The 23 Jump StreetMen in Black crossover project may have found its director. Sony is in early talks with The Muppets director James Bobin to helm the movie, EW confirmed.

Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill are attached to star as their Jump Street characters and to produce; however, Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones will not appear as the dark-suited agents they played in all three Men in Black films.

Sony is looking to begin filming in June. Jump Street directors Phil Lord and Christopher Miller are producing the crossover along with Neal Moritz. The screenplay is by 22 Jump Street scribe Rodney Rothman’, but details on the plot are under tight wraps; people who want to read it have to drive to Sony Studios in Culver City, California, EW confirmed.

News of a Jump StreetMIB crossover was leaked during the Sony hack in 2014. Reports last April indicated the project was still alive, in addition to a female-centric Jump Street spin-off.

Bobin also has directed episodes of Flight of the Conchords and Da Ali G Show. He helmed the upcoming Alice Through the Looking Glass, out May 27.
