The Men In Black - 21 Jump Street Crossover MIB 23 Gets a Logo


MIB 23 -- the crossover between Sony's 21 Jump Street action-comedy franchise and their Men in Black sci-fi/comedy franchise -- is still happening, and now it's got an official title treatment.

The logo revealed by Sony at 2016 CinemaCon featured the letters "MIB" in the metallic finish used in previous Men In Black logos and the number "23" in red similar to the red in previous Jump Street logos.

Little information has been made available yet, although it's assumed that Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum will return to reprise their roles from 21 Jump Street and 22 Jump Street. Whether the Men in Black will be recast or whether they'll bring back actors from previous films is, at this point, anybody's guess. At least one report has said that Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones are definitely not coming back, although whether they'll be replaced altogether or whether Sony will make a run at Josh Brolin to reprise his role as a younger Jones isn't known.

James Bobin is expected to direct the crossover, which will enter production in June. Bobin worked as a director and producer on HBO's Flight of the Conchords, and directed the feature film version of The Muppets.


While the idea for the crossover first came to light during the 2014 hacking of Sony Pictures, details on the film's plot remain udner lock and key.
