Female-Driven 'Jump Street' Spinoff in the Works From 'Broad City' Writers

After setting in motion Paul Feig's female-driven "Ghostbusters" movie, Sony Pictures is aiming to take a similar approach with its "Jump Street" franchise.

According to TheWrap, the studio has hired “Broad City” writers Lucia Aniello and Paul Downs to develop a female-centric spinoff of  "21 Jump Street" and its sequel "22 Jump Street," which starred Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum.

Both TheWrap and The Hollywood Reporter also mention the proposed "Jump Street"/"Men in Black" crossover revealed in December in leaked emails, but no further details are offered. Producer Neal Moritz will reportedly oversee the expansion of the franchise, alongside Hill, Tatum and "Jump Street" directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller.

The "Jump Street" movies have grossed a combined $530 million.
