AceShowbiz - Zendaya Coleman and Tiffany Haddish may be teaming up for a buddy cop movie. The two actresses are reportedly set to star in the new installment of the "21 Jump Street" film franchise, which will have female leads.
According to Production Weekly, the "Spider-Man: Homecoming" actress and the comedian of the "Girls Trip" fame will lead the spin-off, which is currently titled "24 Jump Street". Their characters are not disclosed yet, but it was reported before that Tiffany was offered the role of a cop who goes undercover as a teacher, with a fellow undercover cop posing as her daughter and a student.
When words about Tiffany's potential involvement in the movie were first floating around in late 2018, it was believed that Awkwafina was in talks for one of the lead roles. The "Crazy Rich Asians" star, however, has signed on for "Jumanji 3" which will presumably be filming for the next few months.
"24 Jump Street" has Rodney Rothman on board to direct, with the script he writes alongside Lizzie Molyneux and Wendy Molyneux ("Bob's Burgers"). Neil Moritz, Phil Lord and Chris Miller are set to produce the movie. No start date and release date are announced for the project just yet.
Rothman, Lord and Miller recently teamed up for Oscars' Best Animated Feature Film "Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse". Rothman co-directed and co-wrote the movie, while Lord and Miller served as producers along with Avi Arad, Amy Pascal and Christina Steinberg. Lord also co-wrote the screenplay.
Zendaya, meanwhile, has finished the production of "Homecoming" sequel, "Spider-Man: Far From Home", which is set to open in U.S. theaters on July 5. As for Tiffany, the high-in-demand star is featured as the voice of Queen Watevra Wa'Nabi in "The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part" and is also lending her voice in "The Secret Life of Pets 2". Her other 2019 upcoming films include "Limited Partners" and "The Kitchen".
