21 JUMP STREET
“In the action-comedy 21 Jump Street, Schmidt (Jonah Hill) and Jenko (Channing Tatum) are more than ready to leave their adolescent problems behind. Joining the police force and the secret Jump Street unit, they use their youthful appearances to go undercover in a local high school. As they trade in their guns and badges for backpacks, Schmidt and Jenko risk their lives to investigate a violent and dangerous drug ring. But they find that high school is nothing like they left it just a few years earlier – and neither expects that they will have to confront the terror and anxiety of being a teenager again and all the issues they thought they had left behind.”
There’s more comedy than in the original TV series, but I don’t mind. And there’s a great interaction between Jonah Hill and Cahnning Tattum on screen. The 21 Jump Street movie is going to be a hit.
The film is directed by Phil Lord and Christopher Miller and the cast includes Jonah Hill, Channing Tatum, Brie Larson, Dave Franco, Rob Riggle and Ice Cube. From what I heard Johnny Depp, who was actor in the TV series, will have a cameo in the film.
The release date of 21 Jump Street is set March 16, 2012.
