Although we at SuperHeroHype made the decision not to run any news that broke as a result of last year’s terrorist hack on Sony Pictures, MTV today has an intriguing update on one of the stories that you may or may not have read about elsewhere: The LEGO Movie helmers Phil Lord and Chris Miller have toyed with the idea of crossing over their 21 Jump Street franchise with another key Sony property – Men in Black. The outlet spoke with Lord and Miller on the Golden Globes red carpet and learned that such a crossover is not necessarily off the table.
“Nothing’s changed,” says Lord. “It’s still a crazy idea, and we only do things that seem like they’re going to be terrible… We’re really focusing on what’s a great story for Schmidt and Jenko and how to tell the next chapter in their lives. And perhaps use creatures from another world at the same time!”
The creative pair were also asked another recent rumor that they may helm an animated Spider-Man film. Again, it sounds like such a project still has every chance of moving forward.
“We’re developing a lot of things, you know,” adds Miller. “And they may or may not all happen, but that’s how the business works.”
Naturally, fans shouldn’t get their hopes up for either project at the moment, but check back for further details as they become available.
