Jonah Hill Gives "21 Jump Street" Movie Update

Jonah Hill Gives "21 Jump Street" Movie UpdateSubmit Comment
ComingSoon caught up with Jonah Hill (Superbad), who said that his big screen adaptation of the 1980's television show "21 Jump Street" will probably go in front of the cameras this year.

"We hired directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller, who directed 'Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs' and are friends of mine," he explained. "It's about cops who go back to high school. Young rookie cops who go back to high school."

The story is an original idea by Hill that will be shaped into a script by Michael Bacall (Scott Pilgrim vs the World) and Joe Gazzam. The plan is to keep the same tone as the series but still have a few surprises for fans.

"[Audiences are] not expecting what it's going to be," Hill continued. "It's not a parody of the show. I'm not playing Johnny Depp's character. It's a group of people that go back to high school to deal with a drug problem. To deal with crime in high school. It's a comedy with really cool action. We're not doing something serious like 'Miami Vice.' But it's not a parody. It's a funny movie with a lot of great action and a real story. I've been saying that it's like a John Hughes movie with 'Bad Boys' style action."

He continued: "There might be a couple of surprises in there. The Chapel's there. There will be stuff from the show."

@Jeff: There were a couple of movies made already where old people went back to HS undercover. One with John Cryer (i think)back in the 80s and one with Drew Barrymore in the 90s. Both sucked balls.

the show was average and im guessing this has to be 100x better to be worth the $15 to spend 90 odd minutes of my life in a cinema....
