    What. The. FUCK.

    Now they are rebooting the goddamn MEN IN BLACK MOVIES!!!!!!!!!!

    How the hell do you "reboot" something YOU JUST FINISHED!!!!!!!!!!


    :suicide:


    Thanks to Ghostbusters, the Jump Street movies are going to be rebooted with an female leads, and the dudes from Jump Street will be in the bullshit crossover crap.



    Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum will reprise their Jump Street roles in the film, which Sony is hoping to have ready to start production in June. However, Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones will not be appearing, meaning this crossover serves as reboot for Men in Black with the opportunity to cast two young up-and-comers as the proverbial Men in Black. This will no doubt become one of the most sought-after projects for any actor between the ages of 18 and 30, so prepare yourselves for a slew of casting shortlist stories.

    Phil Lord and Chris Miller will produce the film as they’re too busy to direct on account of some little Han Solo Star Wars spinoff movie that they’re directing for Disney. Neil Moritz, who produced the first two Jump Street movies, will also produce this crossover. Bobin, meanwhile, is coming off of jumping from The Muppets to the high-profile Disney sequel Alice Through the Looking Glass so he has plenty of experience A. With big effects budgets and B. Stepping into the shoes of accomplished filmmakers. His work on Da Ali G Show and Flight of the Conchords, which he co-created, also bodes well for his handle on the very specific comedic tone of this crossover.


    This essentially serves as a way to do 23 Jump Street without having to address the glorious joke during the closing credits of 22 Jump Street, as this isn’t an official sequel so much as a crossover—although a cameo from Bill Hader’s chef couldn’t hurt. I’m curious to see exactly how this film will work, but Tatum and Hill have such great chemistry that I’m sure they’ll translate to the Men in Black realm perfectly. Dropping Jenko and Schmidt into the secret world of extra terrestrial activity makes for endless possibilities, so I’m eager to see this one come together.

    I haven't seen the Jump Street films. I don't even remember what the TV show was about.

    I liked the Men In Black films (The First one at least).

    But this crossover shit is just stupid. I would have waited for it to come out on DVD and rented it but their is no such thing as video stores anymore , and I'm not subscribing to netflix or anything else of the kind.

    My biggest beef right now is this concept of Batman Vs. Superman. I don't think I'm going to see it.

    Batman cannot beat Superman. Superman is an alien from another planet who gets super powers from Earth's sun.

    Batman is a wealthy human with a costume , expensive gadgets and a cool car. Their is no competition here.

    I have to admit, I laughed my ASS off a the 21 Jump Street movies. :jj: They are absolutely aware of themselves and how stupid they are. They make fun of themselves all the way thru, especially the sequel. :jj:

    the 21 jump st was originally johnny depp's breakout role. it was a traditional cop show made with teens who could blend into the high school scenes to investigate drug and sex crime violent crimes that "adult" cops could not penetrate. there was no comedy in it at all.
