In some crossover news that will probably be funnier than The Simpsons x Family Guy, not quite as weird as Archie x The Predator,  and maybe only slightly less anticipated than Hey Arnold x Rugrats x every Nicktoons show, it appears that Sony Pictures is really working on thatJump Street meets Men in Black mash-up we first heard about through those leaked Sony emails all the way  back in 2014. And don't worry, it looks like it's going to happen a lot sooner than any Deadpool and X-Men crossover will. 

Variety reports that the studio is moving forward with plans to combine two of its biggest franchises into one giant, comedy-action film, and they plan to start production as soon as this summer. Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum are reportedly set to return as officers Jenko and Schmidt. We already knew from a while back that Sony was planning to go in a new, somewhat more diverse direction with the MIB franchise, so don't expect to see Will Smith or Tommy Lee Jones mixing it up with the younger guys, but do expect to see a woman in black.

Variety says James Bobin (who worked on HBO's Flight of the Concords and directed The Muppets movie) is in the mix as the possible director for the Jump Street-MIB crossover movie, since Phil Lord and Chris Miller, the geniuses behind The Lego Movie, 21 Jump Street and 22 Jump Street) will be busy working on their Star Wars universe standalone Han Solo movie.

There are zero details on the plot as the script is apparently under lock and key right now, but I think it's safe to say that at some point Ice Cube is going to yell at the worm guys before geting his memory flashed by a neuralyzer.
