Following prior reports of Sony's plans to merge the popular 21 Jump Street and Men in Black franchises in a new crossover film, it appears the studio is moving forward on the project.

According to Variety, sources have told the outlet that James Bobin (The Muppets) is currently in talks to direct the movie, replacing Phil Lord and Chris Miller—the directors of 21 Jump Street and its sequel—who are busy preparing to helm the Han Solo standalone film.

According to Variety's sources, the studio has yet to officially greenlight the project, but is looking to begin production in June.

While Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum will return to star as Jenko and Schmidt, Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones won't be back to play their iconic Men in Black characters Agent Jay and Agent Kay. Instead, Sony is looking to reboot Men in Black with a cast of younger actors.

In addition to the upcoming crossover, word leaked last spring that the studio was also developing a female-centric Jump Street spin-off, with Lucia Aniello and Paul Downs attached to write. There's no word yet on if that project is still in the works.
