After two movies that have grossed over $500 million on an overall budget of around $100 million, it's no surprise to report that Sony Pictures and Original Film are moving ahead with '23 Jump Street', with Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill returning as the leads. Rodney Rotham - one of the primary writers on the sequel - has been tasked with penning the third film.

It's unclear whether Phil Lord and Christopher Miller will be back to direct though Deadline confirms they are overseeing the script and will certainly be producers, at the very least. Should the duo want the directing job, it's theirs. Neal Moritz, Hill and Tatum are also on the producers list.

'22 Jump Street' featured a hilarious closing credits sequence, touting over twenty fictional sequels - 24 Jump Street: Foreign Exchange Students, 2121 Jump Street - in Space, and 25 Jump Street: A Semester at Sea. Apparently the sequels segment was put together only weeks before the movie hit theaters and the directors were more than happy to mock the idea of endless follow-ups.
