The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that for the female version of 21 Jump Street is being written by two teams. Bob’s Burgers writers Lizzie and Wendy Molyneux and Lucia Aniello and Paul W. Downs from Broad City will be writing competing scripts – one of which will eventually become known as ‘that other Jump Street film’.
In a move that seems like it’s the new ‘let’s make a universe out of this!’ where every single film series needs to have an equivalent female lead version, well, alongside Ghostbusters and The Expendables, 21 Jump Street is getting a female lead version. Whether this will link over with the Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill series is unknown, but probably a given.
Whatever script wins will no doubt be amusing and worthwhile. One may feature a lot of butts, the other on the other hand may feature a lot of talk about pegging and weed.
