Studio bosses found success with the 2012 movie starring Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill, as well as its 2014 sequel, and now they are developing a spin-off which will feature two women in the lead roles.

The two Jump Street movies have grossed more than $530 million (£331 million) at the worldwide box office for Sony, and a third installment, 23 Jump Street, is already in the works.
