Good thing Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum are BFFs, because the “22 Jump Street” duo are linking up again for Universal’s “Hail, Caesar!”

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Hill is in negotiations to join the Joel and Ethan Coen-directed comedy about Eddie Mannix, a fixer for the Hollywood studios in the 1950s.

In addition to Tatum, the two-time Oscar nominee will be joining a cast that already fields an all-star cast of Josh Brolin, Ralph Fiennes, Tilda Swinton and George Clooney.

Like Hill, Scarlett Johansson is in early talks to join the star-studded project.

The Coen Brothers are also slated to produce the movie with Eric Fellner and Tim Bevan.

“Hail, Caesar!” is set to go into production this fall.
