It sounds so terrible it might just work.

The 2014 Sony leaks revealed the studio's plans to merge their Jump Street and Men in Black franchises and now it's official.

Sony has just announced the project - MIB 23- at Cinema Con but only Jump Street due Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill look set to return.

There's no mention of Men in Black's Tommy Lee Jones or Will Smith, or even Josh Brolin.

James Bobin is expected to helm the flick while producers Phil Lord and Chris Millers are already on board.

Speaking to MTV they said, "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."
