This is cool news... if it pans out.

Variety is reporting that Sony is working on a potentially awesome franchise crossover movie involving the Jump Street and Men in Black worlds!

Yep, a crossover.

I don't know how it will work out considering that Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones will not be a part of this new project, but thinking about Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum's characters encountering aliens and MIB just sparks expectatoins of great fun.

If done right.

The only snag I see is that the man they are looking at in early talks to direct the project is James Bobin.

His resume includes The Muppets and Flight of the Conchords.

But it's early and maybe he'll land the gig, then again, maybe not. If he does land the directorial gig, it should be interesting.

Oh, by the way, Hill and Tatum are producing.
