Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, who directed both '21 Jump Street' and '22 Jump Street,' are going to be producers on the film, along with Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill, but it isn't known if they will also be back as directors.

'21 Jump Street,' released in 2012, earned over $201 million at the worldwide box office, and '22 Jump Street' was even more successful, grossing $319.6 million worldwide on a $50 million budget, so it is no surprise another instalment will be made.

"We did at one point test a version of the movie where Ice Cube was pitching more missions to Jonah and Chan and they said, 'You know what, we're good, we don't want to do any more of this stuff,'" Lord said. "When we showed that to a test audience they were so sad because all they want is to believe that this goes on forever."
