It looks like 21 Jump Street is already making a comeback… but as a female buddy comedy this time!

Variety reports that Rodney Rothman, who wrote the original Jump Street movies, is returning for the female-led script. He’s also likely directing the film, as well.

“We think that there’s something fun about keeping that irreverent spirit of Jump Street, but maybe having it be told through a female undercover cop point-of-view,” said Columbia Pictures president Sanford Panitch “We’ve had enough male buddy comedies. The script is really funny and has a freshness to it.”

The studio is planning for quite a few reboots including Men in Black and Charlie’s Angels and perhaps even Bad Boy 3.
