett Johansson will be released in theaters in the United States July 12th.
