Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill head to 21 Jump Street
Posted by: Kristy Sturdivant
Channing Tatum is at the top of the list to lead up the cast for the film version of 21 JUMP STREET which will be distributed by Sony Pictures. If he hops on board he will join a cast that already includes Jonah Hill and they will begin shooting as early as next spring. The movie will be directed by Phil Lord and Chris Miller, who also gave us CLOUDY WITH A CHANCE OF MEATBALLS. For those too young to remember, 21 JUMP STREET follows a group of undercover cops who look extremely young and go into local high schools to take down crime. The television show launched the career of Johnny Depp and gave us Richard Grieco.
I didn’t watch 21 JUMP STREET when it was originally aired but I did get the joy of viewing it thanks to TV on DVD. I wasn’t terribly impressed although it was fun to see Depp so young. Hopefully Sony will be able to give us a better updated version, minus the horrible 80’s wardrobe.
