Female-Led 21 Jump Street Spinoff Adds Writer and Director
Sony Pictures is not dropping their spinoff from the Jump Street spinoff, despite losing Phil Lord and Chris Miller as directors. Now, there's a writer on board with Rodney Rothman set to pen the script as well as being eyed to direct.
Since being in development last year, it had Lucia Aniello and Paul W. Downs penning the script, before Lizzie and Wendy Molyneux were brought on to concurrently write a different version of the film.
It looks likely that Rothman will essentially be mixing the best of both scripts, which is not a fool-proof way to make a solid script. Either way, Rothman's history in writing for film credits him with Get Him to the Greek and Grudge Match, as well as the Jump Street/Men in Black crossover which seems to remain active.
