- 21 JUMP STREET SEQUEL… 22 JUMP STREET??
21 Jump Street has been one of the best and most entertaining films of the year.
A smart script and hilarious performances from Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum lifted directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller’s Miller and Lord’s offbeat sense of humor. It was a easily enjoyable film, that was very profitable at the box office. Needless to say, a sequel was always on the table.
Columbia Pictures President Doug Belgrad recently confirmed that the 21 Jump Street sequel was in development, but he confused quite a few people by saying that production would begin this fall, even though there’s no finished script and no director(s) firmly attached.
Collider recently spoke with Jonah Hill during the press day for the upcoming sci-fi comedy The Watch, and the actor set the record straight regarding the status of the follow-up.
“We’re shooting a year from September, and Michael Bacall and I are writing it right now.”
Hill is gearing up to start filming Martin Scorsese’s The Wolf of Wall Street and Tatum is poised to start shooting the action thriller White House Down soon. Though a September 2013 production start date ensures that both Hill and Tatum can return, the status of directors Mill and Lord coming back is less certain.
The duo is currently prepping the CG/live-action mix feature LEGO: Piece of Resistance, and they’ll likely be in the thick of production by the end of next year.
So we not sure if the directors will be returning, we sure hope they do as 21 Jump Street was a real cool movie, and if you going to do a sequel why not stick with the guys that helped make it a success.
Well that’s what I think, why don’t you let me know and comment below!
