Washington D.C. [USA], Dec. 4 (ANI): Rodney Rothman, who penned '22 Jump Street,' will write and possibly direct a spinoff to the '21 Jump Street' franchise.
Sony Pictures is setting Rothman to script, with an eye toward directing, a '21 Jump Street' spinoff movie where the main cops are female, reports deadline.com.
Neal Moritz is producing the spinoff, whose concept has been floated for a while, along with a separate film that will be a mash-up with '22 Jump Street' stars Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum.
The film revolves around two female cops who go undercover as students in some sort of a school setting.
